about me

John M is a Linux fan in Lowell, MA.

I work at at a local company writing software. I fool around with Free and Open Source software for fun.

I am an avid user.


Filament is a library of python modules that I am using to develop simple web-oriented programs. It is currently under active development and isn't really ready for public use. However, if you want access to the source code please take a look at the mercurial repository linked below.

Some modules are documented, so pydoc is useful there. Others that don't have a complete API yet will probably be guesswork as of now.

Since I began using setup tools with filament, I've split out some of the code into seperate packages (namespace packages). Check out the development sources, when I cut a release I will probably make seperate pages for them too.

  • Filament Multiconf

  • Filament FSView

  • Filament Templates
