I’m working on a series of small “unifications”. Attempts to bring several of my different projects closer together. This is to share more code between them, or allow them to work more closely together.

Today, I’ve been updating BootDown, my quick and dirty static site generator so that it now uses the same library (txlib.py) as TSWiki to render markdown and embedded media like YouTube and SoundCloud.

This means that from now on, BootDown will use the same markup for embedding videos etc. as TSWiki : block defined with [<BLOCKTYPE ... >] containing metadata in YAML format. Also means that TSWiki now inherits an include CSV file block which renders as a reasonable looking table from BootDown.

This is a small change to a couple of files in a couple of projects, but it’s part of a general campaign of forward motion that will hopefully result in a bunch of projects becoming more powerful, more flexible and faster evolving this year.
