Here are some short snippets which examine how I modified django-springsteen to run on and off the Google App Engine without requiring external dependencies.
This brief final segment of the Epic PyObjC tutorial series looks at a few statistics from the series, and also I recommend a few resources for moving forward.
Another problem I ran into at work recently is how to include versioned static files into a PHP frontend. Here I take a look at a couple of possible approaches, although neither of them are particularly overwhelming in their beauty, they seem to be workable.
A quick look at how I setup my server to be listen for Twitter direct messages and provide a very minimal degree of remote administration.
Comprehensive instructions on installing and setting up a local deployment of LifeFlow (for those who are moderately in the Django know). This should be all you need to get started using LifeFlow, but I will have another entry soon detailing the little tricks and tips that make LifeFlow helpful.
While adding SyntaxHighlighter support to Pitance, I went ahead and put together a very simple Erlang brush.
A very rough initial sketch at plotting words and word structures using Processing. At this point nothing too interesting, but hopefully I'll clean it up and use it to plot some interesting content in the near future.
This is the new home of an old entry from the now defunct original incarnation of *Irrational Exuberance*. These entries are almost two years old, and haven't necessarily aged well, but maybe that's a good thing. This was my first written thoughts on using Django. Kind of funny to look back on them years later.
A look at extending the Python Markdown library. It happens to be an extremely well written library, so extending it is a bit more fun than it ought to be. Take a look.
This is a simple command line tool, implemented in Python, which makes it easy to use JSON and Python data structures as the data-source of CouchDB documents. Handles bulk and individual submission, and has a handful of command-line options (specify hostname, port, path, etc).
