Python Eventfeed for Harmattan

Jun 25, 2011

Here is "Python EventFeed for Hammatan", it's basically the events view of is intended for third party developers to add their own content to this view.

This library allows you to post new events to the Harmattan Event Feed screen and receive callbacks when events are clicked. You can post updates about new items that are found and create other kinds of cool notifications 🙂


The Event Feed screen is available in MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan on the N950 and N9 - this library allows you to integrate Python code with it.

Simple example

from eventfeed import EventFeedService, EventFeedItem

service = EventFeedService('yourapp', 'Your App')
icon = '/usr/share/yourapp/icons/example.png'

item = EventFeedItem(icon, 'Hello World!')
item.set_body('How are you today?')

def on_item_clicked():
    print 'the user clicked the item'


The resulting event should look like this:
