Android remote-control for Amarok

Postby jsharkey » Thu Aug 21, 2008 6:23 am

I've put together a nice tutorial on talking with DCOP applications (like the Amarok music player) with a simple REST-like Python bridge.

It's a nice example of having a background thread make REST-ful API calls to update a GUI. Also shows how android:tint can easily change icons on ImageButtons.
