Django + JQuery Mobile Quick Start Tutorial

I've uploaded a tutorial and a very minimal library for creating JQuery Mobile sites with Django.  It's actually the first time I've used PyPI's documentation hosting system, mostly because Launchpad doesn't have a web-page hosting mechanism.  The library (django-jqm) is not intended to be a platform for creating "real" sites ...

JQuery Mobile Django Baseline

Playing with a JQuery Mobile baseline template for Django this afternoon. Just a set of templates, urls, static files, etceteras which give a "mobile app-like" base from which to begin development in a new project. I'm not particularly satisfied with it yet; I coded it directly into a "regular" app, and it really should ...

Dumb PyDoc Replacement for PyOpenGL

I have been using "standard" Pydoc (actually slightly hacked) to document PyOpenGL outside the man pages, but PyOpenGL is almost entirely composed of things that don't work well with the standard tools; functions are actually class instances that check for availability before attempting to call, "functions" are defined in "raw" modules then imported into ...

Miscellaneous jQuery Mobile + Django tips

Some little tips on how to make your "normal" Django site work properly under jQuery mobile:

  • as mentioned before, put your JQM setup code into a base template that all of your mobile pages extend, this means that users can go to any "normal" url and still get the jQuery effects loaded
  • create a "content ...

IDE without File|Open or File|Save is... painful

As mentioned a while ago, I switched my desktop from Ubuntu to Kubuntu because Unity was just too half-baked to be used in my setup. That went relatively well, modulo the need to restart 3 times to get the desktop to come up (KDE just hung on login). However, one truly annoying casualty is that ...

jQuery Mobile + Django gets Pleasantly Out of the Way

Have been doing quite a bit of work combining jQuery Mobile with Django for certain (internal) projects.  You can set up the JQM stuff with a few lines in your template, then mostly "forget" about it while developing a regular Django form-based site (though you'll want to use HTML5 widget types).  The only major ...

ARB draw_instanced + ARB texture_buffer_object == Best Sphere Renderer

As mentioned last week, the ARB draw_instanced extension allows you to draw large numbers of the same basic geometric shape with a single rendering call. However, to be useful, you need to pass in per-instance parameters which are used to customize the rendering. With the ARB uniform_buffer_object extension, you can get up to ~200-300 objects ...

No luck on GLSLDevil + PyOpenGL yet

Hit a bug in my ARB buffer texture test-case this morning and decided to try out GLSLDevil to see what's going on in the shader (basically I seem to be getting out the wrong values from my texelFetch() calls).  Long story short, while I can do a bit of hackery to get past some ...
