Fedora 28 : Testing Blender 2.80 .

I tested the new Blender 2.80 alpha 2 version and is working well.
You can start to download it from official download page.
The next step: unarchive the file and run the blender from the newly created folder.
I try to create a package but seems the tool not working with the .spec file.
This is a screenshot with this Blender 3D software running in my Fedora 28.

Fedora 28 : Strife another golang game framework.

Today I tested this 2D game framework named Strife.
You can read more about this from the official website.
The development team tells us:
  "This a work in progress. It provides a very minimal toolset for rendering shapes, images, and text as well as capturing user input."
This game framework uses SDL2 libraries.
Strife is open source and available under the MIT license.
Let's start with installation into Fedora 28 distro.
[root@desk mythcat]# dnf install SDL2-devel.x86_64
[root@desk mythcat]# dnf install SDL2_ttf-devel.x86_64 
[root@desk mythcat]# dnf install SDL2_image-devel.x86_64 
[mythcat@desk ~]$ go get
[mythcat@desk ~]$ cd $GOPATH/src/
I test one example from installation folder with particles:
[mythcat@desk strife]$ cd example/particles
[mythcat@desk particles]$ go run particles.go

Fedora 28 : Web development with Nikola and python.

The development team comes with this info about Nikola:
Nikola is a static site and blog generator, written in Python. It can use Mako and Jinja2 templates, and input in many popular markup formats, such as reStructuredText and Markdown — and can even turn Jupyter Notebooks into blog posts! It also supports image galleries and is multilingual. Nikola is flexible, and page builds are extremely fast, courtesy of do it (which is rebuilding only what has been changed).
I tested today with Fedora 28 and python version 2.7.15.
If you take a look at Nikola handbook, you will see all the features, options and settings you need for web development.
The installation is very simple:
[mythcat@desk ~]$ pip install Nikola --user

Fedora 28 : Integrate tinymce editor with Fedora and Django.

This is a raw tutorial about how to integrate the python module named django-tinymce with a django project.
I used the raw word because you need to have a working django project into your Fedora distro.
You can see my old tutorial about django to see how to build a django project.
About this python module you can read more here.
The django-tinymce is a django application that contains a widget to render a form field as a TinyMCE editor.
I have a project named trydjango with a django application named products into my django folder.
I used activate command to activate my virtual environment:
[mythcat@desk django]$ source bin/activate
I install this python module named django-tinymce:
(django) [mythcat@desk django]$ pip install django-tinymce4-lite
Collecting django-tinymce4-lite
Installing collected packages: jsmin, django-tinymce4-lite
Successfully installed django-tinymce4-lite-1.7.2 jsmin-2.2.2
Let's see my folder project django named src:
(django) [mythcat@desk django]$ cd src/
(django) [mythcat@desk src]$ ll
total 136
-rw-r--r--. 1 mythcat mythcat 135168 Sep 28 12:21 db.sqlite3
-rwxrwxr-x. 1 mythcat mythcat    541 Sep 23 18:56
drwxrwxr-x. 4 mythcat mythcat    142 Sep 26 21:45 pages
drwxrwxr-x. 4 mythcat mythcat    142 Sep 28 18:30 products
drwxrwxr-x. 3 mythcat mythcat    112 Sep 28 12:04 templates
drwxrwxr-x. 3 mythcat mythcat     93 Sep 28 12:14 trydjango
The installation is simple and star with to your and file:
(django) [mythcat@desk src]$ cd trydjango/
(django) [mythcat@desk trydjango]$ vim 

(django) [mythcat@desk trydjango]$ vim

from django.contrib import admin
from django.urls import path, include

from pages.views import home_view, about_view, contact_view
from products.views import product_detail_view

urlpatterns = [
    path('', home_view, name='home'),
    path('about/', about_view),
    path(r'^tinymce/', include('tinymce.urls')),
This is my change I used to add the tinymce editor into my django application named products.
(django) [mythcat@desk products]$ vim
from django.db import models
from tinymce.models import HTMLField

# Create your models here.
class Product(models.Model):
    title = models.CharField(max_length=120)
#    description = models.TextField(blank=True, null=True)
    description = HTMLField()
    price = models.DecimalField(decimal_places=2, max_digits=1000)
    summary = models.TextField(default='this is cool!')
You can see I used HTMLField and default come is TextField.
The result of this changes can see into the next output:
