August 9, 2013Category: IT
The past days I've been trying to find a cloud provider to deploy an app to. So, until docker becomes a bit easier and flynn up and running, I'll stick with one of the known ones, i.e. heroku . I've been trying to get a simple list of heroku deployment steps for a while and after watching a…

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Update: This is an outdated entry.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…

Note: This is a really old post transferred from Laurii for historical and consolidation purposes. I've been experiencing some outage from my hosting service. Apparently, it's getting better. Update : It's almost fixed now.

Sonos sound system

October 31, 2010Category: Hardware
Note: This is a really old post transferred from Laurii for historical and consolidation purposes. We were sick and tired of having to switch on the TV (and the amp) to be able to listen to music from the Popcorn Hour. So I started to investigate what sort of streaming systems are available. The…

Custom saving path for FileField

August 30, 2010
Saving FileFields is pretty annoying anyway (all the manual stuff, saving chunks by hand...). The top bother is actually the limited way of creating paths: In MEDIA_ROOT , only with strftime arguments. While this does limit the number of files in a directory, it's not as customisable as it…
