Before starting to code, we need to determine the right tools to use so we can have a smooth flowing operation. Below is a list of technologies technologies that we’ll use for Projectrix

Cloud – CHECK!

Google App Engine

Programming Language – CHECK!

Python

IDE – CHECK!

Eclipse Galileo

Framework – CHECK!

Django

SET UP EVERYTHING – Stay tuned =)

PYTHON: Getting Started

leave a comment »

After the big reptile decision, here comes the start of serious coding and another round of research and more coding. We shall use ECLIPSE with PYDEV plugin for Projectrix. It’s quite tricky to start given we must take note that we’ll be using GOOGLE APP ENGINE too. The following links helped us set up:

http://code.google.com/appengine/articles/eclipse.html

http://code.google.com/appengine/downloads.html

http://code.google.com/eclipse/docs/download.html

http://code.google.com/eclipse/docs/install-eclipse-3.5.html

http://code.google.com/appengine/docs/python/gettingstarted/

Google rocks! =)

The REPTILE WINS!

with one comment

So you know now who won. It’s the REPTILE! For Projectrix, we’ll use PYTHON.

All the best!

Reptile or Coffee?

Okay the title’s a bit lame.

Earlier, we were tasked to look for a better cloud than Mor.ph that can support PHP–or we should choose between Python or Java (for App Engine) by Wednesday.

Hmm, I’m not really a fan of Java. As I’ve said to Dan–the challenge (if there’s any, I have no idea yet) of learning Python might just waste precious time of focusing on the challenge on enhancing the app per se. But I’m willing to give it a try before I resort to Java.

But I’m just one vote–the other must come from my buddy. I’ll try to play around Python and if I get to enjoy working with it for the next 6 hours, it’s a go for me.
