  1. DictMixin

    Quite some time ago I gave a little presentation on DictMixin at ChiPy. If you haven’t used DictMixin before, it’s a class that implements all the derivative methods of dictionaries so you only have to implement the most minimal set: __getitem__, __setitem__, __delitem__, and keys. It’s a …

  2. Reflection and Description Of Meaning

    After writing my last post I thought I might follow up with a bit of cognitive speculation. Since the first comment was exactly about the issue I was thinking about writing on, I might as well follow up quickly.

    I wanted a text-substitution language, because I …

  7. Atompub & OpenID

    One of the thinmgs I would like to do is to interact with Atompub (aka Atom Publishing Protocol) stores in Javascript through the browser. Since this effectively the browser itself interacting with the Atompub server, browser-like authentication methods would be nice. But services like Atompub don’t work nicely with …
