Thanks also to:
- My loving and supportive wife of five years.
- The Python programming language, and the many people who dedicate their time and intellect to improving it.
- Joey Bratton for his Django-Based Blog on Google App Engine Tutorial. This blog's first iteration employed Django, but alas does so no longer. Django can be used with App Engine; it's just a bit more work than it's worth at this point.
- Bill Katz for sharing his near-complete mastery of App Engine.
- Rodrigo Moraes for his implementation of a pagination technique discussed here.
- Nick Johnson for readily offering gems from his vast store of knowledge.
- Trent Mick for his python-markdown2. Markdown, if you're curious, has been described as "a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. Markdown allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, then convert it to structurally valid XHTML (or HTML)."
- BlueprintCSS for their CSS templates. One of which was modified to style this site.
And because everybody likes a code sample, here's how I'm using Trent Mick's markdown2:
from lib.markdown2 import markdown def md2_to_html(content): ''' convert markdown to html using markdown2 ''' if content: content_html = markdown(content, extras=['code-color']) return content_html else: return 0
Then to highlight your Python-source, you:
- indent four spaces and type
- indent your entire code block by four spaces.
Thanks for reading!
What is Markdown darling?
When are you going to add more things? Maybe what you did today...it's blog with no entries....do you really want me to start putting here the beauties of being a programmers wife??? ;-)
