    There is an interesting discussion going on over at github. What is better suited for #etl in #tm1#tm1py or TurboIntegrator?
    I already made clear that I think #python is the future for tm1. What are your thoughts on that? Feel free to comment here or on github directly.

    Hi Christoph

    I agree with you, I've been playing around with #tm1py and can really see the potential here.  

    Just recently I was working on a process where I wanted to extracte data to a text file through a series of sub-processes.  However as there's no way to append to an existing text file (it gets overwritten), I had to introduce convoluted logic to pass the data back through a global variable to a different process which wrote the file. Stuff like that is much easier in python.

    Yes Errol, I wholeheartedly agree. Many things are much easier with Python. If you had a lightbulb moment, you can now share it on the new blog TM1py Tales. Will share a couple of stories their soon too.
