PyCon: Case Study of Python Application Development--Humanized Enso

Case Study of Python Application Development--Humanized Enso

Humanized Enso isn't a normal application. It's more like Quicksilver on the Mac. It's open source.

They used lots of unit tests, Buildbot, and design by contract.

It's a desktop application.

When Python exceptions occur, they get mailed to a support address.

They used SCons and liked it. However, the speaker admitted that he didn't understand make.

The speaker is "young", but he's friendly and easy to understand.

Pycairo is a cross-platform GUI library.

They used py2exe + NSIS to make a Windows installer.
