Preview of PyObjC 2.0

While it appears that PyObjC development has stagnated, nothing could be further from the truth.

Ronald posted a very nice overview of the tasty goodness in PyObjC 2.0. He has been very very busy.

Yes, it fully leverages the metadata generated by the BridgeSupport project. Via BridgeSupport, PyObjC — and RubyCocoa, and anything else leveraging BridgeSupport — has enough metadata to bridge to just about any C or Objective-C API. The goal of BridgeSupport is to provide a machine readable description of system APIs with full fidelity; something that the Objective-C runtime metadata does not provide (including, for example, information about straight C functions).

Ronald: Thank you. 12 years is a long time for any open source project to remain active and the last year, largely through Ronald’s contributions, has proven to be one of the most vibrant years of development in the project’s history!

    Hi.

    I am somewhat new to python and have been trying to work with some guis. I used wxPython for a while, but now I am working with Xcode and Interface builder 3.0 which use pyobjc.

    I have gotten a few apps written, but what I really am trying to find is a graphing framework (or something) that will allow me to draw graphs using only python and interface builder (I don’t have time at the moment to learn pyobjc).

    I have searched for days, but I think that I am on the wrong track. Have you ever made a plot or graph using only python and interface builder?

    thanks for any tips!
