Tough week-end again trying to get my hands on the cool IPython integration with GLib's main loop. Thanks to that it is possible to interact at runtime with any Pigment application just by launching an IPython shell like that:

ipython -gthread

You can guess that from that point on I was eager to show it! After many rehearsals of I do not know how many lines of code learnt by heart I finally discovered IPython's demo mode and got around making a screencast out of it.

It demonstrates how quick Python + Pigment is at prototyping flashy GUIs. As usual, the effects shown do not incur any CPU cost and is completely smooth on my so incredibly fast Intel 915.

Enjoy!
