Re: Exchange window positioning

I've yet to see one that didn't simply replicate options readily available elsewhere - in the window gadgets, in the menu etc.. Real waste of space.

Amiga OS4 noob - what to install first?

Recently acquired a Sam 460ex to use as my main Amiga going forwards. Wondering what I should install first to get to latest good baseline OS4.1 install? This being my first OS4 machine. It has 4.1FE Update 1 on it. I guess I should install: - EUAE - RuninUAE - AmiSSL latest version - a web browser?...

Re: Updated Python3.x series

Thanks for the link. Andy Broad again! Wow that guy is prolific. Didn't he make AWNPipe in the first place? Maybe I'm confusing him with someone else. My own idea for Python GUI was to port wxwidgets to run over reaction and then port wxpython. But that was in 2005 and I don't even know if wxpython ...

Re: Updated Python3.x series

I haven't come across ProAction. Link please? I had a similar notion to use AWNPipe.

Jamie, back in the day I had plans to port SWIG so that we could automatically make python wrappers for C APIs.

Re: Updated Python3.x series

Hi again, I hope you got my email earlier today. My first question is, where can one get the existing OS4 Amiga Python sources? As I mentioned, the Frieden's denied my request to collaborate many years ago. Regarding GUI, my own ideas, in 2005, where to (a) use AWNPipe, which is awesome or (b) port ...

Re: Any hope for a Wayfarer browser port for OS 4?

My point regarding the online versions of applications is that, you're never ever going to get native Amiga ports of those. AmiCygnix and ports of Linux equivalents is one option. But the other option - and the one that would mean Amiga remains viable as a hobby platform for years to come - would be...

Re: Any hope for a Wayfarer browser port for OS 4?

Whilst theoretically it's a good idea to 'engine-ize' the webview, the DataTypes system is not really sophisticated enough. There is already a proof of concept html datatype which can render them as rich text, but of course it dates from before CSS, HTML5 etc. The datatypes system itself would need ...

Re: Updated Python3.x series

Hi thanks for the summary. Well, I recall that Python 2 is extremely portable, I even got it running on Symbian OS back in the day, and I wasn't given the negativity about porting it to amiga from the core developers back then either, indeed I was encouraged to make it officially supported, but that...
