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 the web. Every image gets a short sharing URL that is unpredictable and unique due to using DES to generate it.
Django Shorty provides a templatetag that can be used in any Django template to provide a shortened URL to the page.
It uses base 62 encoding to keep the URL short and can be installed in to any Django project.
A very basic shopping cart class that I created when I was first learning Python. I like to keep it up to date and this was one of the first projects I upgraded to Python 3.
