Clone wiki

Python 3 Patterns & Idioms / Home


Broke my leg a week ago; required surgery and I'm on pain meds so not exactly thinking clearly. I still need to do work to prepare for my "Metaprogramming" presentation at Pycon (which I have high hopes of attending) in a few weeks, so that's where you'll see the most activity once I start reducing the need for pain meds.

I've not used the wiki before so I don't know whether it broadcasts automatically when you make a change. I guess we'll see.

Wiki features (left in for reference)

This wiki uses the Creole syntax, and is fully compatible with the 1.0 specification.

The wiki itself is actually a hg repository, which means you can clone it, edit it locally/offline, add images or any other file type, and push it back to us. It will be live immediately.

Go ahead and try:

$ hg clone

Wiki pages are normal files, with the .wiki extension. You can edit them locally, as well as creating new ones.

Syntax highlighting

You can also highlight snippets of text, we use the excellent Pygments library.

Here's an example of some Python code:

def wiki_rocks(text):
	formatter = lambda t: "funky"+t
	return formatter(text)

You can check out the source of this page to see how that's done, and make sure to bookmark the vast library of Pygment lexers, we accept the 'short name' or the 'mimetype' of anything in there.
