Of course, ten minutes after the stream, I get it working. I wasn't setting the scale of the pattern correctly, which made the sprite not show up *and* made cairo_fill really slow.

One of the most underrated pros of Python is the standard library. You can do SO MUCH in Python without adding a single dependency. I wish Rust and JS were like that.

Libshumate's first alpha was released a couple weeks ago, and one of the new features makes it easier to embed map widgets. If your app needs a map, ShumateSimpleMap makes it a snap!

Now that the corny rhyme is over here's the blog post explaining it all:

Tuesday at 6pm UTC I'll be streaming some work on libshumate. I'm creating a new widget to make simple uses easier (e.g. embedding a map in Fractal).
