Django Management.tmbundle

Did some work on my Django Management.tmbundle last night.

It now handles running tests when (a) The apps are not directly in the project root, but inside another folder, for instance; and (b) the app/ file has been split into seperate files.

The main reason I made this was so that I could run tests and have clickable links in the results window for the location of failing tests.

There is still much to do on this. I am considering re-writing it in python rather than ruby, so I can programmatically find the app name, rather than guess it. I also want to refactor the hell out of it and make it much nicer.

Anyway, if you are interested, you can find the most recent version at - and I think it also appears in TextMate’s getBundles bundle.

Images in placeholder for input fields

Since I have been doing a heap of web/html dev lately, I’ve taken to noticing things. Today, on MacWorld, I noticed this:


Clicking in the search box results in:


So, there is an image in the placeholder. This is very neat!

Unfortunately, it appears this might not be a part of the HTML5 spec, but is done using JavaScript.

Copy password button in

I don’t know if this is new or not, but I haven’t noticed it before. My normal workflow for and finding a forgotten password (ie, my Twitter one to put into a new app) is to open the password entry, and copy the value.

Today, I noticed a Copy button at the bottom of the window:

Keychain Access

This still requires you to enter your keychain password to authorise the copy, but saves a step or two.
