Just recently heard of gist.io – a pastebin services that converts markdown formatted files from https://gist.github.com into HTML. Useful for those times you want to quickly share info that’s off-topic to your blog and to an audience of non manpage ... [More] readers. Why markdown? It’s prettier than plain text and syntactically much simpler than html. GitHub users should like this. […] [Less]

So I’ve been trying to hire two python developers to join my automation team here at Red Hat since last November, 2013… and believe it or not, so far I’ve had absolutely zero success in finding good, strong, with real world experience candidates in ... [More] North Carolina! I either find really smart people, who do have relevant backgrounds or could ‘hit the ground running’ but are way out of my current budget, or they lack real world experience and fall into more of an entry level position. Basically I’m looking for someone who not only can ‘speak python’ fluently but also has experience doing automation and writing tests, as well as that ‘QE mindset’ that makes you want to automate all things and question all things about a product! Someone who knows how to file a good bug report and knows how to provide pertinent, relevant information to developers so that they can fix a bug. Finally, someone who believes in continuous integration and is excited about an opportunity to improve and augment our existing testing framework and work with a very exciting product, knowing that your contributions will affect literally thousands of customers world wide! Bonus points if you know what Selenium is and have played with Paramiko and/or Requests!!! Does that interest you? Feel that you got what I’m looking for? Then take a peek at these two positions and apply fast! Associate Quality Engineer - Python Quality Engineer - Python and Selenium [Less]

Today I’m releasing FauxFactory 0.2.0 with a new feature, a “Lorem Ipsum” generator. I confess that I did not look around for any existing implementation in python out there and just started writing code. My idea was to create a method that would: ... [More] Return a “Lorem Ipsum” string if I passed no arguments: In [1]: from fauxfactory import FauxFactory In [2]: FauxFactory.generate_iplum() Out[2]: u'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.' Return a single paragraph with a fixed number of words if I passed a numeric words=x argument. If words was a large number, the text would ‘wrap around’ as many times as needed: In [3]: FauxFactory.generate_iplum(words=8) Out[3]: u'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit.' In [4]: FauxFactory.generate_iplum(words=80) Out[4]: u'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.' If paragraphs=x was used, then a given number of paragraphs containing the entire “Lorem Ipsum” string is returned: In [5]: FauxFactory.generate_iplum(paragraphs=1) Out[5]: u'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.' In [6]: FauxFactory.generate_iplum(paragraphs=2) Out[6]: u'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.

Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.' Finally, if both words and paragraphs are used, then a given number of paragraphs with the specified number of words is returned, with the text ‘flowing’ and ‘wrapping around’ as needed: In [7]: FauxFactory.generate_iplum(paragraphs=1, words=7) Out[7]: u'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing.' In [8]: FauxFactory.generate_iplum(paragraphs=3, words=7) Out[8]: u'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing.\nElit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut.\nLabore et dolore magna aliqua.

Short on its heels, today I’m releasing FauxFactory 0.2.1 to fix a brown paper bag bug I encountered last night before going to bed. Basically, the new “Lorem Ipsum” generator was not honoring the words parameter if you asked for a string longer ... [More] than 70 characters. I have fixed the issue as well as added a new test to make sure that the generator does the right thing. The package is available on Pypi (sadly the page is still not rendering correctly… suggestions welcome) and can be installed via pip install fauxfactory.
