Distraction-free writing with PyRoom

(Other stories by Jack Wallen)

"There are times when I need to concentrate on work – on writing. For those times I need to get rid of all the distractions. With Linux there are a few ways to do this. I could go to console login and use a text-based editor so there is no GUI around me to interrupt. Or I could make life a bit easier and install an application that will help to get rid of those distractions.

"One application that does this job very well is PyRoom. PyRoom is a simple to use application that serves as a text editor that takes up your entire screen. There are no window decorations, or minimize buttons, or anything that will get the application out of the way – unless you close the application. So for those who need a distraction from the distractions, PyRoom just might do the trick."
