Pytao - Tao Te Ching random passage utility
This is a small script that, when run, displays a PyGtk window containing a random passage from the Tao Te Ching. It requires a sqlite3 database containing the text of the Tao Te Ching. Included is get-tao.py, a script that scrapes just that off of www.daily-tao.com and creates the database. The location of the database is, by default '/usr/local/share/pytao/tao.db' - if you'd prefer a different location, change the following line in pytao.py: default_data_file = "/usr/local/share/pytao/tao.db" It has a "New Passage" button that will pick a new passage, but it gets mighty ugly the more you click.
