Plugin that injects entries into the list

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

This plugin registers with the prepareChain and injects an entry to the beginning of the entry_list that holds personal information from $datadir/personalinfo.dat which is a pickled dict. I have mine updated via cron at the moment.

I don't really have a wild need to have this information, but it occurred to me that our system allows for this without any problems. I mentioned this to the pyblosxom-devel list and Ted replied that we need more examples. I thought about it during lunch and then whipped together this example (it took 10 minutes again--I'm into these 10 minute plugins at the moment).


3/19/2003 Moved code to /~willkg/dev/pyblosxom/ .

1/27/2004 Removed because it's a sucky plugin and there are better ones.
