New Blog Engine in Python


Carl Burks

I rewrote my blog engine in Python instead of PowerShell. It now uses Mustache templates. I went ahead and removed the epub creation. The process takes a lot less time to run now.

I used a few different things this go around

xml.etree.cElementTree - for building a site map

PyStache - for rendering python files

urllib - for pulling down a list of my GitHub repos

Pretty soon I'll post it on Github. I should start posting more frequently after the holidays. Lots of fun projects on the horizon. Makey Makey, Mindstorm Ev3, the ever popular news article collector, and one hundred other ideas bouncing around.
