MySQL with Pyplate on a Banana Pi cluster

Posted 09-02-2014 at 05:05 AM by Pyplate

I've modified the Pyplate CMS to use MySQL instead of SQLite, and some rough tests show that there's a significant improvement performance if the database is on a separate server than the web server. I haven't released this code yet, there's some more testing to do, and I need to make some changes to the install script.

I'm also working on setting up MySQL replication so that I can use a cluster of database servers with a cluster of web servers.

After that I plan to...

Banana Pi Cluster

Posted 08-01-2014 at 11:13 AM 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 01:09 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

Posted 05-17-2014 at 01:08 PM by Pyplate

I've made a lot of improvements to Pyplate. New posts can now be saved to a drafts folder before they are published, and they can also be previewed while in the draft area.

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 11:56 AM 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.
