Some APIs…

Yes, this is YAPP (yet another python post) on my blog… Three in a row! Not that I’m counting…

This time is related to describe some interesting APIs available for python developers. A while ago I was making some experiments in order to develop a simple tool to upload my photos to my Picasa Web Album, and automatically also into my Experiment photoblog. Trying to use Java proved to be a pain in the ass! Now that I discovered Python, I again ready to give it a try.

After a first glance, here’s my findings:

So, I guess all I have to do is develop the GUI. The next move is try to use Glade-3 to do just that!

[UPDATE @ February 15th, 2009]

More interesting APIs available at any python installation near you:

  • urllib and urllib2 enable the developer to download almost anything from the web
  • urlparse easily decomposes any url
  • and, even csv files are easily parsed to be accessed as tables

Campinos are hard working men (from Ribatejo, Portugal) that work the cattle in the fields, also called Lezirias. My village has an annual traditional festival, in which they show the traditional ways of rounding up the cattle.

The long time since the last post doesn’t mean that the work is taking all my time… it just means that I’m on a well deserved vacations!

The first week was spent near the beach. Although the weather was usually cloudy during the morning, the afternoon always brought a very good hot sun. An excellent weather to enjoy the beach.

After the beach comes some rest, maybe interrupted with an occasional trip to an attraction nearby. I really need the rest… but, essencially it’s time for the family.


On the nightstand...
