Don't Repeat Yourself for Bloggers: Dynamic Blog Context in LifeFlow

Programmers talk about DRY, or Don't Repeat Yourself, all the time. Its a strategy for making programming more pleasant, more efficient, and to reduce errors. LifeFlow uses a simple idea, which I have brazenly labeled Dynamic Blog Context, to try to take a few steps toward DRY while writing blogs.

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.

Working on LifeFlow's Public Face


The current version of LifeFlow under progress, 0.91, is focused on improving the public faces of LifeFlow.

Introducting the LifeFlow Editor
