So periodically you're confronted with having to used inline formsets from django. These in practice aren't very hard to use or implement. There are plenty of blogposts out there describing in intricate detail how to use use them and implement them in practice. The problem with most of these posts is that's where it ends. What if you want to dynamically add items to your inline formset on the front end?

NOTE: Installing salt on ubuntu 11.10 will fail because SSLv2 has not been included in this version of Ubuntu. I'm not smart enough to figure out how to enable it on this version, so what I did was rebuilt my VM with Ubuntu 11.04 and everything worked. * http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8206546/undefined-symbol-sslv2-method ## Install dependencies from apt sudo apt-get install libtool autoconf automake uuid-dev swig ## Install Zeromq mkdir ~/downloads cd ~/downloads wget http://download.zeromq.org/zeromq-2.1.11.tar.gz tar -xvzf zeromq-2.1.11.tar.gz cd zeromq-2.1.11 ./configure make sudo make install sudo ldconfig ## Install Salt dependencies sudo pip install pyzmq sudo pip install m2crypto sudo pip install pycrypto sudo ...

Lab305 had the pleasure of sponsoring DjangoCon.us again this year, making it the second year that we've sponsored the conference. We fully believe that DjangoCon is one of the best conferences a developer can attend due to the vast amount of programming knowledge available. The attendees and speakers at DjangoCon are extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and the conference is run very smoothly.
