HylaFAX The world's
most advanced open source fax server
[hylafax-users] Yet another Hylafax Client!
I'm proud to announce that my new Hylafax Client is now version 1.0, if
someone's interested in a multiplatform client please try it and let me
know what you think of it.
The client is written using the Python language, its main features are:
o Platform independece. It's been tested on Linux and Windows, but
shoud work with little effort on mac too. I'm going to test on Mac
myself in the near future.
o Easy to change. Pyla is written in Python, so it should be
really easy for a power user to modify and extend pyla's behaviour.
o Easy to understand. Python language is quite simple to
understand, even if you are not a programmer. If someone is interested
in Hylafax Protocol you can easily take a look at pyla's sources, which
are quite clear (but not well documented yet! ;-( ).
o Configuration profiles. With Pyla you can setup many
configuration profiles so you can share the program on a file server or
in a multi-user environment.
o Fax cover. Pyla is able to send faxcovers. In the package you
can find a cover tmplate too.
o Job management. With Pyla you can do simple job management,
such as stopping, starting or altering a job.
o Admin mode. Pyla can be configured with an Admin user so you
can have access also on other people's jobs.
o Fax printer support. Pyla is designed to be used in
conjunction with a fax printer. In this way you can simply print from
your favorite application and send a fax. On Unix you can use a simple
simple script (sample included), on Windows you can use RedMon
(http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/redmon/) or similar programs.
o Ldap addressbook. Pyla can be configured to use Ldap
directories to store fax numbers.
Pyla is still in Beta stage so any bug report is welcome!
