So… I’m going to start microblogging here since Micro.blog (which I backed on Kickstarter) has finally launched. Let’s see how that goes.
As is tradition, PieCrust 2.0 was released without much fanfare a few weeks ago. Just like with the previous version, it just happened because, well, nothing happened: I was using PieCrust for a couple other websites without any problem or need for new features, so I figured it might be as good a time as any to make it official.
Time to run
pip install -U piecrust.
I’ve been experimenting on and off with using Vim to write code at work, instead of Visual Studio, and recently I feel like I’ve reached a good enough spot to use it on a daily basis… here it is in action:

Of course the whole point of Jouvence is that you write tools and renderers of your own. The Jouvence parser returns a structured document object model that makes it easy to analyze, manipulate, or render screenplays any way you want.
For me, this let me add Fountain support to Wikked, my flat-file wiki engine.
Happy new year and other such holiday things to the 3 people who read my blog!
I was in San-Francisco for new year’s eve and it was quite lovely.
Apart from the sake of posting something new, this post is also to show off how PieCrust’s admin panel can now upload page assets (in this case, that would be the picture above… check the URL, it’s hosted right here). This feature will be part of the impending 2.0 release, but you can get it by pulling the latest from BitBucket or GitHub as usual.
