I’m determined to do my website in a weekend and started downloading/installing, only to be distracted by two things.
Great programming video by Sean Kelley on deploying a plone site and specifically creating a simple archetype using ArchGenXML and ArgoUML. Basically you use a modelling tool to create a .xmi file which ArchGenXML converts to an archetype product. This is not something I need to worry about in my weekend of plone, but it definitely is worth looking into when I do my customizations. (I found it awkward to create archetypes in a text editor or python IDE when I tried it before, but time will only tell what’s the best way to do this.
Why the sudden switch to doing plone stuff?
- I accepted a short term assignment where I was helping a technical writer document an Oracle-based product, and was already in the follow-the-directions/be-one-with-linux mindset.
- Because of said assignment, I was too tired at night to focus on my creative writing. (Translation: I’ve hit writer’s block, and this is kind of a distraction until my creative side recuperates).
- My pump for my exercise ball has still not arrived (and it is driving me crazy!)
