Client Side: "Rich Internet Applications" in Python?


Pythonagons,

I am considering using (building) a client-side application, rather than a browser, for an Internet application. I am aware there are a few resourcesout there like XUL and various Java clients or classes to build one with.

Has anyone developed a frame work for this sort of thing in Python? I am looking at the Windows platform initially, but of course would like to have portability. I have not built something like this before (in any language), so I have only a vague idea of how to structure it, but I think I could be most productive working in Python.

My initial requirements may not be too demanding, but it seems like it would be a nice set of modules to have in one's toolbox.

Any suggestions?

If you were looking at Java-oriented things, you might check out Jython.

I'm not sure exactly what you want to do - write a program or design The
Great Unified Framework, but I'd like to plug the old-fashioned approach: to
design a text-based protocol (a la SMTP, NNTP, HTTP ...) for your specific
application and implement that. That way there are no dependencies, not
even to Python.

Eric Raymond has a few things to say on the subject, in and around
<http://www.catb.org/~esr/writings/taoup/html/ch05s04.html>.

Hi, I'm trying to clear the TIF on Windows XP programmatically with the below code. This code works fine on any folder but the TIF. For some reason the atEnd() statements always defaults to true and no files are deleted in the folder. The peculiarity of this issue is that the files/subfolders cannot be seen through the windows explorer either. I can only access/delete them through a command shell. Any ideas?

Hi, When i do a "db2 list applications", i get the required applications with their ip addresses. However, some of the application Ids are ip addresses while some application Ids are arbitrary(like GA500A2B.K105.014AC7050331) and of the form "GA500%'. Can somebody explain what are these indifferent application ids?

I have 3 Access versions (2000, 2002, 2003) on an XP machine. I'm using Access 2000 for some development which will include use of the Microsoft Internet Browser control. However, when attempting to select that control from the "More Controls" list, I don't see "Microsoft Internet Browser". Does anyone know the actual filename of this control, and how I might have lost it, and how I might reinstall it? Thanks prm928

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
