So, I’ve begun down the road of reinventing LinuxLaboratory.org using Django. For the moment, I’m mostly starting out using the blog application from the newly released second edition of “Practical Django Projects”, and there’s no CSS or fancy design going on yet, but I have a nice admin interface for creating posts, managing categories and tags, etc., and I’ve created some basic templates that do enough that I can see things working.
I will eventually add all of the old content (mostly system administration and scripting articles I wrote for O’Reilly, Linux.com, and others over the years) back into the site, but I started with the blog so that I could share my progress and (when I enable comments) get feedback and tips as I move along.
There’s no RSS feed yet, either, but that’s coming as well. You can follow along for the moment by just going to the site, or I’ll post short summaries of what’s going on here.
