Had time, so finished up the app! Hurrah!
Ok, so this makes up for one of my missed days, so I have to do a hundred and one only.
Running the app, downloads some lolcat images from the net, saves them to a folder and then opens up the folder for you to enjoy :)
The last app taught me how to download text over the internet.
- taught me to download binary data (images in our program)
- learnt how to detect what operating system runs on my computer
- learnt how to reach out to the operating systems shell and run commands
The amount of modules that I am now being exposed to is a bit dizzying.
A long term plan, would be to look at the more common ones and study them in depth.1
The code’s over at Gitlab and Github.
I had lots of fun. Onwards!
