Part VI: Appendixes > Other Tools and Software

E.7. Other Tools and Software

There aren't many PalmPilot-oriented programs being developed for Linux or Unix workstations, but that situation may change once the connectivity suites are mature. Development tools exist, but they're traditional command-line drive tools, which are less attractive to developers accustomed to the GUI-driven Integrated Development Environments.

E.7.1. Pyrite

Pyrite (formerly called PalmPython) is one of the more exciting new tools. It's an extension of Python, the object-oriented scripting language, and was developed on a PC running Linux. Pyrite requires Python 1.5 or newer and pilot-link 0.8.11 or newer running on Linux. It should also work with little or no modification on most Unix platforms.
