GetPingd | Google Groups


Many web resources provide mechanisms for subscribing to changes in their content. However, this change information is only made available via a polling mechanism.

A number of people have proposed mechanisms for subscribing to updates to pages or feeds, however, a missing element of all these proposals is a subscription mechanism. Sadly, this means that every site supporting this feature will likely end up with a different implementation.

Get Pingd pour la mise à mort de la syndication... (à coups de XRDS, d'Atom et de web hooks, tout un programme)

evserver - Google Code

EvServer is a lightweight http server, created especially to host python WSGI applications. Additionally, it supports little known Asynchronous WSGI extension, which was suggested by Christopher Stawarz. Using this extension it's possible to create an output html response in many data chunks, without blocking the main server process while your application waits for external resources.

Comet the WSGI way.

MovingToDistutils - django-hotclub - the how and why of Pinax's move to distutils - Google Code

Until recently, Pinax had two choices for a given external dependency:

  1. use svn:externals and point to the external dependency's svn repository
  2. include the external dependency code in the Pinax codebase

However, there are problems with this approach:

  1. it largely relies on external dependencies being in svn and this is increasingly not the case (although it was when Pinax started)
  2. it makes it difficult for Pinax itself to move away from svn
  3. there is no management of dependencies between external dependencies, nor between particular projects in Pinax and their individual dependencies

To solve these problems and more, Pinax is switching to a distutils-based approach. This means:

  1. externals dependencies are encouraged to be released as distutil-compliant packages with a valid and put on PyPI
  2. development versions of dependencies can be pulled in in a variety of different ways including from git, hg or bzr repositories

svn:externals are evil

Neil Fraser: Writing: Differential Synchronization

Keeping two or more copies of the same document synchronized with each other in real-time is a complex challenge. This paper describes the differential synchronization algorithm. Differential synchronization offers scalability, fault-tolerance, and responsive collaborative editing across an unreliable network.

Google Open Source Blog: CSSJanus: Helping i18n and LTR to RTL


CSSJanus is CSS parser utility designed to aid the conversion of a website's layout from left-to-right (LTR) to right-to-left (RTL). The script was born out of a need to convert CSS for RTL languages when tables are not being used for layout (since tables will automatically reorder TD's in RTL). CSSJanus will change most of the obvious CSS property names and their values as well as some not-so-obvious ones (cursor, background-position %, etc...).

An exception to the Google rule? | LinuxWorld Community


Google is one of the few large companies that gets one fundamental rule of the Internet: Trying stuff is cheaper than deciding whether to try it. (Compare the cost of paying and feeding someone to do a few weeks of P* hacking to the full cost of the meetings that went into a big company decision.)

Don't overplan something. Just do it half-assed to start with, then throw more people at it to fix it if it works. Worked for every successful Google project from AdWords to Google Maps.
