Recently I've stumbled on a nice tool that I really quite like, so I thought I'd share it: Personally, I love the power behind PHP. I find it a very simple to use yet possesses the techniques seen in the more complex desktop applications such as Perl/Python/C/C++/C# etc. PHP has always been restricted to server-side web applications, and unlike the others, cannot run as a desktop application – until now. I would like to share an awesome tool I’ve been using recently… [PHP Nightrain](http://www.naetech.com/php-nightrain) is a cool bit of kit: it fully supports popular frameworks such as Laravel and CakePHP, …

Hello, I am wondering how libraries create graphics contexts in a cross-platform manner. Somehow libraries like SDL create graphical windows seemingly without using the system headers. I know how to set up a window for graphics using Win32API, and how to get input from it using the same. How do I write a program such that it can be executed on any system (linux in particular) without requiring a windows environment? Or would I have to create two versions of my program, one for windows and one for linux?

Hello. I have been looking long and hard for an image library that meets these criteria that I have for pretty much any library I will use (with some obvious exceptions): A) Cross-Platform (If at all possible) B) Weightless (or nearly weightless) C) Stand-alone (I hate having to include DLLs in my projects, SLLs are fine though) D) Relatively Simple E) Standards complient (If there are standards for image loading?) F) Long-lasting (I hate when I have code that I have to re-write tons of code because a library I used ceases to be supported. [Of course I use modularization …

This is similar to earlier posts in DaniWeb by vegaseat, but it demonstrates getkey with withdrawn tkinter, restart inside object by re-calling it's __init__ method.

Hi all, I'm trying to learn python. So far I've managed to get some usefull scripting done to automated some tedious jobs. Now I have an itch I'd like to scratch writing and app in python. I do however want a unified look and feel across Mac, Windows and Linux (I use daily at least Mac and Linux) I'm trying to achieve a look similar to say, sparrow (mac mail client), twitter for mac, hotot etc. Not really native widgets. My question is, what is the best toolkit to do this. Tutorials or pointers on how to go about this …

Hello I'm trying to create a cross platform application to control a robot. Everything went relatively easy but I got stuck when trying to set a few properties that are Mac specific. They use the 'com.apple.eawt' package which obviously isn't available on Linux or Windows. I need to set the program to use the system menu bar and the dock icon and some handlers. I know how to do this but I don't know how to tell Linux to skip the part that is Mac specific. I can check the operating system at runtime but the code won't compile on …
