Wrote another toy WSGI application tonight: wsgiFeedSuck.py. It wraps RSS feeds with a simple WSGI app that displays the titles and summaries.
You can try it out, for the nonce, in CGI mode: here.
I wrote wsgiFeedSuck to learn how to use Mark Pilgrim's excellent feedparser module. Astute examiners of the code will note that I use 'etag', 'modified', AND only check the feed every hour. Yay me ;).
The only real problem I have with the code is the lack of file locking around the shelving. O well. Suggestions welcome.
OK, I'm posting it. Happy? Damned voices, yammering away in my head...
(I do like the fact that Web-based darcs repositories are also Web sites in their own right. Very convenient when you don't want to do any work to "release" something.)
oubiwann, congrats on remembering to X out your password. I didn't, the first time I posted such a script ;).
chromatic, nice enthusiastic article on PostgreSQL. (I especially like the Oracle user's comment at the bottom: "but in our nice shiny expensive database, we've been using this for eons...")
avrietta, I couldn't agree more. At least about the steak. And maybe the single malts. But seriously, these jokers are running Wikipedia on non-ACID databases!? Whoo. You should beat up on me anyway, though, I like my tri-tip marinated. (I can't afford better cuts of meat.) But I do sear it. A few BBQs ago, I let a German cook the meat -- he kept on telling me it wasn't done, until finally I realized he was "searing" it all the way through. He'd already ruined it by then, but luckily he tasted good with the cajun BBQ sauce I like, so I didn't go hungry for long.
