BartleBlog

A desk­top blog­ging tool for the dis­crim­i­nat­ing nerd

Introduction

Bartle­Blog was my blog­ging tool. I used it to pub­lish this blog.

You don't want to use it any­more. You want to use Niko­la

Hi, Roberto !

I'm very happy to visit your website, I think the Bartheblog software you wrote is exactly what I had in mind (to be short: out-of-band writing, using the ReST syntax I love, static page generation, with both blog and "normal" website support, with fat GUI client for others "normal" users).
The point is that I'm absolutely new to python, and I don't even know how to run your software. Could you help me ? Just a few lines in your description page, describing what to run, how to fill pages, etc. As your software, once again, sounds really interesting to me, here is a deal: if you are ok, I can try and write some doc about it (kind of "bartleblog for dummies" :)).
Hope you will accept the proposition.

Ok, you get the sources from googlecode, then run

python bartleblog.py

from the folder where the sources are. And we'll take it from there :-)

If it fails, you tell me the error, I tell you how to fix it.

But the right way is to do it by email. So contact me!

Hi Roberto,

Nice job, I just tried to launch your app (I took the svn) and it complains :

C:Documents and SettingskibBureauBartleBlogBartleBlogui>python bartleblog.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "bartleblog.py", line 14, in
import BartleBlog.backend.dbclasses as db
ImportError: No module named BartleBlog.backend.dbclasses

Strange as dbclasses.py exists...

Roberto Alsina / 2007-07-17 16:21:

Yes, very strange.

Try setting PYTHONPATH to where bartleblog.py is. Email me if it still doesn't work.

My fault,

I was running the file barteblog.py inside BartleBlogBartleBlogui.

But I've got problems too now. Here's the output :

%-------------------
C:Documents and SettingskibBureauBartleBlog>python bartleblog.py

%-------------------

I've got a similar project, but to create documentations with reST and Qt4. Maybe we can help eachother ?

I saw you've tried to set a reST highlighter, I've got a pretty one for Python if you want...but like you, I had problems parsing reST.

You can mail me at kib2(at)free.fr if you're interested.

See you,
Kib.
