Kudos to Bodo

with 3 comments

Bodo Nauman ( got Turbinado to build with GHC 6.10 (after forcing me to fix a bunch of recently added bugs…).  Details are here.  There’s currently an issue with the crypto Hackage package which doesn’t build with GHC 6.10**.  Fortunately, the darcs version of crypto builds fine.

Bodo beat me by a couple of days to an updated “How to install Turbinado” post.  Since v0.5 is freshly minted (ahem… and debugged) (and includes cookies, cookie sessions (lifted from Michael Snoyman’s hweb), a Rails-like respondTo function, …), I’ll post an update in a day or two.

Adolfo Builes also has started to replicate a Rails tutorial in Turbinado, so I hope I can point you to his results soon.

** The crypto build fails when building some test applications.  What’s weird is that “cabal install” installs the *test* applications into the bin directory.  Why would I want test applications in /usr/local/bin?  I don’t see a Cabal flag for “just build the libraries”…

  1. Hi!

    Any attempt to do Django-tutorial in Turbinado?

    Django has, similar to Rails, lof of docs and having sucgh tutorial would speed up newbies (like myself) 😀

  2. Gour,

    Excellent idea. Do you have tutorial that you’d like to see replicated? As long as it’s reasonably simple (build a blog or something), I’d be happy to replicate it.

  3. HiAlson,

    atm I’m reading PythoPython Web Development with Django book and there is nice blog tutorial available at or as direct link.

    Otherwise, maybe official Django-tutorial is also a nice one – I never went through it so cannot say the details.
