Reddit

August 9, 2008 § Leave a comment

I am not aware at all that Reddit has been rewritten in Python. The python version spawned a web framework called web.py and is open sourced.

The original was written in LISP.

This is old story, but hopefully still entertaining.

Original Desktop Interface: Bumptop

I don’t know about how useful Bumptop user interface is, but for sure it’s cool looking.

From their forum, it seems like Bumptop only works on Windows.

Python Module: Boto

August 7, 2008 § Leave a comment

In short, Boto is a comprehensive API for Amazon Web Services.

It covers:

  • S3
  • EC2
  • Simple DB
  • Mechanical Turk
  • Simple Queue Service

Below is my personal opinions about Boto:

  • The SDB API is very pythonic, easy to understand and easy to use.
  • The SDB API supports multi-threading query calls, very nice.
  • Variable names between SDB and S3 aren’t very consistent, as if it was written by 2 different people. But that’s just syntactical¬† issue.
