Yesterday I took some time to compile a short list of features I
am implementing in Zenbo the next few days. I have a big list what
Zenbo should be able to do when I release version one and even a
list for version two. Zenbo will be used for two new projects so
the features needed for those have priority.
This is one of the features I really want for Hopelesscom. Writing
posts about python, coding and sometimes stuff that involves the
command line without syntax highlighting just sucks.
Currently I have some problems filtering the ‘code’ tags but that
is just because I have not used regex for some time.
I believe that pygments ‘guess_lexer’ should be fine but there is
a chance that it will sometimes fail. Adding a mark what language
should be used is not the worst idea I had while implementing
After generating a page there should be three things happening.
- checking every link if there is a file in the right folder
- deploying the page
- checking every link if it works
I see some performance issues with this one. Crawling a large page
two times could take some time. I am not sure if I will just check
the links before deploying since I do not believe that there can or
will be issues with broken links or files after uploading the site.
Okay I know that this sentences sounds really stupid and that I
will now run in some deployment issues the next few days,…
I really want to migrate my business blog (german only) to
Zenbo. There is currently no archive on hopelesscom since I want
to merge the past three ones together. But on my other blog I want
to continue writing without anyone noticing – beside the new layout.
Exporting to an XML file is no problem but sadly there are some
characters that would need a definition. minidom and pyxml throw
an exception while loading the file.
I am not sure if I should write a definition, just replace the parts
that do not work or look for another option to parse the file. I
fear that this will take some time.
Before migration my other blog I want a plugin for tags and / or
categories. And I want a beautiful one not just one file for
The idea is one file with a page name, url, all tags and some
If you are using and working with the web for more than 6 or 7
Every browser implemented it another way, most of the time it did
nothing useful that improved the usability experience and it just
did not work. Times luckily changed.
I am looking into the option to change my workflow a little bit.
Git Flow implementing an easy way for Vincent Driessen’s
branching model. If you do not know what I am talking about take
a look at Jeff Kreeftmeijer’s post.
I had some problems with branching and merging and I do not know
why I ran into them. But the main point is that git flow would force
and assist me to have a clean repository structure. There are far
Vim vs. TextWrangler
I have to admit: I switched back to vim. I still like TextWrangler
for writing posts but I just cannot stand coding with it. I do not
know if I just miss modal editing, if I miss the customization or
if I am just used to FuF and other stuff I used for years now.
But coming home to vim just felt natural again. I still do not believe
that modal editing is the best thing since sliced bread but I can stand
