Ryan Kanno: The diary of an Enginerd in Hawaii

Yahoo! UI (YUI) + Django templates == Google Code project! FTW!

Let me first preface this blog by saying that I’m not a designer. When it comes to art and creativity, I’m so left brained, I actually wonder if my right brain even partakes in the process.

Three things spurred me to release django-yui-layout-templates.

  1. I’ve always wanted to see what GoogleCode offered in relation to SourceForge / RubyForge.
  2. I’m so caught up in corporate America staring at Java / Ruby code all day, not only haven’t I blogged about anything Django related in quite a while, but it’s nice to get some commentary from the community, i.e. “your code sucks”. (Brings me back to reality)
  3. I found myself using the same templates on a variety of projects and figured that I could do my part and help eliminate unncessary cruft/duplication.

So without further adieu, check out the project here. I know, I know – nothing revolutionary here, but I figure since Django is picking up some steam, these templates might help a Djangonaut get a head start on their next million dollar idea. :)

Voila! Enjoy!

  1. Neat! I look forward to trying this out. Thanks.

  2. Very clever idea! I’m using Django + YUI (manually), so I’ll have to give this a whirl.

  3. looks good.. follow your blog a lot. Nice, seeming active django heads in Hawaii! =)
