It seems to me that every time I go to write some networking code in Python, the twisted guys have got there before me. Today’s adventures are involving twisted conch, which seems very cool. The documentation is a bit patchy though.
Ok, so I thought it would be cool to be able to send Google Talk messages to my MythTV box. Can’t be too hard to write a twisted python jabber client can it? Well, after an hour of surfing, I give up. I have the simple jabber client example, but it totally doesn’t work with the Google servers, I suspect because it doesn’t do SSL. I can see one of the twisted.words maintainers filing bugs against the xish stuff too, which I suspect means it’s going to be a while.
A little bit disappointing me thinks.
