me, 2.0: jose nazario
beauty and the street
more fromage updates
the picture above is of the cheese counter at zingerman's, an upscale deli
located here in ann arbor. it's close to the new offices, and the
weather was nice, so i took a stroll there and got myself a lunch
and some chocolates. good stuff at zingerman's, they're a local
landmark. too bad they're somewhat expensive, otherwise lunch would
be taken there more often. like any good deli, you'd better be
patient, hungry, and willing to take some chances. at zingerman's
you'll find long lines for the great food and exotic tastes, but the
food selections don't last for long in some cases.
what's all of this doing here? why the cheese counter at a deli? i've
been doing a bunch of fromage hacking lately, too.
fromage is the blog/wiki system i pieced together from the base of
CheeseWiki by ian henderson. among the many things added are better
navigation, atom 0.3 support, and some nicer layout in places. it's
nowhere near 1.0, and there are no files released yet, but it is
in CVS on sourceforge. if you do use it, you should look at edit.php
and delete.php and remove them, to prevent others from uploading or
deleting arbitrary blog entries. the more i use it, the more i find
features i need or usage patterns that are worth throwing in there.
the to do list for 1.0 still remains:
if you do any of this, send a patch against the CVS code. don't tell me you
will, just do it. the benefits of fromage over other blog systems is
no needed database, a totally free license, and relative ease of use.
it's just less featured than other blogs out there right now ...
- CSS support. matthew finlayson worked some in but hasn't sent in
any patches. it looks great with CSS support for colors and layout, i'd
like to make that part of the base install
- an installer, which i need to work on.
- some form of blog authentication to make it so that you or others can
post to the site.
- documentation for the markup language.
