Banana Pi Cluster

Posted 08-01-2014 at 12:13 PM by Pyplate

A few days ago I launched a new site called Banoffee Pi Server. It's running on a cluster of four Banana Pi servers running Nginx. I built the site with Pyplate CMS, a Python CMS that I wrote myself.

I built the web site on one server, and I used rsync to connect to the other servers over ssh and synchronize them. Pyplate generates static pages when caching is enabled. On this site every page can be cached, so there's no need to synchronize the entire CMS and database, just the...

Pyplate now uses WSGI instead of CGI

Posted 07-10-2014 at 02:09 AM by Pyplate

I've updated Pyplate again. This time the UI hasn't changed much, but I've done a lot of work under the hood. I've added a bunch of fixes which should make Pyplate much more secure.

I've also switched moved away from CGI amd updated Pyplate to use WSGI. This has made a huge difference to the page load time of dynamic pages. Performance with static pages hasn't really changed.

There's now a simple web server supplied with Pyplate. It's a little slower than Nginx...

New beta version of Pyplate CMS

I've added a page to the UI where you can export and import the database to XML files. This makes it easier to display the database in a human readable form. You can edit the XML files and re-import them to make changes to the database.

Pyplate now uses a comment template and a sharing template...

Pyplate CMS now works with Nginx

Posted 04-04-2014 at 12:56 PM by Pyplate

Pyplate.com has been on line for almost a week now, and I've had a good response. Several people have used the beta version of Pyplate to build simple web sites. One or two installation issues have come up, so I've updated the installation script.

I've also written a new installation script for anyone who wants to use Pyplate with Nginx. See www.pyplate.com/install-pyplate for more information. I've only published this today, so I'm still looking for beta testers.

Pyplate - a mini Wordpress written in Python now available for beta testing

Posted 03-30-2014 at 07:44 AM by Pyplate
Tags cms, python

I finally released a beta version of my Python CMS. You can check it out at www.pyplate.com. It's powered by an SQLite database, and it supports some useful features like page caching, SEO friendly URLs, a sitemap and RSS feed. The UI is simple, and easy to use.

I've tested Pyplate on a Raspberry Pi and a PC with Apache. I'll be doing testing with Nginx shortly.

I've set up a Pyplate forum at http://www.pyplate.com/forum/index.php where you can ask questions.
