Django Image Dump
This was a quick project that gives me a simple way to upload and share image files.
There are many free sites that let you upload and share images but I have reservations about copyright and feel the only way to really ensure I retain control of my stuff is to host it myself.
This is a Django app that lets me drag files off my desktop in to the browser for upload to theweb.Every image gets a short sharing URL that is unpredictable and unique due to using DES togenerate it.
Django Holding Page
I quite often buy domains and put this holding page app on them until they're ready. It's a simple form to capture names and emails but it saves me quite a bit of work each time.
It's also available on PyPI: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/django-holding-page/
