Creating and Consuming Web Services With PHP: Find out how to create XML-RPC, SOAP and REST web services using PHP, the most popular scripting language for web applications. [via Der Schockwellenreiter]
Here is a good place to start learning about SOAP in Python (written by Mike Olson, Scott Archer and Uche Ogbuji). There are five Parts: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5 [via Daily Python-URL]
Mark Lutz: In this article, I will chronicle some of the most common mistakes made by both new and veteran Python programmers, to help you avoid them in your own work. [via Zope Newbies>]
Valentino Volonghi: This is a fully featured RSS aggregator with parsing included. It’s scalable to very high numbers of feeds and can be used in multi-client environment through web using Twisted with a little code on top of Nevow, or can easily be integrated inside every app which uses some of the toolkits supported by […]
Alan Green works on a Twisted based weblog system (see here for Twisted). Besides Twisted he uses SQLite (and PySQLite) to store the data. In an earlier post Alan also explains the reasons for Twisted. There I found also a very interesting link to Ian Bicking’s Website Framework Shootout.
wxPython 188.8.131.52 is out. And there is also an Installer for Panther. [via schockwellenreiter]
Right now I set up this weblog to be rendered on my laptop and upstreamed to the server with normal HTML pages. This somehow put the burden of organizing the site on Tinderbox. But somehow I get interested in the idea to let the server care for the public face of my content and rather […]
“I tried out PyObj-C last night. PyObjC is a language binding/module that lets you use Python with Cocoa – somewhat like how AppleScript Studio lets you use AppleScript to write your Cocoa program.Except PyObjC makes AppleScript Studio look like Apple took the worst bits of VisualBasic, layed a verbose language on top of it, and […]
I just added support for Shockwave to the Manila embed() macro. Get it here as Stuffit or ZIP file.
I just did. And it does even support XML-RPC.
I added two handy scripts for Frontier in the “Other Scripts” section on my development page: the first script globally changes an e-mail address in all Manila sites of a GDB. The second script exports Manila news items as MySQL dump.
Tcl/Tk is now to be available for OS X Aqua. Very good. MacOS X gets more and more interesting for the old school UNIX developers. macdevcenter.com has an article by Michael J. Norton on that topic.
myphp is an extension that allows MySQL to execute PHP code that is stored in the database tables.
This is a long document explaining how to report a bug. The beef is in a bullet list at the end, but it’s worth reading anyway.
The Design By Numbers project from John Maeda seems to have a successor: Processing. »The Processing project was created to introduce a new audience to computer programming and to encourage the audience of hybrid artist/designer/programmers. It integrates a programming language, development environment, and teaching methodology into a unified structure for learning.« Unfortunatly it seesm to […]
Cocoa Dev Central: »“I’ll walk you through some of the steps I’ve gone through to develop my current project: RemoteTunes. The application, when it’s done, will allow you to control iTunes on a remote computer. For now, let’s just let it control a local copy.”« [ranchero.com]
»Flash remoting for PHP enables objects in PHP to become objects in actionscript, almost magically! AMF-PHP takes care of all the data-type conversions, serialization, and other client-server details. This provides a great way of connecting rich media clients with data and logic living on the server. While at the same time allowing designers to design […]
Does anybody know a good online language reference for AppleScript? Im mean something like DocServer from UserLand? I wanted to write a very simple AppleScript – and I completly failed. I found a lot of examples – none of which really helped much. For instance: How can I encode a string into base64 in AppleScript? […]
This seems to be a very promising example of an editable outline in Flash. Does this thing read OPML? You can even move the headings around with the mouse.
