Turns out Straw's Makefile is a bit broken at the moment (version 0.2) — it installs the library directory into /usr/local/lib, which isn't in the default Python search path. You should either adjust $PYTHONPATH or move the directory to /usr/local/lib/python2.2/site-packages or somewhere else really along sys.path.

OK, what is it?

John Wiseman is doing it. Cristophe Rhodes hypes it. And Dan Barlow.

So what is it about CLIM, suddenly? I thought it was one of those LISPy dinosaur skeletons left behind on the tapes of time, for archaeologists (wow, got that right on the first try) to discover?

And another

Another release of Straw, with support for image loading.


The first version of Straw with the confidence-inspiring version number 0.1 has been released.

Summary: blog reading for the GNOME 2 desktop.

Why oh why

Why doesn't SAX2 provide a way to access the XML declaration when the encoding information is hidden in its attributes and handling foreign documents without knowing their encoding is sometimes impossible? Great to have an API and then having to work around it. It's not as if it was difficult for the bloody parsers to generate those events, if its considered unclean or something to do it as a processing instruction event, why not a declaration event? Reported to a different object if it makes things any better?

And why isn't GtkHTML2 documented at all?
