Pywmgeneral is a python module that will help you develope WindowMaker dockapps in python. It is mostly a wrapper around the functions from the popular wmgeneral.c, but some new functions are added too.
It also contains the Python written module pywmhelpers.py which contains functions to aid the development of wm dockapps. This module contains python functions that wrap up the functions which the extension module provides.
They ease up argument passing and give nicer return values. Some additional functions, like help for handling a simple configuration file is also available. This module is better documented than the pywmgeneral.
It is adviced to only use pywmhelpers and not touch the pywmgeneral module directly at all. For information about how to use the module, see the documentation in pywmhelpers.py. It is also possible to import it in the interactive interpreter and issue 'help(pywmhelpers)'.
