From Here To There

January 14, 2009

From Here To There is a quick introductory tutorial for people interested in building multi-level applications using the GObject stack, and having your own application be split between C and your choice of runtime. This tutorial uses Clutter and JavaScript, as we’re using for gnome-shell.

I’ve been working for a while now on two applications using the system (gnome-shell, and a personal project not yet ready for announcement), and while there is still a fair bit more introspection system work to do, so far I’m pretty happy with how it’s worked out for both projects. My personal project is actually a mashup of C for some graphics and system stuff, Java (JGIR) for the core application logic, and Groovy for some scripting and extensions. It’s quite polyglot; I’m practicing what I preach.
