You chose 'exit': Goodbye!

As you can see, there are layout bugs aplenty. And ordinary bugs too. And it's a bit 'squashed' too. Considering it's being developed on a iPhone that's not surprising.

What I needed to make this work

  • A account; no developer account is required for single-user apps,
  • Python, via the iOS Pythonista app. Note: I'm converting the application from Python 2.7 to 3.5 (see the documentation.)
  • StaSh, a bash-like shell for Pythonista, to give pip, which allows installation of…
  • @33MHz & @thrrgilag's PNUTpy library,
  • Access to the good people of, for when comprehension failed,
  • Half a brain.

Repo structure:

If you want to know more, the most important things to look at here are:

  • The Documentation.
  • The app, obviously. The code comments will likely always be more useful than the documentation,
  • This README file.

Why did I do this?

Good question.

Why 'PigPen'?

App names are chosen throughout the developer community to reflect the pnut (peanut) name. After a lot of thought I decided to choose PigPen from the Peanuts show character Pig-Pen; he's a scruffy boy without a name.

Incidentally, it took longer choosing the app name than it did to get to the first release to GitHub!
