I'm looking to try and develop some simple indicators, for numlock/capslock and brigthness, etc. How would I go about creating indicators in python? Are there any tutorials that walk me through writing my first appindicator (like for apps in quickly)? Any easy solutions for starting like quickly templates?
You can find the page for writing app indicators here:
On that page you'll find links to examples in Python and the API documentation. The ubuntu-application template in Quickly should have examples on using appindicators. Good luck!
