Often the Django Admin should look a little different for the sake of your users or for the sake of yourself (running multiple django sites with identical looks and titles can be such a pain). Often users don't know what Django is, and it takes ages to explain, and even …Read the rest of this entry »
In the Django documentation we see the following:
When you're manually logging a user in, you must call authenticate() before you call login().
That's all really nice, because it makes sure that all your authentication backends are tried out; but if you want a really quick remedy for getting the …Read the rest of this entry »
I have a feedback tab that's blocking vital content on a website. Here's how to alter the style of the Uservoice Feedback Tab -- for instance the vertical offset: You have to insert this AFTER your widget js code, so that it will effectively overwrite the CSS declarations generated by …Read the rest of this entry »
Here's a simple addition to markItUp, that will prompt the user for a footnote number, a footnote text and then insert the number after the selection and the footnote text at the end of the full text. As handy extra feature, the plugin will save the previous entered footnote and …Read the rest of this entry »
UPDATE! This is going to be redundant in Django 1.2, in which you can add DATE_FORMAT to your django.po files.
I've often been frustrated that using settings.DATE_FORMAT does not give a localized date. Granted that the name of a month may be localized, but the format string does not change. …Read the rest of this entry »
It was bothering me that all the wikis I tried, all had either errors, feature lacks, too many dependencies or were simply unmaintained. So I decided to create yet another one. Curiously, the third hit when googling 'django wiki' is Create a wiki in 20 minutes. Luckily that's not …Read the rest of this entry »
DPH is a work-in-progress, and not everything is yet easy to realize. But you should still prepare yourself as a Haskell programmer, because this is really where Haskell can set off into uncharted areas of popularity and innovation.
As an exercise for a programming course, I developed a spell …Read the rest of this entry »
There's still some work to do on the full screen plugin for Rhythmbox, but the current version is very usable indeed. The latest addition is scrolling by hovering the track list.
I changed the display from a normal fixed table with 3 tracks to a gtk.Layout with a gtk.VBox containing …Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes it's an improvement and sometimes it's an over-commercialized pile of crap. Whatever it is, it's usually a reinvention.
Blogging + Technocrati + A feed reader = Usenet
OSX - A proper app. security layer = Vista
iGoogle = Windows Live + Interesting Feeds - Commercial Feeds

This post is for everyone who's realized that Django power does not come from the ability to easily write all the logic yourself -- rather it's the ability to integrate apps with each other, yet only messing about with your own source tree, and not the apps you've downloaded. And …Read the rest of this entry »
In 2008 I wrote a bachelor thesis together with Michael Werk. The subject was P2P filesharing through a filesystem, and it's available in Danish here. Currently it needs to be further developed with respect to security and a few features, but we ended having a usable prototype. A demonstration …Read the rest of this entry »
I've been coding a lot of ASP.NET lately using the whole Microsoft portfolio of dev tools, and I'm in total shock. I had expected to hate it, but not from rational reasoning, but rather because they made it. I thought it was sleek enterprise level stuff. But I was wrong... …Read the rest of this entry »
This MUST be a common issue for international developers: We use some geeky English name for our application and afterwards find that the translated admin index looks a little silly in the eyes of our native speaking users. Apparently a patch has been accepted in the Django dev version, but …Read the rest of this entry »
What's really nice in Django is the gettext implementation and the _ convention. But when running django-admin.py makemessages we're not generating any translations for dynamic values such as field values. So let's say that we have a model and we'd like what's in it to be displayed in a translated …Read the rest of this entry »
I did a Google search and since nothing came up, I'm writing this little tip on creating your own CMS by extending Django's flatpages. What's good about flatpages is that they're included in Django and has some basic code to get you started. But clearly they're not enough if you …Read the rest of this entry »
You're totally welcome to copy the code.... just remember it's GPL :D The game is pretty simple.

I don't have a rating system... but if I did "The impossible leap in one hundred small steps" would score X/X where X is the highest possible rating.

A lot of criticism has rained upon this campaign. Especially on the net on sites like digg.com and in the Mac community. People simply saw Apple as "green already" and thought of Greenpeace as attention-grabbers. Now that Steve Jobs has written that they're disclosing their policy people are even more …Read the rest of this entry »
