Faster Django with staticgenerator1/30/2011
One nice thing that I missed from Wordpress was the ability to static cache posts using things like wp-super-cache. It's a giant waste of CPU to generate pages for every request, especially now that I have setup disqus, page changes are very infrequent.
I've put the branch up on my github that adds patches from Kevin Renskers to allow excluding URLs. That was important in my case because this site serves as the backed for my Android app, and it's a place for lots of experimentation. Some things I don't want cached.
