Michael T Questions
  • ruby and python interoperation
  • One option is to call "python script.py ...args" from the ruby server, needs python + libs + code installed on every server
  • Could call into python flask app from ruby via HTTP
  • The last option would be to write a row in the db and have a python script check for requests in there.
  • Mick in the corner
... is using a laptop with no battery, so can't move far from a power socket, he's not shunning the group :) (He's also looking at moving python.ie onto a new server.)

  • Calendaring app
  • Learning python the hard way
  • Random Notes
  • When creating a python package don't forget the __init__.py file
  • When creating a module.py file be careful about naming it the same thing you are trying to import, it'll probably either blow up or act weird (e.g. calling it requests.py and then doing "import requests" inside it).
