Awasu » Embedding Python
Monday 1st December 2014 8:27 AM [Tutorial]

Those of you who know me know that I'm a big fan of Python. It's a really powerful and flexible scripting language that sits nicely in that space between shell scripts that have gotten too big (i.e. more than 10 lines 😐 ), and large-scale applications written in C++ or Java. I remember trying to print out the manual for 1.5.2[1]IIRC, this was the iconic version of Python, much like 3.1 was for Windows for a long time. way back in the late-90's[2]Yes kids, we often used printed manuals, back in the day :-O, and I'd already been using it for a few years then, so I guess that means I've been using it for nearly 20 years now 😯

Awasu has had an embedded Python interpreter for some time, and one of the things that has been lurking in the murky depths of my to-do list for many years now is a write-up on how to actually do this, since the documentation is not particularly great. Inexplicably, I found myself with a bit of time recently and have finally managed to cross this one off my list :clap:

Hopefully, I'll be able to follow this series up with another one, that explains how to go the other way - extending Python with your own custom features. Just give me a couple of years... 🙄

I'm looking forward to this, but I know you're really busy and have to find a few hours a day to sleep... so I'll be patient. Thanks again!!!
