Persistant SSH connection

Hello,

I am wanting to remote control my PI from work (the Pi is at home)

is it possible to set a command running via a SSH session, and ensure it keeps running even if the SSH window closes so I can come back to it later for instance if building code or downloading a file.

Thanks

Re: Python QT (4 or 5)

i would like to develop on the Pi, also I don't yet have a physical linux box which isn't ideal for development.

I will keep plugging away and see how things get on

Python QT (4 or 5)

Hi, I have no real idea what I'm doing really. I have had an idea to try and create a new desktop environment for myself. The idea I had was a Python/Qt foundation and just build from there. Unfortunately I just don't know where to start. I have the latest Raspbian distro, a "which qt" reveals nothi...

Re: writing my own twitter client

also based on that print result doing a dir(t.user) will offer you options in regards to the user object.

Re: writing my own twitter client

in terms of the already answered part, you could write a log file that has the ID of the tweet in. If it is present in this list, then you will have replied to it. if not then it is new.
