Writing Titanium Desktop Applications with Python

Appcelerator's Titanium Desktop provides the developer a means to use
Python code, callable from Javascript. It provides a desktop
application that will run on OSX, Linux, or Windows. Much of the
backend is also written in Python which creates the applications,
bundling, packaging, etc...although our libraries which are callable
through Javascript are written in C/C++/Objective-C. The source code
is open source and is readily available from github. This environment
provides another way to deliver applications and can be useful to
Python programmers in general. The product offers much more, but I
wanted to highlite the fact that it does allow Python, and explain how
it provides a flexible web interface on your desktop.
