Hello Cruel World at GoogleCodes

I’ve just created my first google code project. The name, “hellocruelworld” says everything. It’s just a bunch of hello worlds examples, sorry google for using our services as sandbox. You can “check out” those samples with following command-line.

svn co http://hellocruelworld.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ hellocruelworld

I created and fixed some issues as well as edited the wiki stuff just to take look arround and I really enjoy. Anyway, you can also access source code from web. But, I agree with you, isn’t so good as trac!

Learning with videos on internet

I still remember when in 1995 I used to go to university to get some .txt and .html files, mostly zines, on internet to read for some months. Now we have connection everywhere. I was looking for some way to deploy a python application when I found ShowMeDo website. I’m talking about video tutorials. It look like a new trend on tutorials over the internet, make a quick search at google videos for tutorial and you’ll see. I do think screencasts, digital recording of a computer screen, like those of ruby on rails are pretty cool. Well, not talking about video anymore but still about knowledge other interesting website is SlideShare. As bandwidth grows and mobile device becomes available, and that’s a strong tendency, we experience other ways to share knowledge. What will be new?

WordPress: include code

I’ve been putting some code, in a dirty way, just in the middle of my posts. I decide to learn a little bit more about wordpress and get things done properly. A small ruby code with indentation as sample.

#!/usr/bin/ruby
if ARGV.length == 0
    puts "no argv"
end

After trying <code>, <blockquote> and <pre> directives I think the best result was achieved using <pre> with <code>, just like the sample above. See the code bellow.

<pre><code>
#!/usr/bin/ruby
if ARGV.length == 0
puts “no argv”
end
</code></pre>

Anyone has a better solution for that? More details here.

WordPress: include presentation

I was wondering if wordpress has some feature to show presentations in ppt, odp or pdf formats inside de blog. I haven’t found anything and worse, I didn’t succeed to upload an odp file despite of succefully upload a ppt file. I received the message “File type does not meet security guidelines. Try another.” After a while I reach the faq, but I still don’t know how to change that nonsense “security guidlines” policy. Anyone got a tip?

Plotting with MatPlotLib, PyGTK and Glade

The matplotlib is a plotting library for python which uses a syntax based on matlab. It is quite powerful: there are a large sets of 2D and 3D graphs available, it suports most of windowing toolkits (GTK, Tkinter, Qt, and wxWindows) for embedded GUI applications as well as interfacing with the python shell (see IPython).

See other python plotting solutions and compare.

Bellow we describe an example of embedded PyGTK with Glade application that uses matplotlib. It just draws a barchart graph. The code is based on the matplotlib examples, serpia pygtk tutorial and matplotlib cookbook.
