- What's Pyla Project?
Pyla wants to be a new Hylafax client entirely written using the Python
- What can I do with Pyla?
With Pyla you can basically send and manage faxes. It actually mimics
WHFC in its interface so if you like WHFC, you'll probably feel
comfortable with Pyla too.
- Why should I use Pyla?
There're a lot of Hylafax clients out there, Pyla's main advantage is
probably its platform independence.
- Which features does Pyla have?
Main pyla features are:
- Platform independence. 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.
- 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.
- 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! ;-( ).
- 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.
- Fax cover. Pyla is able to send faxcovers. In the package
you can find a cover template too.
- Job management. With Pyla you can do simple job
management, such as stopping, starting or altering a job.
- Admin mode. Pyla can be configured with an Admin user so
you can have access also on other people's jobs.
- 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
script (sample included), on Windows you can use RedMon
(http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/redmon/) or similar programs.
- Ldap addressbook. Pyla can be configured to use Ldap
directories to store fax numbers.
