Install EasyGUI on Mac OS X

Download EasyGUI if you have not done so already. In the directory where you downloaded the .tar file, follow the terminal commands below:

$ tar -xvf easygui_v0.95.tar
$ sudo python setup.py install

The ‘$’ should not be typed within the terminal window, as this refers to the privilege level. You could also copy “easygui.py” to “/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/” directory.  To check if the module is installed within Python type:

Python Code:

>>> import easygui
>>> easygui.msgbox("Hello There!")


>>> help()
>>> easygui

control + D

The Littoral Cave

Sea cave are “formed primarily by the wave action of the sea”. This erosion is ongoing against host rocks and when there is a weak zone, caves start to form. One of my ‘wave action’ goals for 2012 is learning to program. Douglas Rushkoff author of Program or be Programmed: Ten Commands for a Digital Age candidly writes:

“In the emerging, highly programmed landscape ahead, you will either create the software or you will be the software.  It’s really that simple: Program, or be programmed. Choose the former, and you gain access to the control panel of civilization. Choose the latter, and it could be the last real choice you get to make.”

I choose not to just continue learning how to use programs but how to make them as well. Starting with Code Year, which sends interactive programming lessons each week. I have also started to read a few books for learning how to program in Python:
