Setting up your Mezzanine based site to pull in a feed from Twitter has changed quite a bit over the past few years as the system has evolved. Now its incredibly simple to set up but the documentation is pretty terse and it's not immediately evident how to do it. All you have to do is follow a few simple steps:
So I recently spent a good while recording an incredible screen cast for some documentation I need to create. After finally finishing the recording I was dismayed to find that iShowU had recorded nothing but a GREEN SCREEN. That elicited some colorful language, even if it was just in my head. What the heck happened??!
A few months back on went on a search for the next best e-commerce framework. Of course only open source will do and while I really like the Cartridge plugin for Mezzanine to say Cartridge is in it's infancy is an understatement. But other than Satchmo (who's ship seems to have sailed) there aren't really any good options from the django side. You're pretty much left rolling your own.
Recently I went looking for an alternative to Dropbox. I wanted something that was a little bit more in my control. As I've mentioned before I use Webfaction for most of my hosting needs. There are, in a word, awesome. You may think that Owncloud would be the logical setup step here and I did try that for a while. At first I thought it was great, then it would only connect off and on, then all the files in my internal folders were deleted (luckily I have backups via TimeMachine) and then it wouldn't connect at all. It just felt cludgy. I also tried out Bittorrent sync. That seems to work ok but I also wanted a web available copy so I didn't have to be at a specific computer to get my files.
