Create a homepage and documentation for a project is a boring task. I have a few projects that were not released yet due to lack of time and motivation to create a simple webpage and write down some Sphinx-based documentation.
To fix this issue I did a quick hack based on my favorite pieces of software: Flask, docutils and Mercurial. It is a single file web application that creates homepages automatically for my projects, using data gathered from my Mercurial repositories. It uses the tags, the README file, and a few variables declared on the repository's .hgrc file to build an interesting homepage for each project. I just need to improve my READMEs! :)
It works similarly to the PyPI Package Index, but accepts any project hosted on a Mercurial repository, including my non-Python and Gentoo-only projects.
My instance of the application lives here:
The application is highly tied to my workflow, e.g. the way I handle tags and the directory structure of my repositories on my server, but the code is available in a Mercurial repository:
Most of my projects aren't listed yet, and I'll start enabling them as soon as I fix their READMEs.blog comments powered by Disqus
