pyGUI & wake a sleeping Mac example.

I started playing around with pyGUI a year or two ago, which allows fast gui development on OS X, Windows, and Linux from Python. I wrote a little app to wake up Macs awhile back and packaged it as a standard Mac bundle. In theory the raw Python should run on Windows, but be aware […]
