Migrating with South

September 14, 2014


Redirect to new blog Django is a powerful framework. What it lacks is database synchronisation when models are changed. This is done by South. The advantage of South is that it can do the necessary modifications easily; no need for complex configurations. When I started with South, I found its documentation unnecessarily complex.

September 11, 2014


Due to unforseen circumstances I had to clone the 0AD repo all over. This time I decided to go with Git as I am now more familiar with it. But cloning a git repo is no easy task if you have a huge project and limited bandwidth. There are many ways to mitigate these issues. […]

Overlapping collisions

July 29, 2013


A bug in the collision game is the overlap of two colliding balls. This happens when the balls are too fast and by the time the collision detection has started, the balls are partially rendered within each other. I took some time to figure out how exactly this problem occurs and how it can be […]

Getting the code for 0ad – from SVN

July 10, 2013


I am documenting this here, as a reference for me as well as for others who might have or would experience this problem. I tried to get the code from GitHub. But sadly, on my slow connection, the remote fails regularly. And since git cannot resume an update, I had to abandon cloning from git. […]
