Since I've got an android device, I try to developp on it. I've tried
Kivy, which is a little more than an android framework ;-). It's really multiplatforms, but target multi-touch devices. It's pretty cool to be able to developp powerful app with the python language. The only big downside, is that the size of the resulting package/apk : at less 6mb ;-(
Yesterday, I've tried the SDK/ADT android java framework in Eclipse. Forget the multiplatform ;-), but it's really powerful, and let you do what you want, in a great development context/ide. It's really easy to code/test and see the result immediately. I will stick with that !
The size of a resulting package/apk starts at 10kb ;-).
I've made an App which consumes JSON http request/response to build its own interface (button, checkbox, searchbox, spinner, ...). In fact, the same thing I've made in LUA for my squeezeboxes, 10 months ago. I've made a phonegap and a native one for my android. The native version is really really responsive, looks better/real (coz native), and consumes less memory/cpu.
No android apps to release here, because they only works in my LAN. But I should ask my self, if I should release "My Json Server protocol", which can deliver some UI actions, because I've got 3 clients now: a web version (with jqm), an android one, and a squeezebox applet ;-). With this thing, you can easily setup a server which "do some things", and control it from a browser, an android or a squeezebox ;-) ... does anyone is interested?

The second big thing : I've bought an android device, my first phone and my first smartphone ;-) What a great device ! I've started to developp apk with kivy (a python framework to make multi-touch app): very easy to use. The only downside is that the apk starts with a minimal size of 6mb, but an app works on major platforms (win/*nix/mac/android/iOS). My android is the perfect device to drive my squeezeboxes too ;-)
A new release of py2deb too ;-), and a new release for jbrout too

Since I've got my squeezebox'es, all code I done it's related to my music server, or music hacking. I can nearly listen all what I want. There are a lot of python's lib to fetch content from grooveshark, pandora, lastfm, echonest or vk ;-) (Note : I should release my python lastfm client (yet another one) ! and my lua applet for squeezebox)
The last thing which interested me is playdar : a music content resolver. I never reach to run it, so I decided to create mine.
Introducing PyPlaydar : a Playdar music server resolver.
Currently, it resolves nothing ;-). It's just the implementation of the playdar protocol. But it's easily plugin'able ! It's fully compatible with current JS clients !
It use the latest bottlepy and the cherrypy wsgi server (all included).
At this time, I really don't know if I will push it. Currently, it helps me to understand how it's working. I'm trying to chain Playnode(a recent java one) and tomahawk, a smart music player which embed a playdar server.
I'd like to create a content-resolver playdar server for my squeezebox'es. But I don't know yet, if I will push it, because I already have this kind of feature (my own resolver).

Since some days, ibraining.com reach the limit of the free quotas on google app engine. And it was not always available ;-)
It's my first GAE website which goes seriously out of the free quotas. And I've decided to inject some dollars in the billing system.
It's Time to pay the service ;-)

7 months without any post ... a record ;-)
In fact, I was playing with my box'es ;-). At the beginning of the year, I've got my freebox revolution v6 : a great toy, with a lot of features to test ;-). I won't list all the features (everybody should know them now), but it was(/is) a great move from Free. There were a lot of bugs at the beginning, but firmware updates are frequent, and all the main features work very well.
The only trouble, for me, is that I can't test my freebox's apps on the V6, and I can't developp new ones. But it seems that elixir will be available this summer.
The other boxes, which take my time, are the squeezebox'es. I've bought a Touch and a Radio one. I wanted to change the way to listen music at home. In the past, my main computer was running mpd. The sound was sended to the hifi in living-room, and to different active radio-frequency HP in home. The server was drived thru a http website, the multimedia's keys of my keyboard, or with a radio-frequency remote. It was great, but not really simple for others ;-). With SqueezeBox'es : they do all that things (and a lot more) in a simpler way, with LCD display. For me : it's the perfect solution ! Everything is now inter-connected : my music (on a Nas), my computers, the box'es (squeeze and freebox), and the audio with my lastfm account.
And the best : I can develop things on the squeezebox device, or on the serverside, to enhance the experience. I've started my dev with a generic applet (in LUA), which is able to understand json commands, over http, to display some widgets on the device (menu, search box, text ...). It let me easily develop serverside's features with python ;-)
I'm in love with theses boxes ! They are perfect for non-geeks, but are really really perfect for geeks/developpers too.
I think I will release my squeezebox's applet, because it's an easy way to add serverside's features (in any language) not related to a real squeezebox server (which is perl based ;-( ).

It's christmas : Great day for GAE lovers. Channels are available in GAE ! I have played since yesterday : It's amazing, and well integrated.
I can start to implement web game in atomic bombers
EDIT : It seems it's not real websocket (to be able to work on every browsers, or because html5 specs is not really finnished). But it works like. Currently the JS SDK do polling for you ;-(. Hope the real websocket will be available soon !

Sorry for this little post. Just want to inform autowifi's users that the new release should now support neuf/sfr hotspots too.
my PPA is not up-to-date (due to quickly/launchpad trouble)
you will find latest releases here !!!

Il fallait que je test l'appstore de la freebox. C'est chose faite, Simon est maintenant disponible (gratuitement) dans le freestore. Les heureux possesseurs de freebox le trouveront dans la section jeux/gratuit.
Ça redonne envie de s'y remettre, à la programmation elixir sur freebox ;-)
Sinon, j'aime beaucoup BounceBox

Sorry for that ! It seems it makes some times since autowifi couldn't autologin on freewifi hotspots. In fact, free.fr made some changes in the authent process, and autowifi was broken for 1 or 2 months (?!). In daylife, I use only FON spots, so I never saw this bug, sorry ;-)
Now it should be corrected with 0.1-public23 release for lucid.

I'm a big fan of snippets concepts ;-). I'd always used snippets web sites. I'd started with dzone. I'd switched to friendsnippets.com. But this last one is dead ... and I'd switched to snipplr.com, which is a great service (with lot of external tools, and great api). But I always needed to developp my own backends, to use them offline (komodo snippets file, gsnip (popup menu for inserting snippets in an editor), html file, xmpp/mail bot...).
Now, it's over ;-) I had switched to my own, which is a app engine website, which works online and offline, and sync enabled (thanks to newest html5 features). No need to say that it fits my needs. My snippets will always be available, at least, for me ;-) ... There is now a "snippets link" at the bottom of my website.
I don't know if I will get the force to make it available for everyone too. But it's perfect for me.
