Weeknotes: Mainly Datasette 0.50

10th October 2020

Most of what I’ve been up to this week is covered in Datasette 0.50: The annotated release notes and Git scraping: track changes over time by scraping to a Git repository.

I just pushed out Datasette 0.50.1 to fix a nasty broken link bug in 0.50.

I recorded a 12 minute video talk for JupyterCon: Using Datasette with Jupyter to publish your data. That will be streamed on Monday and I’ll be answering questions and hanging out during the online conference.

I started Git scraping CA fires data to simonw/ca-fires-history and NHS risk venue alerts to simonw/nhs-risky-venues.

I had a pull request accepted to httpx adding raw_path support to the ASGI request emulation layer. I’ll be using that in Datasette as soon as the next httpx version is released.
