Pygick

I wanted to find out how quick PythonCard is, to learn and use. Answer - it is the quickest to make GUIs! Then I thought about what kind of application I can write. Making a easy to use batch image processor seemed like a good idea. I vaguely remember seeing an application like this - so whatever I could remember from that applications' GUI as a base, made an application. I used PythonMagick, a library for ImageMagick functions.

PyObjC is interesting, but not relevant to me

I don't expect I'll be using PyObjC much myself because I'm committed to writing cross-platform applications. That is why I'm using Python, wxPython and PythonCard to write apps that run on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. I don't know Objective-C and I really don't have any interest in learning a single OS API such as Cocoa anymore than I want to invest a lot of time in .NET that only works with Windows.

Yes, .NET may someday run on the Mac, but I'll bet it won't ever work on Linux. I think the Mono project is deluding itself if it thinks that someday it won't get crushed by the MS lawyers, so that isn't an option for .NET compatibility. I'll be very pleased if Mono does succeed, but I won't consider investing time even looking at C# and .NET for a couple of years. I'm very happy with Python and libs for Python.

I've changed my primary operating system many times in the past and I expect that I will again, so cross-platform, open source languages and libraries are the thing for me. In fact, all of the PythonCard code that I've written in the last year and half is now working on my G4 tower.

New Sample Pages

There are new pages on the PythonCard web site showing off the samples included with PythonCard. Some of the samples (gadflyDatabase, life, simpleIEBrowser, spirograph) are not in release 0.6.9, but you can get them from cvs.

There is a wiki page describing how to install and use cvs. If you want to keep up with changes between releases, you should definitely use the cvs version of PythonCard as releases are only made every one to three months. A complete list of changes since the last release is available in the changelog.

case-insensitive sort of list of strings

I added a new recipe to the Python Cookbook.

There are some additional comments about the recipe on the PythonCard-users mailing list.
