This is a simple example application for demonstrating some modern
practices for managing your Python project: using
manage your dependencies, writing your docs in Sphinx,
hosting your code on bitbucket, using
Travis CI for continuous integration, hosting your
docs on Read the Docs, running the actual service on
Heroku, and publishing it on PyPI (see
The Hitchhiker's Guide to Packaging for details).
The actual functionality of the app is straight-forward: it's a web application that displays a random Python tip every time you visit the page (properly attributed, of course). To power the site, I use Flask and SQLAlchemy.
NOTE: This is highly tentative. Any or all of these things may never happen, and certainly not in a timely fashion.
- Redesign the site.
- Package and publish the app to PyPI.
- Write some decent docs and post them to Read the Docs.
- Use pjax to request another random tip in-place.
- Create an HTML5 app for smart phones.
