Glom already runs on Maemo (The Nokia 800 and 810 Internet Tablets), though it is only an initial port. Some more work is needed:
- Use hildon widgets such as the time and date widgets (needs modifications to hildon to allow them to be empty, though these should probably be in GTK+ anyway).
- Allow the Glom developer to specify smaller alternative layouts.
- Handle loss of network connections more gracefully, and offer a network connection (using libconic) when needed.
- Offer a simple replication system to handle:
- Updating read-only tables from the server. - Data input (and maybe modification) when the handheld does not have a network connection. We should probably avoid replication that would ever require admin intervention to resolve conflicts during replication, or at least make it very clear when that could be required.
