I happy to announce that ActiveState Code has been taken out of beta.
This is the new site replacing the ASPN Cookbooks -- in particular the
Python Cookbook.

http://code.activestate.com/
Looks great and much faster than the old site!

Mind telling us how it is implemented? I'm guessing python/django by
the url and the fact that you have python stuff on your home pages but
I could be wrong!

Yup, it is a Django-based site -- a pleasure to work with, that. Using
django-tagging, django-template-utils & universal feedparser (for
hooking in Atom content for News section on home page), django-voting,
python-markdown2 (for rendering comments, discussion/descriptions),
recaptcha-client (for feedback when not logged in), pygments (for syntax
coloring).

I've just submitted the site to http://www.djangosites.org/

I hope to do some blog posts about some parts of the site soon and
release the small re-usable "feedback" app I've put together for getting
feedback on the site.

Cheers,
Trent

Hmm... overview is lost on the new site. My 15" notebook does not even
display 3 full recipes in a firefox browser window ( with some tabs
being opened ). I didn't check out the site on my 12" notebook but I
suspect it tends to be close to 1. Otherwise the whole screen is
filled with administrative debris which is a pitty.

The dialogs seem to be pretty responsive and straightforward though. I
used "submit recipe", typed my login data and got the input form
immediately - instead of the main page (!) in the old system which was
gruesome in this respect.
