Django on Dreamhost: An adventure

Sep 01 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at zerokspot.com

Somehow Dreamhost’s server setup must be really strange … For the last 4 hours I tried setting up a dummy Django project on Dreamhost using basically a combination of the tutorial in the Dreamhost WIKI and the tutorial on Djangoproject.com for using Django with FastCGI … but first things first: At home I’m using a prefix setup for all Python libraries I’m using including Django which seems to work quite well … at home.

No explicity expiring cache in Django?

Aug 28 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at zerokspot.com

For the last couple of days I’ve been playing around a little bit with Django, a RubyOnRails like webframework written in Python. Sure, you can compare it to RoR if you want, but in my opinion it has enough unique features to set it apart from the Ruby framework. One thing I’m so far missing though from Django is some of the caching functionality from RoR. Django offers 3 types of caching (from what I’ve learned so far):

Anyone working on/with or just interested in Django coming to LinuxWorld? If so, let me know and we'll see about an informal meetup.

Django is the favourite of Guido van Rossum

Aug 08 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at Nuno Mariz

Django Project

Guido van Rossum said in the latest FLOSS Weekly podcast:

My personal favorite -- and I expect that that will remain a personal favorite for a long time -- is something named Django. ... I highly recommend it.
Django has been my tool for a new project of mine, has been worth it the time spent learning Django and Python(right now my personal favourite programming language). Django preferred setup is Apache with mod_python, this has make my choice easier because I've been always using Apache with PHP. If you want to give it a try(I recommend it), read the Part 1 of the tutorial. And if you have doubts about performance, read this.

Django .95 Is Here!

Jul 30 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at devurandom.org

Yes, Django .95 has just been released. For those who don't run off SVN trunk, there will be some upgrade issues. Read Removing The Magic on the Django wiki carefully. The changes to Django are well worth any upgrade inconvenience. And some things are just plain easier to get done post magic removal, as I found out this week back-porting a Google site map generator app I wrote while running from SVN.

Congratulations to Adrian, Jacob, and all who contribute code for the release!

Acknowledging the Mobile Web with Django

Jul 26 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at Matt Croydon under tags  django mobile python

I was reading up on HowToProvideAlternateViewsForMobileDevices on the Rails wiki this morning and couldn’t help but notice how much easier it is to set up a mobile version of a Django site. At World Online we have stripped-down barebones no frills “all we want are the facts ma’am” versions of all of our sites. They […]

Django/AJAX Beating

Jul 05 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at devurandom.org

James Bennett is taking a bit of a beating for his Django/AJAXsuggestions. A lot of the criticism is unmerited Rails envy, I imagine. Rails has RJS — great! Django is not Rails.

If you want to build more than toy apps, you'll need something more sophisticated than these little server-side helper functions. And if you just want partial page updates or DHTML UI tricks, any JavaScript toolkit can make this quick and painless for you.

I also don't see why when someone says "Django's AJAX support shouldn't look like RJS," people hear, "Django isn't going to include AJAX support." AJAX, for all it's usefulness as a term, is used in many different ways. I think the confusion in this case is due to the same word being used to mean two completely different things.

New Job with Naples Daily News

Jul 04 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at devurandom.org

I've taken a new job with Naples Daily News. I'll be a developer in the new media department building cool stuff with Django. I'm excited about the work and about working with Rob Curley, Eric Moritz, and the rest of the team.

I'll still be Alabama working from home, being that I just bought a house 3 months ago. I'll travel a bit more now, making monthly trips to Naples, which is a really beautiful and interesting city.

I think this is one of the best moves I've ever made. When I first started working with Django, I was so impressed by what I heard about World Online and really wanted to be doing the same kind of work and be in the same kind of environment. Now, I get that chance. How cool is this!

I finish at the library on Tuesday, July 11, and start work with Naples News the next day.

Now Django Powered

Jul 02 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at devurandom.org

I finally got this site converted to Django, more or less. There are a few static pages lying around, but on the whole, I'm Django powered now. It was quite a hack job, of which I'll (maybe) relate later.

My hosting service Jump Domain doesn't really advertise Python or Django support. It can be done, though it's probably not for the faint of heart. Scott with Jump Domain has been ultra helpful and I'll try to talk with him more about what can be done to improve support for Django and Python.

Django Admin interface for a Blog in 5 mins

Jun 13 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at Nuno Mariz

It's so cool with Django:
from django.db import models
from django.contrib.auth.models import User

class Tag(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(maxlength=200, core=True)
    class Admin:
        ordering = ['name']   
    def __str__(self):
        return self.name

    ('Draft', 'Draft'),
    ('Published', 'Published'),
class Post(models.Model):
    author = models.ForeignKey(User)
    title = models.CharField(maxlength=200)    
    summary = models.TextField()
    body = models.TextField()
    created = models.DateTimeField(default=models.LazyDate())
    last_modified = models.DateTimeField(auto_now=True)
    enable_comments = models.BooleanField(default=True)
    tags = models.ManyToManyField(Tag)
    publication = models.CharField(maxlength=32, choices=PUBLICATION_CHOICES, radio_admin=True, default='Published')

    class Admin:
        ordering = ['-created']
        search_fields = ['title']
        list_display = ('title','author', 'created')

Django And The Disappearing Template Tags

May 25 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at Push cx under tags  code django

If you are defining custom template tags, don’t put them in a file named log.py. You’ll be able to {% load log %} fine in your template, but you won’t be able to use your tags. No, this isn’t documented anywhere. I suspect it’s because the admin interface also defines custom tags in a file […]
