    Question Confusion over where to start with developing apps

    Hi,

    Please forgive what is probably a naive question bit I am new to app development and programming. Basically I am interested in writing applications for Ubuntu/Linux and my background is Python and Web (HTML/PHP/Javascript etc).

    I have just written a Python program to change the desktop background by time of day and made an app indicator using GTK. However I know that Ubuntu is moving over to Qt/QML so I don't want to put a lot of effort into learning GTK if it is not going to stay around much longer. But I can't find much in the way of Qt integration with Python? For example how would I implement an app indicator in Python using Qt?

    Also my other question is if I write a python/qt app will that then run in Ubuntu Phone? Where will an app indicator sit on the phone interface? As I say I am new to this so sorry if it is a noob question.

    Thanks in advance.

    Matt

    Hi everyone. In art school we used a language called processing to do all kinds of neat things to images. I have recently started playing with Processing some more (processing.org) and have decided that I may just want to include my sketches in an Ubuntu Touch app. I don't have any really specific questions for the community at this point, as I am simply beginning my trial. I do wonder if there are any other programmers using Processing in these forums, and if anyone has already (successfully) tried this?

    So, for those unfamiliar with processing, you can export your sketch (fancy name for a program in processing) to Javascript, which I believe I can simply add into (import "processing.js" as Processing) This may be totally wrong, and not work at all, I am not really sure, but it is worth hacking around on for a bit (especially if it will work)
