    I've been using git-svn for OpenLayers development for some time now. Although git-svn isn't so easy to work with, I'm quite happy with it for OpenLayers.

  7. Secure TileCache With Pylons and Repoze

    This post shows how one can secure TileCache with Pylons and Repoze.

    In a Pylons application one can run a WSGI application from within a controller action. Here is a simple example:

    class MainController(BaseController)
    
        def action(self, environ, start_response):
            return wsgiApp(environ, start_response)
    

    TileCache is commonly run from within ...
