Another one on wxPython

Tuesday, August 23, 2005

I've made a python class ( wxpython ) to dump the contents of a wx.Grid or wx.ListCtrl to an excel file.

The class and a demo app is available at

The messages of the class and the demo app are in spanish.

Swatch and sendxmpp to rescue!

In these days there are lots of kids using hacking tools that try to log in via ssh.

My servers are attacked every day in this way.

I decided to add swatch to monitor log files.

Also I installed sendxmpp to send xmpp messages ( jabber ) to my jabber server.

The combination is great!

Both tools, swatch and sendxmpp are written in Perl, and to be installed depend on other perl modules which are properly installed via cpan.

wxPython , the marriage of wxWidgets and Python , is a very good option to develop multiplatform GUI apps.

Windows installation is a matter of running and exe, and follow the wizard.

For Mac OS X is a little bit trickier.

And for Linux , depends on the distro. For fedora core 3 or 4 is about compiling RPM source files and then installing the resulting binary RPM files.
