My Blog Post on iOS9 Slide Over
Not off-topic, I think.
This blog post of mine uses some Pythonista code.
Might spark some thoughts and discussion here.
For one, how to stop the pythonista web server script quitting on me. (Not sure it's just when I shut Pythonista down.)
Anyhow here it is:
That's interesting. It looks it still needs the user to paste in text? It'd be cool if the SlideOver pane could programmatically access the text that is selected in the background window.
By the way does anyone know how to get simpleHTTPServer to serve a Content-Type header of
AddType text/cache-manifest .manifest
as this would enable offline web apps - so Pythonista could go down once the page has been served ONCE?
Solved - using BaseHTTPServer and handling do_GET to add the Content-Type header and then serve the file contents.
So now Pythonista can serve Offline Web Apps. Which means it can go down and still Safari bookmark in Slide Over can access the "widget".
Might couple that with a Workflow flow that invokes URLs from a palette and publish a follow up web post.
