PyCon: Lightning Talks

Qtile is a tiling window manager written in Python. It's an alternative to Awesome.

In Tunesia, they were using flame throwers against protesters.

In a "do-ocracy", you don't govern, you just do.

PyParsing and SPARK are good parsing libraries.

Resolver is a Python-powered spreadsheet that works on Windows.

Dirigible is the same thing as Resolver, but it runs as a web application.

Look at Shaveet,it is the comet server we built in binfire.com using gevent.
It is simpler than hookbox,and lacks the admin that hookbox has.

Thanks for telling me about Shaveet. I do like Gevent.

Yes, the QTile talk was indeed pretty awesome--partially because it was really funny :)

SPARK? It's been a while since I've come across I project which uses that. I consider PLY to be the successor to SPARK.

Thanks for the correction. I've used PLY, and it worked well for me.
