great old hat

Django Piston

I found a great django framework extension, by virtue of accidentally searching for "django oauth":


If i didn't know pyjamas, I would be terribly excited by this extension. as it is, it's pretty good anyway (because of the json emitter for example, and the bandwidth throttling decorators).

but i find myself feeling… terribly sad, and strangely looking in pity on these excellent pieces of work, because they just look like so much damn hard work to make use of. generating pages server-side that mix data with the display mechanism is so… old! no matter how exciting and fresh the framework and the ideas and thought that goes into the framework, the technique is still "old" and inconvenient.

i feel very strange for having to point this out.
