It’s been long enough and I’m now old enough that I can’t quite remember when I started following Simon Willison’s work. He’s the co-creator of Django and one of those early online programming voices that were invaluable if you were cobbling together how all this stuff worked without direct access to the technology industry. He has a new project called Datasette, which creates a simple browser based UI for exploring sqlite databases, as well as tools for turning CSV files into sqlite databases and easy hosting of Datasette instances. Beyond being useful tools, its nice to see a set of things meant for publishing stuff to the internet that doesn’t start with centralizing control in a cloud.
