It’s just data

Portable Skills vs Portable Code

Dare Obasanjo: I plan to build a meme tracker in Python hopefully by combining code from RSS Bandit and [OSS licences permiting] Sam Ruby’s Mememe code.

I will commit to ensuring that license is not an issue, but realistically you might want to pick an example that doesn’t depend so heavily upon libxml2 and HTTP, let alone depends so heavily on the aggressive normalization that Venus provides.


Thanks about the license. I wasn’t planning to jump head first into hacking on a meme tracker. I was planning to go through Dive into Python before starting. With any luck, after going through the Mark’s book your code will start making more sense to me. :)
