I’ve been blogging for a while now, but I never bother to figure out how pingback works.

In short, pingback uses link element and XML-PRC for notifying the recipient.

Python Weblog Engine

October 29, 2008 § Leave a comment

Yes, my blog is WordPress service, which is PHP shop. But soon I will have a need to install a blog engine on my own. I would rather have the engine written in Python.

The thing is, there are only a few of them out on the internet:

One of them is PyBloxsom. Such a difficult name to remember. It is file based, a bit different than typical setup. It runs as CGI application or WSGI application or maybe mod_python.

Another one is Django Blog Engine, using SQLite and Django framework. Seems reasonable…

On the other side of my brain, I’d rather have an even simpler blog engine on top of cherrypy and mysql.

So, I up for 2 choices write my own, or Django Blog Engine since PyBloxsom is a bit too funky. If readers know a simple blog engine written on top of cherrypy and mysql, please tell me because I’m not looking forward to writing a blog engine.

Where Am I?
