I'm looking around for a way to program some gui apps in ubuntu 12.04.
I ran across the quickly tutorial and the tool looks fantastic.
It looks like the primary language you develop with is python, which is fine with me.
But I know that I will need to link in C (or other compiled) code for intensive number crunching and to take advantage of the huge number of binary libraries out there.
I understand that python is designed so that you can link c code into it (although I don't know anything about the details, such as whether it can be done dynamically, or whether you have to build a new python interpreter executable, etc).
So my question is whether it is possible to fit in linked C (or other compiled) code into the quickly workflow, and if you do, can you still build deb packages to distribute your code. (I wouldn't mind writing a few makefiles or scripts or whatever to do this.)
And are there any examples out there that I could take a look at?
