Introduction to the Bespin Python backend

It’s been less than two weeks since Bespin was introduced, and there’s already been an impressive amount of activity around the open source project. There are at least 3 entirely new Bespin servers that I’m aware of.

The current Bespin server that we at Mozilla are maintaining is written in Python and appears in the backend/python directory in the Bespin source. To help people get up to speed with the code, I have created a screencast to help people get started with the Python backend and give them an idea of how the code is set up.

I look forward to hearing your feedback!

  1. Kevin, thanks for sharing this. This is indeed exciting and I look forward to testing and working on the Bespin server.

  2. Thank you very much, Kevin, for introducing the video. It’s really very convenient to have a look at. I think it’s quite easy and affordable source project. As far I understood the group of people comes to the server in the public domain and rewrites (or add) the code for the general convenience and free use of. I do not use internet very often in my life, but nevertheless Bespin server will try to use. Not bad approach to work. You’re the real professionals I think!

  3. Yes, the video explains very well what is going on. This is a platform our team may try for one of our projects in the near future. Thank you

  4. Thanks for sharing this Kevin. This is fun, I love open source projects. I like the corner of the video with you speaking, which software do you use to do this?

  5. I’m glad you like the video!

    I likely used ScreenFlow to do that video. Camtasia can also do live video along with screen video.
