The Movie is horribly out of date. The current version of the app has
source on left, content on right with a split bar in the middle so you
can adjust real-estate as needed. It also vastly reduces the amount of
wasted screen real estate around the window. I.e. the UI transitioned
from "Very Useful ReST Explorer" to "Very Useful ReST Editor".
It also has a proper toolbar that is largely underutilized right now.
That will be changing in the future.
The foundation for kqueue based monitoring of files is already in and
the next feature added will be auto-rerender whenever file on disk
changes. This will be used in conjunction with SubEthaEdit to do
collaborative editing of ReST documents (among other things).
For those that are curious, the implementation is pure Python using
PyObjC -- so, a lot of the "pure Python" is actually messaging to and
subclassing of Objective-C objects. As a result, it is a 100% Cocoa
app that just happens to be written in Python.
