It has been one year since the last update of my Learning Django by Example series, partially in account of the demanding day job, the main reason lies in that the project is bloated with some advanced features which delay scratching my itch. Thanks to the snow storm in the holiday season, our vacation to Las Vegas was canceled, I had time to restart the Django engine.
The new project, Pattee, named after the library in Penn State University, aims to a simple, stupid eBook management system. It is so simple that it even does not have a dedicated UI, only integrated to a third-party web application(currently, douban.com). You may check it out at here:
svn checkout http://my-svn.assembla.com/svn/pattee/trunk pattee
There is no step-by-step tutorial to follow the footprints of the Django Book, each post will target a specific topic.
