Hi Developers, or anyone just interested in Sailfish,
I figured that before the mods create a Sailfish App Development thread, we could post our successes, guides and tips here. I find Sailfish a wonderful platform to develop on so far

For starters, here's the beginner's guide to Sailfish app development:
Quote:

What you need:
- Anything capable of Running code, the only OS the Sailfish IDE isn't compatible with is OS/2 and DOS
- The sailfish IDE, https://sailfishos.org/develop.html
- Virtualbox (just have it installed, the IDE will do its thing)
- Some programming knowledge is necessary, if you don't know QML, don't be too scared to dive in and learn things on the go, that's what I'm doing, you'll find Sailfish Silica (Sailfish "API") very simple and logical

If there's anything that needs to be added, tell me. Please share any ideas you come up with and especially any good beginner guides.

Yep, it's really simple and everything sets up automatically, you just fire up the IDE and code.
