New beauty in Camelot
[EuroPython 2011] Erik Janssens,Jeroen Dierckx - 22 June 2011 in "Track Ravioli "
Camelot is a Python framework that leverages SQLAlchemy and QT to build rich desktop applications. The model - view definition used was inspired by the Django Admin interface. Some see it as a replacement for MS Access, but it's underlying libraries allow much more advanced features.
In this talk we will focus on the changes and new features that were introduced in Camelot and more importantly, how they can be used in your applications. Those features range from Matplotlib chart integration and new types of actions to displaying custom SQLAlchemy queries in a table view.
We will share our experiences with large scale deployment of Python and Camelot applications to the desktop of the user. In a number of case studies we will point out the mistakes we made and how they were corrected.
