Urwid Lightning Talk Slides (PyCon 2009)

Urwid Lightning Talk (PyCon 2009)
Posted on 2009-04-06.

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.
