Posts about python (old posts, page 2)

py2html trial

In the python list­ing at the end of the ar­ti­cle, I ap­plied py2html so it would get syn­tax high­light­ing.

In mozil­la it looks ok, in Kon­queror it flows over the box.

I won­der if that's how it's sup­posed to work and it on­ly looks well in Mozil­la by ac­ci­den­t.

Why python is nice

Nice post at me­chan­i­cal­, about why python makes good pro­gram­ming eas­ier, or at least not hard­er.

Moving to SQLite

The python shelve mod­ule is too lim­it­ing for the data­base needs of KRsN, so I'm mov­ing it to SQLite and PySQLite.

While this adds an­oth­er de­pen­den­cy, it's a small one, and the cod­ing be­comes way sim­pler. So, I'm do­ing it, be­cause fight­ing against the tools is fool­ish, and shelve was not do­ing it with­out a fight :-)

KRsN now available

Sadly, not a really usable version, but I got sidetracked by PyKDE and KFTE first. KRsN really needs just a couple of days loving.

So, if you RE­AL­LY RE­AL­LY want to try it, get >PyQt for Qt 3.1 work­ing, and then head for KRsN's source­forge page, and get it via CVS

You will al­so need Strip-o-­Gram,

Flaws right now:

  • The feed list does­n't up­date right
  • It does­n't tell read from un­read
  • New items re­place old­er ones in­stead of ap­pend­ing to them
  • New feed adding is slow­er than it should
  • Some­times, it gets RE­AL busy on start­up
Please report bugs, feature requests, etc. You can even subscribe to a RSS feed about KRsN!


Well, just uploaded my hacked KDE 3.1 version of PyKDE to so it should propagate to the KDE mirrors soon.

It seems to work well, even if it does­n't ex­pose ALL the KDE 3.1 API, and it should be use­ful as a stop­gap un­til the au­thors re­lease the re­al thing.

You can see a screen­shot of it here
