Reinteract thumbnail

Earlier this month, Owen Taylor announced Reinteract ("a system for interactive experimentation with python"). I've been wanting something like this for a while now.

In this article, we're going to turn it into a ROX application. In the past, this has meant taking a copy of a program and renaming and changing things to fit the ROX application structure. The trouble is, the ROX version and the original upstream version diverge over time. So, we're going to look at how improvements in tooling can make things easier for us.
