(3) Tue Aug 09 2005 15:35 PST: My second developerWorks article, on the Cheetah templating language, is now published. What's more, I'm actually getting paid for these articles! (Once I set up direct deposit with my agent.) This is an intriguing development because I still haven't seen one cent of my advance for the book, or even the paltry sum I've earned so far in Amazon referral commissions.
Even better, I was actually in the market for an XML templating system to use with python and actually thought "I wonder what Leonard Richardson would use."I kid you not. I'm trying to auto-generate playing cards from an SVG template, and figured that you'd have the most elegant template magic for such a problem. What luck!
Nick, that sounds suspiciously like an Iron Game Chef project.
Yes. It's based on Squinky's Johnny Builds Bugs in his Basement stuff. I never finished my Hobo game, but I was "SupaZubon" when I was in the running.I have a system I'm working on now, but... shhhh!
