Earlier today I've released guacamole 0.8. Guacamole is a new library for writing command line applications. It's been in undercover weekend development for some weeks now (and has gone through many iterations).

Guacamole is an offspring of the plainbox codebase but it has only spiritual connections at this point. It's modular, much cleaner and supports Python 2.7 and 3.2+. The key concept behind modularity is that of Ingredients. Ingredients are a plug-in or add-on system similar to Django middleware. Guacamole comes with a few ingredients and recipes for making simple applications.

I have a few more ingredients in the works, just catch-up work for feature parity with the plainbox counterparts. The big things come after that.

I want to add support for guacamole telemetry. That is, collect and send anonymous application statistics to a central server. Those statistics can include platform information, application start-up time, crash reports and more. Obviously all of this is under the control of application author and users alike.

One last thing I'm aiming at is cross-platform portability. Guacamole is written in pure python and works on Windows and OS X. There are several ingredients that will understand platform-specific features so that app developers don't have to worry about that.

If you are writing command line applications have a look at Guacamole. It's a new kid on the block, not as mature as other systems (e.g. click) but I think the architecture is right and I'm keen on improving it to fit my needs. You can also make it fit yours. You can create your own private ingredients or you can contribute a new ingredient back to the core.

Enjoy!

""" The p.c. style of politics has one serious, possibly fatal drawback: It is exhausting. Claims of victimhood that are useful within the left-wing subculture may alienate much of America. The movement’s dour puritanism can move people to outrage, but it may prove ill suited to the hopeful mood required of mass politics. 

Nor does it bode well for the movement’s longevity that many of its allies are worn out. “It seems to me now that the public face of social liberalism has ceased to seem positive, joyful, human, and freeing,” confessed the progressive writer Freddie deBoer. “There are so many ways to step on a land mine now, so many terms that have become forbidden, so many attitudes that will get you cast out if you even appear to hold them. I’m far from alone in feeling that it’s typically not worth it to engage, given the risks.” 

Goldber wrote recently about people “who feel emotionally savaged by their involvement in [online feminism] — not because of sexist trolls, but because of the slashing righteousness of other feminists.” 

Former Feministing editor Samhita Mukhopadhyay told her, “Everyone is so scared to speak right now.” That the new political correctness has bludgeoned even many of its own supporters into despondent silence is a triumph, but one of limited use. """

+Benoit Chesneau All political, religious and economic groups have extremists, and radicals.
Using the extremists, and radicals to suggest a political viewpoint as invalid and/or irrelevant/ dangerous is political strategy, not constructive criticism.
A balanced opinion acknowledges that both conservatives and liberals have some good points, and valid arguments to think about.

A Levallois-Perret 50 caméras scrutent en permanence la voie publique. Retrouveront-elles Samba et Géraldine déguisés en Pom-Pom girl ? « Ah ouais, ça devrait se voir ça ! » s'esclaffe un policier. Top chrono !

I see more and more projects doing the "curl | sudo bash" method of installing something.  Not good on huge number of levels.  This is a good rant of people doing this for containers.

Yes, I know docker doesn't support signed images yet, hopefully that will happen someday...
None of these "fancy" tools still builds by a traditional make command. Every tool has to come up with their own, incomptaible, and non-portable "method of the day" of building. And since nobody is still able to compile things from scratch, everybody just downloads precompiled binaries from ...
