Subterranean Explorations, part trois: The Change Things More

Greetings fellow Subway-ologists! If you recall our last two installments, please un-recall them because everything is different now. Better, if you will. Ahem, yes. Quite.

In part two, we learned about lovable little widgets. Oh! Who could forget those cute little snippets of Cheetah templates ready and able to jump to attention at a moment's notice?

Well, forget them, they're dead and hopefully buried. Get over it. Views can include other views so there wasn't really a need for them anyway. Pesky things.

And in part the first, I revealed the wonders of the docstring view. Pure simplicity and brilliance, but sadly lacking the power of the file based species who could extend other views.

Well, forget that, docstring views can now do that too. Excelsior!

And speaking of all things views, compiled views are now tidily tucked away so as to be unseen. They live in an app/views/.compiled directory and I'm quite happy about it. No more view droppings scattered about the pallor, no sirree.

Subway is nearing another milestone release, and the rumors have it that a "lesscode" 1.0 might not be too far behind. Got to beat the competition and all.

Until next time. Soon?


A part time Python job with YT

I'm switching to half time work in November (and there was MUCH rejoycing!) so we need someone to pick up all my slack. We need someone with these kinds of skills:

* Python, python, python, python, spam and python
* Web Applications (We use CGI and Subway currently, but TurobGears is close enough <wink>)
* Databases (MySQL, and the MySQLdb python module)
* Asynchronous programming (Twisted and/or Threads)

The job is in Philadelphia at the University of Pennsylvania, and we prefer someone who can be at the office as much as possible. This is a part time and temporary position.

Still reading? Excellent!

If you, or someone you know is interested, get that resume to spamfilter@macspeno.com. And feel free to ask any questions about the job either here or via mail.

Take care.

P.S. yes, that's my real email address.


Speno on Rails!

No relation.

I wonder if they'd ever let me drive one of those things...
