After a ton of bug reports for TextMate, and some very constructive feedback and testing from Jesse Noller, I've decided there's no much point in waiting, so I'm happy to announce PySmell v0.7.2.

Grab it from PyPI and follow the instructions in README.markdown.

Too many cool kids do that, so I'll do it myself:

Colourful prose which captures the principle in the fixing of names to colours --- that of association.

From: "The art of looking sideways", Alan Fletcher

The rules for this meme thing are :

  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open it to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

I often exchange small snippets or links with my girlfriend, and it's been very annoying having to right click on iChat, select the correct account and start a chat. So I've automated it!

Here is a small PyObjC snippet that will allow you to send iChat messages from the command line, using the ScriptingBridge framework and a bit of elbow grease. The next step would be to make a wrapper for it so it can live a an icon on the Desktop, but I'll try that some other time.

I'm very proud to announce the release of PySmell v0.7. PySmell is an auto-completion library for Python, meant to be plugged in different editors.

The big news for this release is the support for Emacs and TextMate, on top of the already existing Vim support.

Grab PySmell from PyPI

EDIT: PySmell 0.7.1 fixes a nasty TextMate bug, so please try again if you were put off by it!

Read inside for more information!
