Some planet updates

I found myself unexpected with a day home with nothing but boring chores to do really, so I figured a good way to get out of doing those would be to do some work on the backlog of things that I've been planning to do for planet.postgresql.org. I realize that my blog is turning into a release-notes-for-planet lately since I haven't had much time to blog about other things. So I may as well confess right away that one reason to post is to make sure the updates I deployed actually work...

This round of updates have been around the twitter integration:

  • Since it turned out that a lot of people didn't actually know there was a twitter integration for planet, it is now linked clearly from the planet frontpage.
  • The twitter integration scripts (originally by Selena have been rewritten to work directly with our database of posts instead of pulling back in the RSS feed that the system had just generated, and also to keep the status of posts in the database. With luck, this will fix the very rare case where posts sometimes got dropped, and it made the code a lot simpler.
  • The posts made by the system will refer to the twitter username of the blog owner, if it's registered. For your own blogs, you can see what username is registered by going to the registration site. We've added some of the twitter usernames we know about - if yours is not listed, please let us know at planet@postgresql.org what twitter username to connect with what blog url.
  • The system has been prepared to pull out some usage statistics, but nothing is actually done with that yet.
