The Sailfish OS SDK update 1807 has been released. This update has the latest build environment, which matches the Jolla Release 2.2.1 (Nurmonjoki). It also contains an updated Qt Creator, and a bunch of usability and bug fixes. Find out more about these features and the release content from the release notes.

If you have an older beta release of the SDK, you should see an update notification in the Sailfish OS IDE. View more information in the SDK wiki page and also check out the known issues page.

Happy hacking!

@cy8aer Is the source code of your project available somewhere? If not, a small example would be appreciated. (Please consider converting your comments to a separate question or at least an answer.)

I have noticed a new entry inside the 'Devices' options: I mean Tools --> Options --> Devices called Android :).

Was this option there before or may it be related to the upcoming Android upgrade for SFOS 3?

@Pasko Unfortunately this is a regression introduced with Qt Creator upgrade - the Android plugin should be still disabled in our fork of Qt Creator.

import QtQuick 2.0
import Sailfish.Silica 1.0
import io.thp.pyotherside 1.4

Python {
    id: archivehandler

    signal createArchiveList(var data)

    Component.onCompleted: {
        setHandler("createArchiveList", createArchiveList)

        importModule('ArchiveHandler', function () {
            console.log('ArchiveHandler is now imported')

    function getArchiveEntries() {
        call("ArchiveHandler.archivehandler.getarchiveposts", function() {});

This is straitforward code like in

In the Editor the Python line is declared as "an unkknown component (M300)"

This is a false positive error. Please ignore it.

Sorry about the not existing code yet: I am just in the last steps before publishing both source and package. But for understanding some snippets.

I have defined a Singleton class in python (like e. g. described here: Method 3A - python3 part)

class Singleton(type):
    _instances = {}

    def __call__(cls, *args, **kwargs):
        if cls not in cls._instances:
            cls._instances[cls] = super(Singleton, cls).__call__(*args, **kwargs)
        return cls._instances[cls]

And then a Singleton member class is defined like this (it is a factory for an Archive class defined somewhere else, uses another Factory class):

class ArchiveFactory(metaclass=Singleton):
    Factory  which creates an Archive if it does not exist or gets the pickle
    otherwise if returns the Singleton

    def __init__(self, progname=('podqast')):

        self.archive = None

    def get_archive(self):
        Get the Archive

        if not self.archive:
            self.archive = Factory().get_store().get(archivename)
            if not self.archive:
                self.archive = Archive()
                self.have_archive = True
                return self.archive

        return self.archive

When packaging the python code is compiled to pyc files. And in this step I get a error message with 1807:

Compiling /home/deploy/installroot/usr/share/harbour-podqast/python/podcast/ ...
  File "/usr/share/harbour-podqast/python/podcast/", line 66
    class ArchiveFactory(metaclass=Singleton):
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

But this is no syntax error in python3.

cy8aer try if adding %global __python %{__python3} on top of your .spec file helps.

martyone ( 2018-09-21 08:51:43 +0200 )edit

@maryone: yes this option does the trick:

+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-python-bytecompile /usr/bin/python3

is done instead of

+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-python-bytecompile /usr/bin/python

without. Is there a possibility to get it in the .yaml?

The SDK is missing SSH keys and cannot connect virtual machines. Directory SailfishOS/vmshare/ssh/ was missing and SailfishOS/emulator/1/ssh/ was empty.

Copied key directories from the SDK version 1804 and authorized keys in Tools / Options / Sailfish OS / Build Engine. Seems to help.

Tested with in OpenSuse Leap 15.

@syrja could you please install it again, passing --verbose to the installer, and paste content of the InstallationLog.txtfile found in the root of the installation directory?

martyone ( 2018-09-20 22:25:23 +0200 )edit

Ok. here it comes:

syrja ( 2018-09-20 22:47:13 +0200 )edit

Just noticed that I used installation directory /home/mikko/Code/SailfishOS, but it generated ssh keys to default directory /home/mikko/SailfishOS.

Ok I just figured out what caused the issue described below:

My project folder 'SFOS Apps' contains a space character and this seems to cause issues in the latest SDK version. Renaming my project folder to e.g. 'SFOS_Apps' fixed this issue. :)

After updating to this version I am unable to deploy to my devices with the option 'Deploy as RPM Package'. Only the option 'Deploy By Copying Binaries' is working.

I already did a fresh reinstallation but this did not solve the issue. Has anyone an idea how to solve this issue?

While trying to deploy with 'Deploy as RPM Package' I am getting the following output:

In the output you pasted the path with space still figures.
