High Level Language Integration
by jmoiron on Tue 28th Sep 2004 16:42 UTC

Forgive me for this as I am somewhat of an enthusiast, but I've noticed that Python has been trying to fill the niche of "high level language integrated into Gnome/Gtk+", but the discussion is almost always about Mono or Java. There is yet to be a real 'killer app' written in PyGTK as far as I know; although almost all of Fedora's distro specific tools (like Anaconda or many of the preference dialogs) are written in it.

However, it is still rarely mentioned; is the reason for this speed or ubiquity? The gnome-python bindings and PyGTK are not part of gnome-propper yet as far as I know, but it does ship with many distributions.
