Hildon UI elements in QML

I've been playing with PySide and QML this week (more on that soon), but here's something that might be interesting to the Maemo community: Using the native Hildon look and feel of Maemo 5 in QML.
This QML demo uses the current theme graphics of Hildon and provides QML components that can be used just like their Hildon counterparts, but inside QML UIs. This is not a complete library, just a test of what could be possible in case anyone wants to step up and create and maintain a Hildon library of QML components. Here's a video:
The code for this demo is on Github - you can try it out on your N900 using qmlviewer.

wow that looks really cool :)

do you consider making something bigger out of it? I'm thinking of Qt Quick components (qt labs project)
Imho this would be the best way to ensure that Maemo lives on - as the preferred way for new Meego apps is using Qml and Qt Quick components - those could then be easily run/ported onto maemo and look native using your Qt Quick components.

Great work nonetheless :)

You could try to integrate this as a separate style into Qt Quick components. However, we won't have any bandwidth to maintain this - so someone needs to step up..
