Why Python?

  • because writing in C sucks
  • your time is valuable
  • once a python zealot, always a python zealot.

Compiling python from source

  1. Construct the Scratchbox environment.
  2. Download the source to the python flavor of your choice
  3. ./configure; make; make install

If you're too lazy to do all that...

You can download all of this prebuilt in python2.6-chumby.tgz (13MB).

Just unpack onto a USB drive, add your python code and a "debugchumby" script, and you can write your own python applications for your chumby!
