So today I’ve been learning Python. With a combination of the Official Python Tutorial and Dive into Python the first part of Aquatancies – my web-based personal RSS reader – is working. It has categories! It has ETag support! It sings! It dances! It has gradients rendered by SVG! Or not. Actually, it generates ESF-style article files which will be read by the PHP front end.

All code will be released, natch.

Python is nice. I’ve yet to delve into the more complicated aspects of it’s existance, (How do you reverse an expression anyway? if ! class.method(argument): doesn’t work), and I’m sure that there are far better ways to do what I’m doing, but on the whole it appeals to me 🙂
