[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Python and maemo API documentation

I'm developing some python applications for Nokia 770, and I think
documentation is not as good as I expected.

1) First, the code in the python tutorial in here:


is quite unreadable. There are no line breaks

2) I couldn't find docs for the Python Hildon API, but I looked at the
maemo hildon API for C, it should be enough:


If I look at the HildonWindow entry, I can see some functions for it.
However, it looks like HildonWindow inherits from another widget (I
guess it's GtkContainer?) so there are other methods, like add(). I
can't see this relationship anywhere, just in the example in python
tutorial. The Object Hierarchy is empty.

Other entries, like  API documentation control panel, status bar and
home applets are empty too:


(is this available in Python, by the way).

3) I know 'help' command is not available in python for 770, but there
should be another version for scratchbox with 'help' available. It
would be very useful! Maybe it is already available and I missed it?

Thanks very much!
