Meet PyJudo: A software Judo scoreboard written entirely in Python using wxWidgets.
Since Python is an interpreted language and PyJudo uses wxWidgets, PyJudo is OS independent (although the wxWidget elements may need tweaking to optimize in each OS's environment).
PyJudo was conceived with many goals in mind including:
1) Provide a low-cost scoreboard solution to Judo Dojos worldwide
2) Encourage Judo community members to pursue software programming and participate in open source projects
3) Increase the developers' Python proficiency
We are pleased to announce that our first version, PyJudo Alpha 0.1, will be released within the next week! This version will already include most core scoreboard functionality, and is intended to be fit for use immediately. Additional features will be added as time goes on, but we want to get this first version out there so people can test it and give us feedback.
The PyJudo developement team would like to thank wxGlade ( http://wxglade.sourceforge.net/ ), a GUI utility for wxWidgets. In addition to saving us time and effort, wxGlade enables PyJudo users to effortlessly make customizations to our GUI without having an advanced programming background (wxGlade project files will be included with every release).
Thanks everyone. Keep a keen eye on the horizon for PyJudo Alpha 0.1!
