Django is going 1.2

Django Project, a powerful and clean Python Web Framework, is going to relase 1.2 as  the next milestone at the beginning of March.
For the meanwhile, you can grab the Beta2:

As part of the Django 1.2 release process, tonight we’ve released Django 1.2 beta 1, a preview/testing package that gives a little taste of some of the new features coming in Django 1.2. As with all alpha and beta packages, this is not for production use, but if you’d like to try out some of the new goodies coming in 1.2, or if you’d like to pitch in and help us fix bugs before the final 1.2 release (due in April), feel free to grab a copy and give it a spin.

Looking at the release notes we get

  • Object-level permissions
  • Permissions for anonymous users

Development sprints for Django 1.2 will also be taking place at PyCon US 2010, on the dedicated sprint days (February 22 through 25).

Web2Py: a python web framework we like

At we have used plenty of web frameworks.

Giovanni Giorgi used Seaside,  a lot of PHP frameworks, Java Struts, RubyOnRails, and Python Django.

We have started to look for Web2Py, a compact,  easy to learn  python web framework.

From the most notable feature, it runs also on Google App Engine.
Written by an Italian University professor for teaching web development, spots a very clean design, and a robust security infrastructure.
We  suggest it because installation (and upgrading) is a snap.

Let’s take a look to it…

Site Update: Happy new editor!

(First published on 2007-01-20)

Hi all, ObjectsRoot now has correct story ordering ontags view!

I am happy to announce I have just installed tinymce on my site.

TinyMCE is a very nice javascript editor, also used in Drupal. What makes tinymce very nice in my humble own opinion, is its easy installation. You do not need complex init procedure: you just tell tiny you want to edit well textareas, and it will do all for you. Because django  (my web framework for the site) has a bit complex way for handling administration pages, this is good news for by TinyMCE

TinyMCE is a very professional product, and has all the things I like in a text editor.

I remember,  in the dark ages of the 2002, ajax was not yet born.

So in that dark era, I was stunned with a very poor javascript editor product, with a very big license to pay to use it.
I was complex to configure, and a nitghtmare to use.
So I am happy to have a very easy-to-edit blog now, and I will be able to write more and more throughts in a scattered way.
Keep in touch, babies!
