If nobody submits a project they'd like us to work on, I'll look into building the second generation of my web chat application.

    Proposal:
    Create a Python GTK app that wraps tabs around programs such as XTerm (and gvim if time allows) using the XEmbed protocol.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XEmbed
    XEmbed allows the nesting of one application inside another application's window on systems using X Window System.

    http://www.gtk.org/api/2.6/gtk/GtkSocket.html
    GtkSocket — Container for widgets from other processes http://linux.die.net/man/1/xterm
    -into windowId
    Given an X window identifier (a decimal integer), xterm will reparent its top-level shell widget to that window. This is used to embed xterm within other applications.

    http://vimdoc.sourceforge.net/htmldoc/gui_x11.html#gui-gtk-socketid
    If you pass Vim the command-line option '--socketid' with a decimal or
    hexadecimal value, Vim will create a GtkPlug widget using that value instead
    of the normal GtkWindow. This enables Vim to act as a GTK+ plugin.

      I think you're a month too late to propose for this meetup ;) Anyhoo, I'm personally hesistant (and probably others too) to work on non-Django related projects. Hacking on GTK sounds fun but it has to remain work related for me.

    Gotta drop out tonight. Unfortunately, the Melbourne Developers Meetup announced a meeting at the same time on the last minute.

    Hi guys, I am going to bring 2 ideas as candidates. 1, a home security/automation site that monitors what's happening at home and responses(i.e. if breakin, raise alarm; if raining and windows are open, closes the windows). It should allow users to access remotely. The Second idea being is to finish my current personal project: a to-do-list built with Django- REST-framework, having one-page responsive design with backbone.JS. Currently, the backend (API, Database are done). But still has the front end jobs left.

      Colin and I were planning on working through some common problems with Django, DRF & AngularJS.

    Hey guys, I've been following MelbDjango for a while now but haven't come along to any events. I'm keen to come along to this one, would someone mind giving me a run down of the plan? Do we bring a project, or come to collaborate with others?
