Welcome to PyTown. I don’t actually use Python much for its own sake, so the stuff here will most likely be about things that use Python, such as Mailman and Django.
- Django: Beyond the SQL
- Django is a great application framework for Python and web applications. You can use it to greatly speed up your database and application development both on the web and on the command line. This tutorial is currently a very rough draft; it probably won’t be very useful without the assistance of someone who knows Django running the tutorial. If I ever run this tutorial a second time, I’ll probably update it with screenshots to make it more usable for individuals.
- Modifying Mailman
- It’s not that difficult to add new features to Mailman, as long as you know where to look and remember that you’ll have to redo your changes after every upgrade.
- Parsing JSKit/Echo XML comments files
While I’m not a big fan of remote comment systems for privacy reasons, I was willing to use JSKit as a temporary solution because they provide an easy XML dump of posted comments. This weekend, I finally moved my main blog to custom comments; here’s how I parsed JSKit’s XML file.
- Put a relative clock on your Desktop with GeekTool
There are a lot of desktop clocks that show the absolute time. But sometimes you just want to know if the time is today, or yesterday, or two days ago. Here’s how to do it with Python and GeekTool.
- Multiple tables on the same command
The way the “random” script currently stands, it does one table at a time. Often, however, you have more than one table you know you’re going to need. Why not use one command to rule them all?
- Easier random tables
Rather than having to type --table and --count, why not just type the table name and an optional count number?
- Programming for Gamers: Choosing a random item
If you can understand a roleplaying game’s rules, you can understand programming. Programming is a lot easier.
