At Last, I Grok Pylons

Sunday, 23 July 2006

After alternately being excited and hitting walls with Pylons, in a moment of clarity, Pylons suddenly makes sense to me.

SQLAlchemy. myghty and webhelpers always stuck me as being very powerful, but I wasnt able to produce anything which "worked" without getting frustrated over small problems which stopped the flow completely. But, the persistence seems to have paid off; suddenly, hours of pouring over documentation has started making sense.

Just keep the momentum going, i've started to this site , written in textpattern to Pylons. You can see the work in progress - I'm calling the port Chiselman, after textpattern's logo.

I'm not thinking of writing another "blog" software. I hope to contribute some code snippets to the pylons cookbook from whatever I learn.
