Articles Application

This blog system was not working out well for me, especially for those long ramblings of mine, so I have created an articles app in django and now I can ramble on forever.

I wanted something that would be able to display code snippets more intuitively and effectively. The article app includes an extra field for the html content that takes the text/body of the article and converts it into an html structure.

The conversion process makes use of markdown and codehilite and the processing is done on the server side of things and only has to be done when I add/update the article, instead of at the client side each and everytime the article is viewed.
