Site redesign

This article has been retained for hisorical reasons. In this article we refers to blog.Objectsroot.com a site discontinued on August 2008

After some time, I have decided to start redesigning the content and the look of ObjectsRoot.com
I have slightly reduced the tags section, over-simplifying the access to my huge set of articles. With over 100 posts, there is no need of so much tags.
The search engine will help you to find old articles: do not worry anyway, permalinks will remain valid for a long time!

For a short introduction to the new site look, follow this link

In the next weeks you will see a new site look too, clean and clever… like no one before. Stay tuned!
Updated 14 May 2008: Site redesign is in progress. You will find the new site for the 23th of May. Comments are always wellcome!

Updated 21 may 2008: The basic look is finalized, and will not change.

Updated 6 June 2008: Suggested resolution is 1024×768 or higher. The page is dynamically rendered, anyway an 800×600 resolution is discuraged. Fixed some broken links

BWolf first installation

Biblio Wolf (Bwolf for firends) is a webapp app for managing a book collection. BWolf is written in python using the Django web framework, and it is born from a Customer request. BWolf is open source, and you can get a full description here including links to downloads. I will mantain a blog of all the work I will do. In the last two months I set up a Subversion Repository and played a little with Django.

 

After some testing I opted for the SQLite3 DB in this first phase. SQLite is a database featuring quite full support of SQL92. SQLite lacks of some capabilities for manipulating tables (alter table can be used only to add columns) but has transaction, and is embedded. SQLite consume very little resource.

 

Because the database is self-contained in a binary-indipendent file is quite fast to syncronize my developement environment with the test (and in the future, the production).
