sugarbot's aim is to provide testing and automation facilities for the OLPC Project's Sugar GUI. The project must first identify and evaluate possible implementation options, and then implement the best choice. Although it has a Sugar focus, sugarbot should be easily extensible to other Python-based GUI's.

Sugarbot/buildbot integration is complete. I only have one port opened on the box that it's running on, but you can access it here: http://22.214.171.124:22. To access that with Firefox, you need to change a setting. I'm working on getting a different port opened.

- Masquerading as any Activity while retaining all functionality
- Hooks into PyGTK library to intercept GDK Events to catalog widgets
- Intelligent identification of widgets based on widget class to give each widget a unique identifier
- Manipulation of many types of widgets using generic commands like 'click' and 'type'
- Multithreaded execution routine prevents hang-ups (prior versions would stall once the calls to the GTK handler stopped due to inactivity)
- Custom scripting language with support for advanced string manipulation [will soon be replaced by native Python code]
- XML-RPC client/server interface allows the scripts to be stored on a central machine, while sugarbot may be run on any number of slaves.
- Per-command status reporting and graceful error handling
- Does not rely on any libraries or modules outside those already provided by Sugar and Python
- Automated testing provided via buildbot and python-nose.

Well that was pretty friggin simple. Only a few *hours* of Googling for that one. The buildbot is not yet publicly accessible, but it now runs all 70 tests just fine. My Google-fu has truly failed me :-(. In my defense, I did find the solution earlier, but the prior finds didn't mention that the "xhost +" command had to be run as root.

from sugar.graphics import Palette
I don't have a machine that I can put the buildbot on that can be accessed remotely (yet), but I should have a shiny new Dell any day now (it was ordered ~3 weeks ago) for my work with Univ. of Houston that I can throw a buildbot on.

Unless something in xmlrpclib or SimpleXMLRPCServer breaks (which isn't something I can do much about), you end up with the same results. I can't believe I wasted this much time on the problem!!!
- Trying to keep it pretty...
- It's Alive!!!
- Mutliple Clients, Return Status
- Multiple Clients
- Big Changes
- Somebody please tell me why the following code doe...
- So Close!
- Missing Something

- Stateful XML-RPC Server
- Full automation
- Automated Launching: Go!
- Launching Activities Automatically
- Mid-Summer Screencast
- O ya
- Wierd logging issue...
- Buildbot is [almost] working
- Buildbot Up and Running
- Ideas??? Buildbot complains...
- Next Step
- Feels good
