I've been coding bits here and there with Python and I'm most interested in Desktop Environments, for which I always have ideas I want to try out.
I have tried to play around with python-xlib but there is too little documentation on how to use this, and the ICCCM doc is very obscure. So I haven't been able to go very far.
More over I am not so much interested in making a window manager as I am interested in making applications for the desktop environment that interact with it. e.g. a task-bar. Talking to X directly then, means bypassing the WM.
So I'd like to know whether there is any of the major WM out there that have python bindings, so I could interact with them. I've found python-metacity and python-compizsettings but I've found zero documentation out there on how to use them.
The overall picture is a bit depressing from the Python viewpoint. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
