GPX Viewer in Debian \o/

So as I’m trying to make an effort to start being more productive again, I’ve kicked this off by packaging my python application, GPX Viewer, for Debian. Last year, I created GPX Viewer to read GPS trace files in the GPX format, calculate some stats, and display the trace on a map.

I started packaging it for Debian/Ubuntu last summer, but sort of forgot about it. But at the weekend I finished it off and submitted it to the Python Applications Packaging Team, where a Debian developer (Piotr Ożarowski) kindly reviewed my packaging, advised of a few tweaks, and then sponsored my package for the repositories.

And it’s as simple as that. It’s now nicely in the repositories:

Now, what shall I package next? 🙂

Hi Andrew, thanks for this little tool, it’s just what I was looking for (almost)! It would be nice if different tracks were drawn in different colours so that I can see which one is which (for tracks that overlap). If I get some time I’ll see if I can make the change.

I was looking for a GPX viewer and I just test your package gpxviewer in wheezy and it works great.
Thanks for your work!

Hi Andrew, I was wondering, do you know the reason why gpxviewer depends on xdg-utils OR python-gnome2? I am especially intrigued by the gnome-related dependency; since I have given up on GNOME almost a year ago and have been using XFCE since, I am not keen on pulling in all sorts of deps on gnome stuff. I know the OR means it can miss when xdg-utils is there, but why is it there in the first place?

Knowing about this is also in particular benefcial if yolur generator breaks down, butt
generally, with one thig as straightforward
and as trustworthy as that, the odds of that happening are prett low in the finish
off the day. All of this caan move around when you start up the generator and will permit you to
in fact find ways and indricates that you can know about
how this iis going to operate. Another offers spring and fall garden filling, gravel driveway
maintenance and grading, smoothening of the driveway, drivway improvement, moving earth, spreading rocks, landscape material spreading, and
ttree planting and shrub planting.
