Colin's Journal: A place for thoughts about politics, software, and daily life.
I’ve just upload the new version of SimpleTAL. This is the version that brings with it significant performance improvements thanks to the refactoring. It also brings some changes to the API, so if you are using an earlier version please take a look at the notes on migrating from an older version. Feedback, as always, is much appreciated.
For anyone reading this and wondering just what SimpleTAL is, here’s a quick description. SimpleTAL is a Python library that provides an easy to use template language for HTML (and XML) documents. By using SimpleTAL it becomes easy to separate the look and feel of a page from it’s content, which makes it very useful for powering interactive web pages. SimpleTAL is a standalone piece of software, so you can use it to produce HTML or XML content from any Python program.
This weblog is produced using SimpleTAL, and is also the reason that I wrote it in first place.
There’s a wonderful little restaurant near us called Citron, which for those living in Toronto who haven’t found it yet, is at 813 Queen Street West. We were there last night (Pear Salad, Coconut Pumpkin Stew, and Melted Chocolate Truffle Cake now that you ask) and discovered that it is going to be temporarily closing for renovation.
The good news is that they will only be closed for a couple of weeks starting shortly after Valentines day, and of course we’ll have to go back to see what the new decor is like…
