I did a video of tichy, my python applets manager, running on openmoko :
Once again the code for tichy can be retrieved from the subversion repository with this command :
svn checkout svn://svn.projects.openmoko.org/svnroot/tichy
It works fine on a desktop computer too. Parts of the program are in C, but I always provide python versions as well, so you don't need to compile anything to test it.
It is also very easy to extend tichy by adding new plugins
[Edit]: I put a copy of the video on youtube.
