Well, after a lot of hacking GPytage 0.3.0 RC1 is finally ready to be released. This version underwent nearly a complete rewrite to make coding it much easier and of course improve the end users experience of editing Portage's config files. For those of you who don't know, GPytage is a PyGTK application for editing Portage's config files such as package.keywords.

Notable features of this release include:

  • Supports recursive directory support now, where the old release was limited to one depth of a package.foo directory
  • Improved creation, deletion, and renaming of files. You can now rightclick in the leftpanel on the desired file and get these options as well
  • Copy and Paste support now implemented
  • When editing an entry you can now hit tab to save the change and move to the next editable field.
  • When adding a new file, reverting, deleting, or a similar operation is executed the folder you were currently in is now reselected after GPytage reloads its database


GPytage should be hitting the Portage tree in the next few hours. A simple
Code:
emerge -av =app-portage/gpytage-0.3.0_rc1
should net you package for testing. It will be keyworded ~arch, so stable users will need to add an entry to package.keywords to install it.

While this is a release candidate, there should not be any bugs floating around. If you find any bugs or want to suggest an improvement don't hesitate to either post it here or at https://gna.org/projects/gpytage/

A screenshot can be found here

Looking forward to hearing everyone's feedback.

Note that GPytage needs to be run as a user with permission to edit these files and doesn't currently display any kind of message box if a write fails because of improper permissions (but does output it to the terminal).

I tried to convert package.use with gpytage, but it doesn't work. Clicking on 'Convert file->Subfile' results in this :

Code:
TypeError: TODO() takes exactly 1 argument (2 given)

How are you supposed to use this package? I've installed it but even running as root it doesn't modify anything.
