Shrubbery and such-like (Tree controls developing apace)


Webui uses a modified, chaining-friendly version of Zope3's page templates. It's very easy to create recursive templates, as the templates can readily call any registered view for any object to which they have access. The tree control is such a recursive template. It does a little work up-front to see how many children ...

Growing trees... (Webui gets new controls today)


Client wants the UI to have an overview page, so looks like I'll be creating a tree+grid control to display all of the branches of the system with summaries of their current status. Doesn't look too terribly hard, so I'm expecting it to be a royal PITA :) .

Yesterday was useful, but ...

Metaclass presentation & code online (Well, presentation was always there, but the code is just up now)


I've just uploaded the final metaclass presentation and the code samples for it to my website. The code samples are very low-level and readily followed (I hope), they just show where you put your finger to accomplish the various effects discussed in the presentation. The presentation is the full 74 page PDF I presented ...

Age creeps in... (Should stop thinking about this around now)


Well, hitting 30 today. All-in-all it's a good life, if somewhat lonely. Too many friends lost in time. My fault, I suppose; need to work harder at it. Anyway, for now, get today's work done and maybe we can keep our collective heads above the miniscus.

Getting the machine back up to speed (Post-conference blahs setting in...)


Compressing focus back to the work I need to get done today is proving hard. Too many ideas and possibilities still orbiting around in my head. There seems to have been a surprisingly small amount of discussion of the conference online, or I'm just looking in the wrong places. Oh well, suppose I'll ...

PyCon wrap-up (Jiggety-jig)


Well, that was a long 5 days of basically non-stop talking (in other words, I loved it). The metaclass presentation seemed to go fairly well, though I'm told that my rather self-deprecating presentation style distracted at least one audience member. Most feedback seemed to be of the "that clarified it for me" vein.

Togl rises from the grave yet again (I should really stop fixing the darn thing)


Well, spent most of the evening on PyOpenGL and TTFQuery, with some cleanup work in OpenGLContext as well. New release of TTFQuery that works around a bug in FontTools. PyOpenGL 2.1.0 is getting closer, with the major change being compilation tweaks to try to tell the user what's wrong when the configuration ...

Back from gram's lickety split (And dinner with Shiva and Shademan)


Dinner with Shiva and Shademan was pleasant, went to see "50 First Dates", which was surprisingly funny, not particularly cerebral, but funny. Went to have lunch with grams this afternoon, snooker game was very close, 5 point spread in the end. Been trying to set up SSH-tunnelled VNC for my desktop for when I'm ...
