Featured PyS60 Application #2
by Pankaj Nathani
Every 10 days, we would be featuring in the “Pys60 Applications” section, a new application on Pys60 !
The prominent aim of the “Pys60 Applications” section is to help the developers of Pys60 build standalone applications on Pys60.
This time we have a very special application as the Featured Pys60 Application #2.
Pys60 Application #2 : Mobile Web Server by Nokia !
Mobile Web Server consists of a Web server powered by Apache technology and a connectivity solution providing a mobile device with a global URL and HTTP access to it.
If you have not tried it yet, here is where you get started !
Many of you might be surprised to know that all mymobilesite.net applications like – Camera, Blog, Logs, Contact, Calender, Chat, etc are developed using Python.
The widgets (http://www.nokia.com/betalabs/mws-extensions) are using Python code in phone as well, see:
In fact, Mobile Web Server (MWS) is one of the main customers for the PyS60 team in Nokia and they always have the latest PyS60 version embedded in MSW distribution !
The open source version of MSW is available at http://wiki.opensource.nokia.com/projects/Mobile_Web_Server
Now here is one more interesting thing for all Pys60 developers:
“How to host and serve Python applications from a phone”
http://mymobilesite.net, that’s the place where everything starts.
Get a domain and install it on phone. Start playing with the applications, all made in Python.
Next step might be to make your own theme, that’s quite easy: Get your Theme
Then you might think about doing your own application to host on the phone, those can be talked about here: http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=129.
And here are documents to start with: Documentation
Also there is a Blog where you can take part in the conversation http://blogs.s60.com/mws/.
Right now one hot topic is Location-based services.
I have Mobile Web Server running on my both the devices and I am trying to set up something interesting on it.
After few days I think I will provide a guest login to my MWS for those of you who might be interested.
So stay tuned !
