Worked on chapter marks feature for django-cast. When the chapter marks form field is empty but one of the audio files is added or modified, django-cast now also tries to read chapter marks from audio using ffprobe. Someone asked a question about drawing an ascii cube with python and I had some fun playing around a little bit with this problem live on the stream.

Migrated the search/faceted navigation functionality from specialized views to the new wagtail based ones for django-cast and recorded progress in 5 live streams. Started experimenting again with a new microphone position (meh), powder for makeup without much success. But I'm happy with the current development speed, so things are moving forward at least.

Completed audio support for the new django-cast this week and recorded stream 50-54 about it. Refactored the synchronization between database structure and streamfield a little bit. Added pre-commit hooks to lint and autoformat the django-cast source automatically. Made the podlove player work in the wagtail based post templates. Fixed pagination for video and audio files.

Tests for wagtail based django-cast video support for are complete. Recorded 5 streams this week building them. Had to wrestle a bit with executing single tests being slow because of the huge migration history of wagtail. Found a workaround (--nomigrations) but am not really happy with it yet. Didn't have time to play around with audio / video for streams *sigh*.

Got all tests working again in the django-cast develop branch. Recorded 5 streams fixing tests this week. Solved the how to keep streamfield and database structure in sync problem (basically) + tests. Learned how to use --reuse-db, --no-migrations with sqlite test databases (it's in memory by default..). Didn't do any video / audio experiments this week, too. This has to change..

Changed the heading of the collected links for this week from "Interesting Content" to "Things I Looked at Last Week", because I often find this stuff not interesting at all. But since I only know it afterwards.. well.
