Clutter: a beginner's tutorial

Dec 04, 2009, 00:31 (0 Talkback[s])

"But one problem with Clutter is a distinct lack of documentation - a lot of folks want to learn how to use it, but the web is somewhat lacking in tutorials right now. We hate to see awesome free software projects without the userbase they deserve, so we spent a few hours putting together a kickstart guide for people who want to get into Clutter in the minimum time.

"Intel has been kind enough to donate some cash towards TuxRadar to help keep us off the streets, hence the temporary Moblin adverts you can see next to some of our articles. Linux Format subscribers who use our subscriber-only area will have seen that our next cover feature is devoted to mobile Linux, and from the following issue we're going to be running a tutorial series on Python programming for Moblin.

"We had been planning both of those for a while, but, with Intel being so nice and all, we figured we should put together a special primer for those folks looking to try some Moblin technology without waiting to read our upcoming issues.

"As you may know, one of the really interesting bits of Moblin is Clutter, Intel's graphics library that is used extensively for front-end things such as the Moblin and Ubuntu Netbook Remix user interfaces. Clutter is easy to learn, easy to use, and quite fun, too. If you've never had the time to try it before, relax: we're going to show you the no-hassle way to get into Clutter coding. And if you want to know more, you could always click the Moblin advert - there's a lot of other material to read if you know where to look."
