Code snippet demonstrating use of the Share UI Interface on Meego Harmattan from a Pyside application.This allows to open the "Share" interface from your own application.

Code Snippet

import dbus
import urllib
bus = dbus.SessionBus()
# Get the Dbus ShareUI object
shareService = bus.get_object('', '/')
# Get the share method from the Dbus interface so it can be called later
share = shareService.get_dbus_method('share', '')
# Create the item you'd like to share, making sure strings are URLencoded
description = urllib.quote('Support for Nokia Developers')
title = urllib.quote('Nokia developer')
link = urllib.quote('')
item = 'data:text/x-url;description=%s;title=%s,%s' %(description, title, link)
# Place all the items in a list, and call the share method on the Dbus object
