After beginning work yesterday, I believe that there is the raw material for an useful Twitter client in this application (OS X 10.5 required), although there is certainly a good bit of cruft remaining as well. Give Kappa a whirl and let me know how it goes.
Well, I've gone and moved to New Jersey. It's a bit different from North Carolina, Kentucky, and Japan, but not the end of the world. Some people might even say its quite nice. Other than people who use their horns. That's just unnecessary.
For the past few days I have been working out this project in my head, and I finally sat down this morning to finish the implementation. django_monetize is a pluggable Django application for easily using a diverse array of monetization techniques in your Django project, and also for targeting different ads/monetization options based on the viewer and page content.
A look at improving the standard search-as-you-type search field for non-instant searches, which in naive implementations can create a lagged or sticky feel to your user interface.
This brief final segment of the Epic PyObjC tutorial series looks at a few statistics from the series, and also I recommend a few resources for moving forward.
In this fourth segment of the Epic PyObjC tutorial we take a look at implementing drag and drop in two different ways, as well as using multiple nibs in one application. This is the final segment of Epic PyObjC that focuses on this project; the fifth one will be a collection of resources about continuing with Cocoa and PyObjC.
In this third segment of the Epic Introduction to PyObjC and Cocoa we spend some time in the standard application development workflow of iterating new idea from concept into feature. First, we have double clicking an entry open its page on FreeBase.com, then add disk based caching of results, and we end by adding an indicator to reassure users that the app hasn't frozen while retrieving data from Metaweb.
This is the second segment of the Epic Introduction to PyObjC tutorial series. This time we're looking at integrating the simple metaweb.py library into our project, as well as using Cocoa Bindings and an NSArrayController to make setting up an NSTableView as easy as possible.
PyObjC is one of the most helpful projects I have ever used, but a number of individuals have been having trouble getting started with PyObjC on Leopard because the documentation is in a bit of a disarray. In particular, there didn't seem to be a comprehensive tutorial that could introduce a newcomer to all the important aspects of PyobjC, and that was completely up to date. Here is my attempt to fill that void. With a vengeance.
Applications may thrive on data, but programmers only thrive on data that is coherently organized. For Cocoa applications, user specific data is stored in an application specific subfolder of the '~Library/Application Support/' folder. Here is a quick look at the code necessary to calculate that Path in PyObjC.
