Exercising Those Developer Muscles

Project Vulcan continues apace with Archons and the occasional Chimera for a corp mate being produced and sold on market for copious amounts of ISK.

The one frustrating part of the project is keeping an eye on all the moving parts in this operation that is spread across multiple characters: Buy orders, sell orders, industry jobs, contracts, and assets. Even with everything done through the corporation, I still need to log in to see what's going on or use a third party tool.

So being the masochist that I am, I decided the best course of action was to build my own little app that would allow me to see my status at a glance. I've got the API calls I need to make and decided that instead of trying to do a heavy C#/.Net app again I would do some playing around in Python.

Progress So Far
So far I got a window with a poorly placed listbox. Its been a busy day.


  1. If the TK UI kit doesn't do it for you, have a look at wxPython and PyQt.

  2. Have you taken a look at LMeve? and although it's not yet updated for phoebe.

    1. You can also take a look at Evernus -
      It has lmeve integration built in, so you can easily track both production and market.
