Simple network presence announcement and discovery

I’ve just created a Google Code project called netpresence to host my very simple Python module for network presence announcement and discovery. Projects that need server/service discovery, similar to SSDP or SLP, are very good candidates to use it. In my case, I only need to know when other Linux boxes are running dynamically created Pyro daemons for some distributed work. By the way, netpresence is GPL.


pyphantom 0.1.2 is finally out

It took more time than expected, but it has been worth it. pyphantom 0.1.2 is finally out with much more improvements than previously planned. Go here and grab yourself a copy.

pyphantom under Mac OS

Finally pyphantom is running under Mac OS X! pyphantom actually needed gnome-python-desktop from MacPorts for the gtksourceview bindings and not gnome-python-extras as noted here. Instructions should come later on. By the way, this is a screenshot from the upcoming 0.1.2 version.

libgnomekbd 2.28.2 and MacPorts

As I had reported earlier, building libgnomekbd 2.18.2 under MacPorts was broken. I’ve just fixed that by adding two lines of code to /opt/local/include/glib-2.0/glib/gi18n.h. The diff is quite simple:

pyphantom under Windows

Finally we were able to get pyphantom running under Windows. This is not yet finalized as some hacks were necessary, but at least we can see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Not quite there yet

As you might have noticed we are yet to release pyphantom 0.1.2. The latest features are being polished and some new things are under development.

Where is pyphantom 0.1.2?

Well, it didn’t come out this Saturday, but we are working to have it next week.
