A presentation tool for developers.


In your virtualenv, install Podium, and then run it:

$ pip install podium
$ podium

This will pop up a GUI window.

Problems under Ubuntu/Debian

Debian and Ubuntu’s packaging of Python omits the idlelib library from it’s base packge. If you’re using Python 2.7 on Ubuntu 13.04, you can install idlelib by running:

$ sudo apt-get install idle-python2.7

For other versions of Python, Ubuntu and Debian, you’ll need to adjust this as appropriate.

Problems under Windows

If you’re running Podium in a virtualenv, you’ll need to set an environment variable so that Podium can find the TCL graphics library:

$ set TCL_LIBRARY=c:\Python27\tcl\tcl8.5

You’ll need to adjust the exact path to reflect your local Python install. You may find it helpful to put this line in the activate.bat script for your virtual environment so that it is automatically set whenever the virtualenv is activated.
