I recently blogged about developing a CherryPy application to drive the non-blog portion of yergler.net. Important features (for me) were a clean, web-based admin interface, the ability to organize content into “folders” and the ability to arbitrarily extend the system. After putting together a prototype (which actually worked… mostly), I realized that WordPress had added support for sub-page URLs. “Holy crap,” I thought, “Word Press can act as a mini-CMS, and I’ll get to leverage everything they’ve done [even if it is in PHP]”. So I did.
You’ll notice that yergler.net is now powered by Word Press, along with a handful of plugins and hacks. In the development of the site, I actually did put together my own WordPress plugin, which I’ll hopefully be releasing “real soon now.” Stay tuned.
