Django Round-Up podcast and a few links


Yesterday I started listening to the Django Round-Up Podcast hosted by @kennethlove and @bkonkle and it’s really good. I’ve just finished listening to the second episode and I have a bunch of links I wanted to share here.

These are projects I just heard about on the podcast and will definitely try soon. Let me know what you think.

An way to globally disable writes to your database. This works by inserting a cursor wrapper between Django’s CursorWrapper and the database connection’s cursor wrapper. So many cursor wrappers!
