Snippets management

P: n/a
Hi there,

I've been looking for a snippet manager and found PySnippet but it
requires PyGTK. Do you know any other option that doesn't need much?

I'm sort of new to python and user interfaces seem a bit far for me
right now, that's why I thought having to install PyGTK was
unnecessary.

Would you recommend installing it anyway?

I'm on a Mac, maybe some users of Steve's Unix flavour know about a
snippets software piece? I'm looking for free/open source alternatives.

Thank you!

P.S.: I'm also new to usenet ;) and hope my english is not that bad.

I don't use one, but why not take a stab at coding one yourself.
Use Tkinter to start, its easy. well documented
gotta learn GUI somehow
if you need links to docs or help let me know

Good idea. It's not that I don't want to learn GUI, but coming from Web
related fields I'm taking it one step at a time, while learning Unix
(editors, shell, filesystem hierarchy, etc.).

All of this had been obscured by 'Apple's lifestyle'. It's been less than a
year since I realized I had so much powerful software around.

I'll start with Python documentation. If in any trouble, I'll get to you.

Cheers!

Since you are recommending tkinter, maybe you know what is the state of
cross-platform (or even single-platform) printing capabilities in Tk
these days? Last I heard, there was a plan, but it was nowhere near
complete. So I guess the OP is on a mac, so maybe you could reply about
mac printing capabilities, if you know, but I'm interesting in
cross-platform printing.

Because of that, I've started learning PyQt, which seems to be
cross-platform at least for Linux, Mac, and Windows...

[snip]

If you're looking for a snippet manager for actually *using* it (not
educational purposes or something), I'd recommend your favorite editor
and the version control system of your choice. I found DVCSes to be
rather nice for local ad-hoc repositories (particulary Git_). If you'd
like to modify your snippet system you could take a look at Mercurial or
Bazaar, both being written in Python.

I developed one in wxPython, you can see some of the features here.
http://mientki.ruhosting.nl/data_www...de_editor.html

Although it's part of a larger part it can be used standalone,
but then it requires two actions copy and paste.
Started from a python application you can do copy+paste with just one
action.
It has integrated a full blown scintilla editor,
with syntax highlighting, code completion, and syntax checker.

If there's interest, I can distribute the files as a separate package.

cheers,

Wicked!
I'm going to check it out Stef.

Is the source available? It's all about learning for me right now.

I've to extract the right libs from the larger program,
as I'm in an import crisis right now,
it may take a couple of days.
If it's not here by the end of next week,
mail be directly, because I forget a lot :-)

Stef

Actually I use Mac OS and Free BSD but I'll check it out mate.
Thanks for the tip!!

Take your time mate. Thank you in advance.
In the meantime. I'm going to check BasKet as Ricardo recommended.
I'm also starting some sketches to make my own, ala Python. I don't
know how much will it take me but if anyone is interested I can send
you a message as soon as I've got something working.

Cheers,
