Sweet and Lowdown
Today, I have mostly been trying out the Django framework. Having installed MySQL, Subversion and Apache 2 on Ubuntu, I got the development version from the repository and installed. Then I followed the tutorial. I’ve never used Python before, but I had little trouble with the tutorial (what trouble I did have was largely self-generated.) Django’s easy to use and the automatic admin stuff is very impressive. I need to try something a little more complicated to see how easy it is to create a “real” web application, but it’s definitely worth a look.
(OK – so the title’s a little tenuous: in Sweet and Lowdown, Emmett Ray is a big fan of Django Reinhardt.)
