News system

Posted 2015 February 09, 17:59.57 UTC by Trinket

I made a news system! Now whenever I add shiny new stuff to the Database, I can post about it! Woo!

For example, as you may have noticed, I added a bunch of type-related stuff yesterday. There's a type chart and type pages and type matchups on species and move pages.

Mods: you should all be able to post news too. It uses Markdown, like flavour text. (There's already a Markdown library for Python, whereas supporting BBCode would involve writing my own BBCode parser, which is more complicated than it might sound.)

(I figured news would be more visible here rather than having a thread on the forums or something, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that the main motivation for adding news here is that the ASBdb is the most impressive project on my résumé but the front page was kind of bare.)
