Re: Question about development languages



I've used Python and PyGTK to build some personal little widgets and stuff, just to learn more about the language(s). But, I've never used Glade to interface with Python. Anyone know of a good resource to learn that? I haven't been able to find any Glade/Python tutorials out there with google. I read through some of the source for redhat-configure-packages, but I have a hard time learning by reading other people's code, I'm better with some kind of a reference. I'd also like to get involved with them more in this project. I read about a cron/at scheduler idea going around. Is that still out there? Let me know!! I'd love to "get my feet wet"!!! : )

For more complicated GUIs, Glade can help you build the interfaces.  For
simpler UIs, I do them by hand.  But for programs like
redhat-config-kickstart which have tons of widgets, Glade really saves a
lot of time.  Creating all that widget code by hand would have been
tedious and would have really increased the line count.

I feel that Python has a great deal of untapped potential.  Wrapping a
decent IDE around Python and using something like Glade for the UI
builder would give us an open source equivalent to Visual Basic.  It
would provide a rapid application development environment for Windows
developers looking to migrate to Linux.  

Maybe Eclipse has something for Python; I'll have to check.


Cheers,
