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.
Mousing around on my laptop is quite tiring, so I've been running the wmii tiling window manager on with the wmiirc-lua replacement event loop instead of Gnome for a few weeks now. I used powertop to measure the wmii's effect on my power usage, and wicd to replace the Gnome-centric NetworkManager application.
UPDATE: Code for this project is now on github and patches are being accepted!
