I set out to create a generic class that would extend a python list by adding a "focus". The focus is an index in the list, and it will be moved if any items are added or removed before the focus in the list. It could be used to keep track of where you are in a list that is changing while you are processing it, but I wrote it as part of making my Urwid container widgets more user-friendly.
The result is a little more complicated than I imagined.
watch(1) is a very useful little tool when you want to see the results of a command changing over time.
Unfortunately it seems that it doesn't support Unicode or colours in its output. This is a short bash function that does much of what watch can do, but with no trouble handling Unicode or coloured output.
Django's forms have fields like models, but you access them in a completely different way. I've found it hard to remember the correct way to access form field data properly, so this is a summary of the things I need to do with forms and how to do them. In particular these are useful in the form's
__init__ method after calling
super() to set up the form the way you want to.
This is a video of the Django 1.1 talk I gave last night for the Ottawa Python Authors Group. We were bumped out of our reserved room so I did the talk in the pub. The timing worked out quite well, I just finished answering questions as game 6 was starting in the background.
Thank you to Andrew Ross and FOSSLC for doing the recording and setting everything up.
You will need Flash 10 to hear the audio for this presentation. If you don't like flash, please send a polite note to the ePresence people asking for them to support other formats.
Update: "we got screwed by the company we were dealing with for the software & hosting and the talk is lost" And sorry, I have no back-up either. The text from this talk is still available.
This is the text from the Django 1.1 talk I gave on Friday May 15 at Algonquin College for FOSSLC's Geocamp/Summercamp 2009.
I have tried to format this in a way that is well suited to skimming and easier to access from the web than reading the original slides. If you find this useful, please let me know.
I stood up in front of a few hundred PyCon attendees in the afternoon of March 28 to deliver a short lightning talk on Urwid. I have now posted the "slides" from that talk in the urwid-contrib repository.
The video of my talk is available on the PyCon site if you don't mind waiting for the video to load half way (I couldn't get seeking to work from here). The video quality of the presentation is poor, however, so I would suggest running it yourself it you're interested.
This is how you can get it running on your computer:
hg clone https://excess.org/hg/urwid-contrib hg clone https://excess.org/hg/urwid ln -s ../urwid/urwid urwid-contrib urwid-contrib/pycon200903.py
The slides use Urwid's new 256-colour support and palette setting features. The latter is only supported by xterm, so for the full effect be sure to run it with xterm.
I will be giving an introductory Django talk at The Free and Open Source Software Learning Centre (FOSSLC) Summercamp/Geocamp 2009 Conference. The conference is taking place on May 13, 14, and 15 at Algonquin College, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and early bird pricing is available until April 5.
