Coding in Pyjamas: Apps for Desktop and the Web
Pyjamas is a port of Google's Web Toolkit to Python. Pyjamas Desktop is a port of Pyjamas to the Desktop, using Apple's Webkit as the underlying technology. The combination of these two technologies - with identical APIs and features - means that applications can be written that will run - unmodified - in both a web browser and on the desktop.
The most important feature of all the Web-based toolkits (GWT, YUI, Pyjamas) is that all of the browser quirks that you'd normally expect to have to melt your brain on are taken care of: the compiler tool automatically generates code specifically for Firefox, old Mozilla, Internet Explorer, Opera and Safari!
The strategic importance of Pyjamas cannot be underestimated, especially as code written for it looks so much like it uses pygtk2 or python-qt4, and especially as applications written with care for Pyjamas can be run unmodified under Pyjamas-Desktop.
