Notifications in Python

A great way to have desktop notifications for Python applications is to use Growl.  Available for Mac and Windows

Growl for Mac: http://growl.info

Growl for Windows: http://www.growlforwindows.com/

Once installed, you will need the python library gntp (Growl Notification Transport Protocol). https://pypi.python.org/pypi/gntp

I now have an ArcGIS online account.  I’m not sure what I will be posting on this mapping service, but we’ll see what I come up with.  Right now, I’ve posted the bus and light rail maps for RTD Denver.
