I would wish to take up the project of making an Application Configuration
GUI for RTEMS in this year's GSoC.
I was studying the various approaches available and it eventually boiled
down to this-
1) To use the configuration
GUI from eCos and NutOS.
- Based on WX Widgets.
- Highly Portable
(runs on Windows and Linux)
The code is heavily based on templates which are difficult to understand
2) To use the config infrastructure used by the GNU/Linux kernel.
Works well on Linux.
Does not support MS Windows.
To write a cross platform GUI in python. This also can be done in 2 ways-
3a)- To start with an existing open source project like Xpresser.
Documentation is scarce.
3b) To code the application from scratch using python and GTK+. If any OS
specific requirements are needed then they can be coded separately.
Highly portable & modifiable.
Coding has to start from scratch.
This made me think that approach 3b would be the best for a baseline. These
are just my Initial ideas. A lot of other work apart from this (XML
parsing,rewriting conf.t etc) also needs to be done. I would discuss them
once the baseline becomes clear. Please help me analyse any deficiencies in
