Get most recent modification date for a folder in python

May 27, 2013Category: Software
Finding out when a directory was most recently modified should be relatively easy; just perform a dir or a ls -l and you should have it. Sometimes you actually do, but not always (I remember my assembly days when I would write cool programs to manipulate the FAT information on a disk). The most…

Proper python versioning

May 21, 2013Category: Software
The past few days I was performing an initial deployment on a new cloud provider. During my initial runs, I have discovered a couple of snags in my applications (migration issues etc.) I've noticed that performing repetitive builds of my apps would yield the same numbers and there was no uniform way…

Improve S3Boto Django-Storages Performance with Custom Settings

May 13, 2013Category: Software
Django-storages is a great piece of software. It provides an uniform API for all kind of file storage backends, including Amazon's S3 . I use it for storing assets (the /static/ and /media/ ) for my django app. However, particularly with the /static/ assets, I've noticed firebug / yslow…

Deploy django application with private dependencies on dotcloud

January 28, 2013Category: Software
Update: This is an outdated entry. DotCloud went to cloudControl , which joined ExoScale These days I'm trying to deploy an application on a something quicker than my shared host ( dreamhost.com ). Not that there's anything wrong with this provider (this blog is on it), but the latency is a bit…

Following is a quick tutorial on how to create/use a web service (WS) client with wsimport. Recently, I have been playing with creating a client to a WS using wsimport . Why wsimport? Because I've hass the WS server (using AXIS ) and a bunch of source code generated using AXIS too. For my purpose…

DBus and Qt programming - part 2

March 26, 2007Category: Software
Note: This is a really old post which was originally published in 2007. Stuff may have changed since both with Qt and D-BUS The D-Bus translation First, note the "arg0" annotation, required for the struct type: This actually helps the qdbusxml2cpp to typ-ify the generated code. On the client…

DBus and Qt programming

March 22, 2007Category: Software
For the past few days I've been trying to get more complex data sent via D-Bus. As one would say here in Ireland: Je'zus H. Christ Playing with python was easy. There are lots of examples on communicating complex data structures. But with Qt... It's a bit more complex, because there are only a set…

Some updates...

February 15, 2007Category: Software
Note: This is a really old post transferred from Laurii for historical and consolidation purposes. First message! I've got my first D-BUS message sent from the style UI to the server. It's an "add style" message, but there's not much beyond this progress. The upside is that I think the D-BUS…

Qt4 IDEs

December 4, 2006Category: Software
