Popularity of blogging tools used by python programmers

P: n/a
I've made a comparison of the relative popularity of blogging tools
used by python programmers. I was surprised by the number of python
developers not using python for their blogs; isn't that like GM
employees driving Toyota cars?

I just see a database error on your blog, perhaps you should have used
Python instead of PHP? Ok, kidding ;)

Since i can't see your comparison, i have to guess. PHP wins? Would not
surprise me, because PHP+MySQL is the easiest hosting to get.
Wordpress, Textpattern, ... are also much more polished.

btw my blog runs on Python! :D

Uh, no good style to comment myself, sorry. I just found why i could't
see your blog entry. Since i read your message through groups.google.de
i just clicked on the link. Your Google Highlight plugin seems to be
confused about that:

Warning: Unknown modifier '/' in
/var/www/html/wp/wp-content/plugins/google-hilite.php on line 107

Warning: Unknown modifier 'w' in
/var/www/html/wp/wp-content/plugins/google-hilite.php on line 105

Not everybody who comes from google has a search query in his referer ;)

Could it be say that Python programmers are wise enough to reinvent the
wheel ?-)

Well, Python, Zope & Plone hosting are quite popular. However python
based blog software isn't as sexy as let's say blogger.

For SPE I first used a combination of PyDS&pycs.net. It is free for
everyone, but unfortunately not stable enough to my standards.

Luckily I got sponsored by zettai.net, who offer me excellent Zope
hosting. There I use CoreBlog as I wanted consciously to use a python
product.

As a rule of thumb: when you are totally happy with the templates of
prepacked blogs like blogger, then stick with that. But... even though
they look slick, they all look the same. It's a bit the same problem of
flash. So if you really want to modify your blog, you better take a
product which is written in a language you understand. That's the
reason why I like to work with Zope, Plone and CoreBlog.

But I guess a python programmer using other blog systems is not as bad
as a microsoft worker googling for the newest ipod. I'm sure a lot Perl
or Ruby programmers also use mailman for their mailing lists.

You might also consider Firedrop2, (see
http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/w..._15.shtml#e119
) , a client side blog creation and content management system created
by Hans Nowak and now being enhnaced and maintained by Michael Foord.
Its very pythonic and extensable.
