    Theoretically, you could write an interpreter for the ROM that then takes the data and displays it via the screen module. I know that's very vague, but if you had individually-addressed pixels that are handled and displayed through the screen module, you could then process and display all the data to those simulated "pixels" manually.

    @JonB it definitely takes some getting-used-to. But once you've gotten into it, it's actually really enjoyable to use.

    The upvote and downvote system is pretty handy, the comments are nested nicely, and the community isn't normally super toxic (depends on what subreddit you're in). I don't see ours being bad, though.

    I use the Boost app on Android, personally, and it works like a charm. It has the functionality you're looking for. Unfortunately with the fact that Pythonista is an iOS app, and you're still using this forum, you're probably still an iPhone user, so that might be out of the picture.

    I guess it depends on what client you use. I have always hated the Reddit website. It's disgusting. The remodel helped a bit, but I still prefer client apps.

    Reddit is awesome, and it already hosts many forum-like subreddits that do very well themselves. I think it'd' be a great idea to migrate. Security in terms of our data is good, and the accessibility of Reddit is a plus as well.

    I wasn't really a huge fan of NodeBB from the start.

    Yeah, Tkinter is not Pythonista-compatible. I'm pretty sure this has something to do with it not being entirely Python. It's an interface to the Tk framework that lower-level languages like C++ use. It's a machine code library, and thus couldn't run in Pythonista due to the extent that Apple goes to prevent apps from running executables.

    But let's say you could get Tkinter to run on Pythonista. It wouldn't work because Pythonista doesn't have anything that handles the rendering of the windows and widgets that Tkinter produces.

    Of course, you could write something to work around this. Maybe you could embark on a project to make a Flask application that presents your Tkinter GUI as a webpage that Flask serves locally. Then you could have it open that local page with webbrowser.open("http://localhost:8080") or something similar.

    Or you could write something to display Tkinter applications as native Pythonista UIs.

    This may be out of your scope (I know I would have trouble with this). I'm not sure if anyone else has attempted this before. Sorry!

    P.S: I'm only collected emails for the survey in case some of you give answers I need more detail on.

    So, a few of you already know that I've been working on a package manager utility for StaSh (if you didn't, now you do). The code is hosted at https://github.com/Seanld/Latte, if you want to check it out.

    I created a survey I need you to fill out with various questions that will help me make it the way everyone wants it to be made. However, I'm gonna stop production of it if enough of you say you don't think it's necessary (there's an option for that in the survey, so don't comment it here).

    Anyways, the survey is right here. Please take it and answer all the available questions based on how you answered the first question.

    Thanks a lot!

    (Obviously it's not released yet, but once I get the first usable version of the format ready to go, I'll create a new GitHub repository for it.)
