Bottle--A Python Web Micro Framework

I was looking for, at the moment, an answer to a question about a minimalist framework for doing a web site and have been surprised. I have used Karrigell a couple of times and was pleased. It is easy to figure out and doesn't get in your way. The word micro doesn't come to mind but it would be a possibility.

I did a bit more looking and found a couple of very interesting options, and Bottle.


Is Merengue the new Drupal?

I have used Drupal for many years. It might even be my fault that started using it. The reason I don't remember is because it was so long ago. I Created using Drupal 4.7 and it still uses Drupal 5. This site uses Drupal 6 and I have been doing development on another site in Drupal 7. I am not trying to suggest I am a Drupal expert, just that I have used it for years for many things.

I started looking at Django ( a few years ago and even did one internal application using it.

Getting Organized with Zim

I am playing with a notes package called Zim. It claims to be wiki-like which makes it pretty interesting.

The usual complaint about Wikis is that the syntax gets in the way. That is, you have to insert syntax (which is usually somewhat different in each Wiki) to get things done. Well, Zim has no syntax or, more accurately, you don't work with it or ever see it. Zim just uses it internally to offer the functionality. While you can't really call it a WYSIWYG, it's close and you don't have to do funny stuff to get the WYSIWYG features.

Did you ever use Wordstar or PCWrite?
