I'm not happy with the instructions there in the Zim wiki. It's
great that Nathan wrote up that mailing list post and/or the
wiki page as a workaround for the problem, but I'm not
comfortable integrating that into the official Windows build
process.



1. It references a Windows Python+binary package for PyGTKSpell
hosted rather informally by the GRAMPS project. I would prefer
to depend on a build-from-source recipe than the corner of
another project's support wiki which may disappear.



2. The GRAMPS Python package for PyGTKSpell is for Python 2.6,
which was end-of-lifed a year ago. I build with Python 2.7
only.



Maybe I can get to doing this right for the next Zim release.
We'll see.



A higher priority for me is to stop using Py2exe and switch to
cx_Freeze or PyInstaller. I want to start the build process
from scratch, using either a fresh virtualenv or a fresh VM,
installing all possible dependencies using only pip, and then
filling in other dependencies -- and finally using one of the
newer Windows exe builders. This may or may not make it easier
to solve the problem of how to include PyGTKSpell.



(In fact when I was simply exploring my options tonight, the
PyInstaller web site was borked. Is this project still alive? I
couldn't get past the home page earlier, and now the home page
won't load.)

Hi Stephen,

There is a description how to get it running here:

Brendan: do you maybe have a plan to include it in the
installer as well?

Regards,

Are there are plans for further attempts at Windows spell check
integration? I love Zim but that is a real downer to have
missing. If there is not, could anyone point me in the right
direction for what might work so I could try myself?

(If this is the wrong place to email, I apologize)
