Python Objective-C Bridge Overview by Michael Lynn, Dropbox

Python is an excellent programming language to learn if you’re managing Macs since it’s already built into OS X. But if you really want to supercharge your administration ability with it, Apple includes an extra python Objective-C bridge module which can grant you access to the public (and private) APIs used by developers and Apple themselves to control your machines at even deeper levels.

For more information about PyObjC, see the following web page:
