Blogs need three things: commenting, tags, and feeds.
Sphinx doesn’t generate RSS so I rolled my own as a Sphinx extension (source).
Changed in version 2011-01-03: It now sorts by most recent entries and takes a few configuration options such as not outputting entries older than a certain date or only outputting a maximum number of entries.
I like to entertain my inner-OCD by crafting dotfiles and as such, I talk about them a lot on my blog. I wanted a quick way to link to one of my dotfiles, wherever it may be hosted, so I wrote a reStructuredText role to do so. Something like the following will generate the right link to a specific file, of a specific revision, and a specific line in my BitBucket repo:
See :rc:`line 42 of my ~/barrc <.barrc@b1e8bfc81b0a#42>`.
If I switch to some other provider or self-host, I simply update the URL in my configuration file.
