The Harmattan Python project provides a Python runtime environment for Nokia's N9 phone and the N950 developer device built on the MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan platform. It provides a full-featured set of packages and tools to rapidly develop and run Python applications using the PySide: Python for Qt bindings together with the Qt Quick UI definition language. Applications can be deployed as individual Debian packages, using the community OBS, or eventually, via Ovi Store.
 Getting started
The following links provide useful information for Python developers, including information about MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan Security Framework.

If you are interested just in installing applications that depend on Python you can get a lot of them using the repositories listed here. All depending packages will be automatically installed.
 API Bindings
The Harmattan Python project tries to cover as many APIs as possible. Nowadays there are bindings for the green marked modules:
In addition to the listed APIs above (provided by python-dbus, python-pyside, python-qtmobility, python-qtsparql) there are lots of packages:
python-cairo python-chardet python-conic python-content.action python-context python-crypto python-dateutil python-gconf python-gi python-gobject python-imaging python-libxml2 python-lxml python-magic python-markupsafe python-openssl python-pkg-resources python-pycurl python-pygments python-roman python-storm python-tralchemy python-twisted-web python-twisted-words python-xdg python-numpy python-beautifulsoup python-feedparser python-pygame ipython
