Feature request #4826
Add python bindings for gps library
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Yes||Resolution:||fixed|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||14670|
We need to have python bindings available for the gps part of the core libraries (on behalf of Stefan Keller). These binding will be used mainly to listen on
QgsGPSConnection::stateChanged() signals. This is more or less the follow up issue on the developer mailing list thread http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-developer/2012-January/017575.html
Therefor I created sip files for some - hopefully all - of the required gps components but as I am new to sip files it might be required that some of the pro's will check the attached files for completeness.

With this path QGIS won't compile. The error is
/usr/share/sip/PyQt4/QtCore/qlist.sip: In function 'int convertTo_QList_0111QgsGPSConnection(PyObject*, void**, int*, PyObject*)':
/usr/share/sip/PyQt4/QtCore/qlist.sip:195:18: error: cannot convert 'QList<QgsGPSConnection*>*' to 'QList<const QgsGPSConnection*>*' in assignment
