New feeds for Project hosting on Google Code. Finally! I’ve been wanting these ever since Google Code launched. Should make it much easier to integrate personal projects hosted on Google Code in to tumblelog style sites. # 21st July 2008, 9:45 pm

The basics of creating a tumblelog with Django (via) Ryan Berg suggests having a StreamItem model that links uses a GenericForeignKey to link to other content types, then using signals to cause a StreamItem to be created for every other model type. I should switch to doing that on this blog: at the moment I have to query three separate tables to build the tumblelog part which results in messy code for ordering and pagination. # 24th June 2008, 11:09 am
