I'm interested in a simple interface for messaging - just the basics:
send/receive messages, add remove friends, etc - either in a language
neutral form, or in Python. I'll be using it from a web based app, so
no traditional UI.
My first thought was to create a simple swig/ctypes/etc wrapper around
libpurple for Python, but then I ran across dbus. After a bit of
futzing around I have dbus working, for the most part.
My questions are:
- Are there any existing Python wrappers I can use?
- Am I better off wrapping the libpurple C API in Python or using
DBus? Are there any disadvantages to using DBus?
- Anyone else interested in a no-frills Python libpurple wrapper?
