"Canonical has launched a new project called Quickly that aims to simplify the process of developing and deploying Linux applications. It provides a command-line framework for generating code projects, storing changes in version control, building packages, and releasing finished software.

"Quickly uses a template system that allows specialized behaviors to be defined for different kinds of software projects. The default template, which is called ubuntu-project, will help users build applications with Python and Glade. It defines several high-level command operations, including edit, save, dialog, glade, and package. These operations, which are invoked with the Quickly command line tool, will use other software and command line tools to help the user complete the relevant tasks. It serves as a simple command abstraction layer that insulates the user from having to learn and understand the underlying components."
