Byteflow

Wordpress is out, Byteflow is in. I was primarily looking for a small, fun codebase to hack on, and WP/PHP was anything but that.

I spent the past few days getting up to speed with Django, and in fact I’ve already submitted several patches against byteflow, so it is definitely quick to get going with.

I’ve also spent quite a while learning how to get around within Mercurial. Maybe i’ll change my mind after doing some more work with it, but I find the usability very poor compared to Darcs. Mercurial Queues are probably the neatest feature, but that too seems to regularly lead to disaster.

I’ve written a WordPress importer as well, which I used to import all the content from my old blog: WXRImporter.py.
