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 […]

Love/Hate

Mar 18 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at Glenn Fanxman

Every day that I spend messing with python and django, I learn something new or find simpler ways of doing things than I've done them in the past. Tonight I've been experimenting with Django's templating language. I've been building my tag libraries to augment the django's general purpose templating language and data filters for a while now, but today I started really poking around its eqivalent of ObjectGraphNotationLanguage. The stuff I'm doing is really going to change the way we build stuff at work. At the same time, there are a lot of nasty annoyances/bugs/oversights that are hard to believe. Still, for development it kicks Java J2EE ass any day. I joke at work that django either rocks or sucks depending on whether it is an odd or even hour. It's almost 4 am now, so I guess I should turn in while it still rocks.

Django Gets Transactions

Mar 01 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at Push cx under tags  code databases django web

Jacob Kaplan-Moss added transaction support to the magic-removal branch of Django just a few minutes ago. It’s one of the many changes to come out of the sprint. Usage will look something like this (based on Jacob’s docs and chatting with him in #django-sprint):   from django.db import transaction   @transaction.commit_manually def view(request): # you […]

Versioning: The Next Big Thing

Feb 28 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at Push cx under tags  code databases django math web

In the web development world, anyways. So, in the grand scheme of things, maybe not a huge deal to anyone else. Versioning is going to be one of the biggest problems and opportunities there is in web development, and it's going to take us at least five years to get it right.

Leaving MT

Feb 27 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at Glenn Fanxman

After all this time with MT, I've decided to go my own way. If you've ever come to the same decision, then you know that MT's export is a pretty lame format that doesn't include all of the information you might need if you migrating to another system. The solution I've come to is to create a MT template that exposes everything as a single xml document. Here's what I'm using so far:

    <$MTBlogName$>
    
    <$MTBlogURL$>

Clickable Bylines

Feb 18 2006 [Archived Version] □ Published at Matt Croydon under tags  django journalism python

Clickable bylines are the new black in online journalism according to this post and related comments at Poynter. I have to admit that I thought that this was the norm rather than the exception, since this had been the case at the Journal-World long before I arrived in Lawrence. A few days ago Dan asked […]

Over the past few days I’ve been spending some free time and downtime tweaking mobile.kusports.com and adding a couple of really cool (IMHO) features. We send out a ton of cel phone updates during each game, but I really wanted to bring our awesome live stats to mobile devices. The first order of business was […]
