For those of you who might be interested in developing on Mac OS X, it looks like the only useful thing we're missing is the
py2sisapplication from the SDK which is a Windows only tool.
If you're interesting in using the Bluetooth console facility to develop directly on the phone under Mac OS X, this is fairly trivially done. First of all you need to create a serial port that the
bt_console.pyscript on the phone can connect to using the Bluetooth Serial Utility which is found in Applications > Utilities. Then you need to run a terminal emulation program on you Mac to monitor your newly created port, I'm using ZTerm to do that. Then just run the
bt_console.pyscript on your phone as normal.
Update: I've now got
xmllibrpc.pyand PyBlogger working under Python for Series 60. Wasn't particulaarly hard to do either, which suprised me...
Update: A version of Perl for Symbian/Series 60 has now been released...
