Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


ANNOUNCEMENT: bzero v0.10 now available

A message to all two or three of its loyal users: bzero v0.10 is out ;-)

The main change is that you can now create files under ~/.bzero/(blogname)/site/ and it will render them with the '' template (look in the /usr/local/lib/bzero/templates or ~/.bzero/(blogname)/templates/ directory) and upload them on top of your blog.

This lets you do more interesting things with your blog. For example, creating a directory called ~/.bzero/(blogname)/site/stories/ and putting .txt files in there will give you (more or less) Radio-style 'stories'.

Note: the files have to end in '.txt', and have to have lines at the top saying:

#title 'insert title here'
#date "today"

Those have to be right at the start of the file, and the title and date have to be valid Python strings -- "my title" and '2002-11-15' are OK. If you want to write a quote or an apostrophe, you can say, for example, "phil's title" or 'phil\'s title'.)

Here's what they look like when they get up to your site.
