This looks like it could be fun. I’ve built a few Android apps using Cordova and I enjoyed the process. Of course, I’ll need to get hold of a device, before I can have a play with this and I’m still considering purchasing a Meizu MX6 when they’re released.

Recently, I’ve been playing around with building some little Python GTK+ applications on Ubuntu. It’s lots of fun and a welcome break from my normal PHP work. I’ve not done any real Python development since I ended my CrunchBang project, so I’m somewhat rusty. Finding good documentation to help me develop my applications has been a bit hit and miss. I guess this is mostly due to my own ignorance on the subject (not knowing what to search for), but also because there is a lot of old GTK+ 2 documentation around, which Google insists on returning results for. Grr.
If there was one reference point I wished I had known about before I started, it would have been the PyGObject (aka PyGI) page on the GNOME wiki. It has a Documentation section that contains links to the resources that I’ve painstakingly found myself over the last few days. Doh.
The documentation that I’ve found most helpful is:
- Python GObject Introspection API Reference
- The Python GTK+ 3 Tutorial
- GNOME Platform Demos in Python
Anyhow, this post is mostly a note-to-self, but hopefully it might save others from wasting time searching with Google.
It fails randomly.
It breaks in strange places.
It has regression bugs.
And no one wants to change it (for fear that it will become their code!).
Welcome to my life. But seriously, a good article with solid advice for avoiding the above.
