Fewer plugins

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 It's likely this is out of date and not representative.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.

I've decided I don't really need to be running all the plugins I had running. So I've removed a bunch. The good news is that removing a plugin requires the following extremely difficult steps:

  • remove the plugin from load_plugins in my config.py file

If I want to completely eradicate the plugin:

  • delete the plugin file from the file system

  • delete all entries in config.py that have to do with the plugin

  • delete any data files the plugin used from the file system

Anyhow, I'm probably going to install comments, pingbacks, trackbacks, quarter-backs, double-decaf-half-backs, atom, madam, and all the other possible ways for blogs to intertwine with one-another over the next week so that I will finally have an inkling of what all the hubbub is about. [1]
