In the beginning
Well, I have been wanting to have a weblog for a while, specially since I got a permanent Internet connection at home.
After reviewing some of the freely available tools, PyCS/PyDS really look like the best combination. They are simple, yet powerful. I could even set a personal server to try stuff, and there's free space at pycs.net. What else could I ask for?
Even further, I think the structure and APIs are nice, so I may try hacking a quickie Qt app for it, since I also want to try the PyQt bindings and the eric3 IDE...
Oh, yeah. Time to do a happy dance ;-)
If you try to do a Qt app, you can connect to your PyDS instance with XML/RPC.
Almost all API calls of tools are available via XML/RPC, the only restriction is that calls can't have an '_' in them (that's an intentional restriction, so you have a way in tools to say "this call is private, don't touch it).
If you start writing your tool and some APIs are missing, drop me a line.
Hey, cool. You know, this could go both ways, since KDE can be controlled through XML/RPC (but in a much later stage of course :-)
