ThinkSQL ODBC Driver Source

2012-06-22 — Greg Gaughan

The ThinkSQL ODBC driver source code is now available here.

The driver is pure Delphi but the specification is C-based and very detailed. Memory handling and complex state transitions between client and server made this a large undertaking.


Run a pipe2py-generated pipe on Google App Engine

2011-07-14 — Greg Gaughan

Once you've used pipe2py to convert your Yahoo! Pipe into a local Python module, you can then host it as your own Google App Engine application. You just need a bit of boilerplate to handle the parameters and output formatting. I've created a sample project containing this boilerplate here: You'll need to include a copy of pipe2py, so it can find the modules it needs, and replace the demo pipeline references with your own. See the README for details.

Running Yahoo! Pipes on Google App Engine

2010-10-24 — Greg Gaughan

Yahoo! Pipes is an excellent tool for processing data. It provides a visual way to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the web. It's very much like plumbing with data and is a great metaphor. I'm convinced that this approach is just the beginning, and look forward to connecting systems using pipes in a three-dimensional virtual environment with tactile and audio feedback... soon.
