A new family member: Welcome aboard, Odroid XU-4

Saturday, May 25, 2019

Hello there, Over the last couple of years, I have repurposed a few Raspberry Pi’S sitting around in a corner in my bedroom to act as a Home NAS (network attached storage) and HTPC, running Kodi with its awesome screen reader addon for Linux. However, some months ago I have started to look for a change for a more performant SoC, due to some issues concerning Raspberry Pi (examples are lack of hardware decoders for H.

Moving to Python 3

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Over the past 6 months, approximately, I have been revisiting some of my projects written in Python (that means, basically all my public projects plus some more that have been not released) to explore the possibility of moving them all from Python 2.x versions to Python 3.

socializer: Accessible VK client V0.16

Tuesday, December 18, 2018

Two years ago, in february 2016, I have started to code an application called Socializer. Its goal is to be a full featured windows client to use all features present in VK, the largest russian social network and one of the places I enjoy to visit dayly. If you have used TWBlue, socializer was designed to do the same as TWBlue, but for a more featured social network full of rich content and with real time chat, among other interesting things.

Sentence finder: my first Django project

Sunday, October 28, 2018

During the last few months, I have been captivated by Django and its rich set of features. I have been learning a few different technologies recently, including Django and Flask. I have been using Web2py for the last 3 years, and while I still use it for several projects and consider it a very stable and mature framework, I wanted to try out other frameworks to do web stuff in Python.

A little weekend project: mudder, a GUI around Lyntin

Saturday, March 17, 2018

Sometimes I am getting bored when I am having a long time coding in the same project. Usually I just code something else, or watch an episode of a TV show, or something totally unrelated to code at all. Who knows? this time, I discovered a mud (multi user domain) client written entirely in Python.

My new project: MusicDL, a simple music downloader

Saturday, March 10, 2018

Here I’d like to write something about the new project I am developing. It’s called MusicDL, and its purpose is simple: it should allow searching, playing and downloading music from different websites. I consider it’s heavily inspired by Chris Norman’s project, GMP3. Being honest,I just was taking a little course about web scraping in Python and wanted to apply something of what I have learnt in a simple thing.
