Python + macbook sms (sudden motion sensor)

Install PyAppleSMS. Use it as

import applesms
(x,y,z) = applesms.coords()


  1. hi,

    i try to do do this, but *#$@*

    how to install the software PyAppleSMS?

    i`ve this problem

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "", line 3, in
    import applesms
    ImportError: dlopen(/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/, 2): Symbol not found: _IOConnectMethodStructureIStructureO
    Referenced from: /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/
    Expected in: flat namespace
    in /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/

  2. Which platform are you on? Try

    to see if they have a version for your OS.

    In general, you should state the OS, the python version and the library version as a minimum to help people with your question.


  3. Note, with newer versions of OS X, you'll need to edit the file applesms.c, as follows:

    // result = IOConnectMethodStructureIStructureO(dataPort, kernFunc, structureInputSize,
    // &structureOutputSize, &inputStructure, outputStructure);

    result = IOConnectCallStructMethod(dataPort, kernFunc,
    &inputStructure, structureInputSize,
    outputStructure, &structureOutputSize);

Flowing text in inkscape (Poster making)

You can flow text into arbitrary shapes in inkscape. (From a hint here).

You simply create a text box, type your text into it, create a frame with some drawing tool, select both the text box and the frame (click and shift) and then go to text->flow into frame.


The omnipresent anonymous asked:
Trying to enter sentence so that text forms the number three...any ideas?
The solution:
Type '3' using the text toolConvert to path using object->pathSize as necessaryRemove fillUngroupType in actual text in new text boxSelect the text and the '3' pathFlow the text

Pandas panel = collection of tables/data frames aligned by index and column

Pandas panel provides a nice way to collect related data frames together while maintaining correspondence between the index and column values:

import pandas as pd, pylab #Full dimensions of a slice of our panel index = ['1','2','3','4'] #major_index columns = ['a','b','c'] #minor_index df = pd.DataFrame(pylab.randn(4,3),columns=columns,index=index) #A full slice of the panel df2 = pd.DataFrame(pylab.randn(3,2),columns=['a','c'],index=['1','3','4']) #A partial slice df3 = pd.DataFrame(pylab.randn(2,2),columns=['a','b'],index=['2','4']) #Another partial slice df4 = pd.DataFrame(pylab.randn(2,2),columns=['d','e'],index=['5','6']) #Partial slice with a new column and index pn = pd.Panel({'A': df}) pn['B'] = df2 pn['C'] = df3 pn['D'] = df4 for key in pn.items: print pn[key] -> output …

Drawing circles using matplotlib

Use the pylab.Circle command

import pylab #Imports matplotlib and a host of other useful modules cir1 = pylab.Circle((0,0), radius=0.75, fc='y') #Creates a patch that looks like a circle (fc= face color) cir2 = pylab.Circle((.5,.5), radius=0.25, alpha =.2, fc='b') #Repeat (alpha=.2 means make it very translucent) ax = pylab.axes(aspect=1) #Creates empty axes (aspect=1 means scale things so that circles look like circles) ax.add_patch(cir1) #Grab the current axes, add the patch to it ax.add_patch(cir2) #Repeat
