I imported my old advogato diary so now this blog goes back to 2000/1/17 17:19:57.
For some reason I didn't blog anything in 2002, though.
I had a few minutes waiting for yum to do its thing and added a couple of easy features:
The SilverCity-based code-block syntax highlighting directive was replaced with a version using Pygment which supports more languages and is (I think) nicer looking... and comes with several styles, as you can see above in the configuration dialog.
Other than that, I added support in the backend to:
Regenerate HTML from RST everywhere
Do the same only on items marked "dirty"
A model thingie that shows if there are posts or stories with RST errors
Some GUI love
I need to make the config dialog support more than one gadget at the same time, though ;-)
I did the tag editor:
The "Guess Tags" button in the composer uses the "Magic words" defined for each tag to give you a starting set, which you can edit later. Still has a few implementation issues (thus the taglessness of this post) but it's almost there.
Using HTMLTidy I made all the HTML validate (as transitional, at least).
Using browsercam I made sure this page works on every decent browser (it looks bad on IE 4.0, and Netscape 6):
Added a feedBox widget that can display as a sidebar any feed that uses FeedBurner's BuzzBoost (see "Latest comments" on the sidebar).
I am now toying with using FeedBurner's API to (optionally) automatically publish all the RSS feeds BartleBlog generates there, thus making this kind of thing more transparent.
Even though it's not really ready, I am switching my blog to BartleBlog.
The idea is that I do blog. So I should be able to focus on what's needful for my own kind of blog. For example, right now, the idea of not being able to tag this post is driving me nuts.
