Now with individual pages for entries

January 12th, 2010
programming, python  [html]
In the past the news page was one giant html page. This was troublesome, because as I added more and more images it took longer to load. That view still exists, but it is no longer the default. The default is a page that has the 10 most recent entries. There is also a page that lists only the dates and titles for all entries. There are also pages for individual entries, such as this one.

Behind the scenes, all these other pages are statically generated from the html for the "all news on one page" version with the same code that makes the rss feed. Not really the standard way of doing this, but it's very simple.
