- use OpenOffice to process documents? (26.03.05) — Our main idea was that Keeper supposes a working OpenOffice
installation which it can use via the Python-UNO bridge to
get searchable full-text, meta-data, and last but not least a
platform-independent PDF preview. more
- another article about non-ascii console (18.03.05) — Python and Unicode explains with other words what I found on
10.03.2005 in Python Unicode Tutorial. But only the
latter had the code snippet that helped me.
- indexed Full-Text search (28.02.05) — I had a glance at David Mertz's article
Developing a Full-Text Indexer in Python.
His indexer.py will be at least interesting for Keeper.
- EasyGUI another concurrent for lino.forms (24.02.05) — Aha, there is another concurrent for lino.forms:
«EasyGUI is different from other GUIs in that EasyGUI is NOT
event-driven. It allows you to program in a traditional linear fashion,
and to put up dialogs for simple input and output when you need to. If
you have not yet learned the event-driven paradigm for GUI programming,
EasyGUI will allow you to be productive with very basic tasks
immediately. Later, if you wish to make the transition to an
event-driven GUI paradigm, you can do so with a more powerful GUI
package such as anygui, PythonCard, Tkinter, wxPython, etc.»
- discovered DirsSync (17.02.05) — I discovered and tried DirsSync by Vincent Delft.
Seems really great, and I'll consider whether this can replace
- More about copyright notices (14.01.05) — I found an article «General information about copyrights» where
they speak concretely about the copyright notices. more
