It would be great to get a screen sharing application for SailfishOS to assist software company to demo the created software - as an example.

This would require the connection to the network via wlan or bluetooth to share the image to a PC that will project the image through projector to the wall to demonstrate the software features.

Of rourse this could be done with SDK emulator, but that's still not the same thing.

Update: We could also demo our Jolla phone in LUG meet ups if we have this feature.

It would indeed be a cool feature for an application like the "Jolla PC Suite" to show the screen content within the application.

There is a working VNC server for the Jolla phone, which could be used for that purpose: https://github.com/mer-qa/mervncserver (you also need https://github.com/mer-qa/libvncserver)

It's by far not ready for end users and just the source code, so I know this answer is not satisfying.

But if there is enough interest (show it by voting up the question), then I don't see a reason why not to make it available e.g. via store or in developer mode.

Patches to make it more user friendly and more configurable (a lot is hardcoded currently) are very welcome!

EDIT: 21. Oct 2014
I wrote some readme files on how to compile it in the Sailfish OS SDK, I hope it helps:

The solution should be easy to use, basically after initial setup it should be one-touch-usable. In such case, I'd vote for this.

Any updates on this? Looking for a user friendly solution :) I should be able to handle terminal instructions...

Just noticed that this exists, and tried it. Compiling the library and the server went without any problems, as well as installing to Jolla.

However, when I try to connect to it, it bails out and kills the server:

[root@Jolla nemo]# systemctl status vnc.service

It's probably worth mentioning that mervnvserver isn't working on the latest Jolla C/Intex devices, you need to use lipstick2vnc instead:

https://github.com/mer-qa/lipstick2vnc

This lipstick2vnc thing will work on Jolla1 too so it's basically a replacement for mervnvserver. For those who don't feel like compiling this stuff themselves, I have built the necessary packages in Mer OBS:

I wrote it already in another together-thread: https://together.jolla.com/question/36501/remote-access-to-graphical-interface-waylandrdp/#post-id-43421

In short:

It exists a Plugin for QT itself that can share a normal QT-Application over RDP, so you can directly connect via MSTSC to an QT-Application.

I got it working in the emulator.

My efforts to get the QT-RDP-Plugin it working on the phone stopped at the pouint where I got conflicts with lipstick, as I can't install some needed QT-Libs besindes lipstick and I ws told that I would need to manually copy them somehow.

You can find everythign with examples and screenshots in my thread on TMO: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=92352

I think this tread must be merge with your tread for group vote.

You can also use my app SailCast to share the screen 20+ frames per second. Firefox or VLC is required on the computer side. Jolla Tablet / Jolla C is not currently supported, but I will look into those in near future (+ additionally remote controlling if possible).
