I wrote a couple of weeks ago a little teaser about writing a custom cell renderer. When I first started witter, I found that a treeview was the obvious way to display tweets. And the available cell renderer was CellRendererText. which took care of the basics. However it didn't look terribly 'pretty'
As a teaser to a future post I thought I'd post an early screenshot of Witter using a custom cell renderer.
One of the most common requests for Witter has been to do auto-refresh on feeds. The challenge of doing this is having to switch from a single threaded user driven app, to a multi threaded app. This brings a bunch of challenges. For me the first was wanting to separate my code into separate python files for the first time.
