About

This is the source code for trentpalmer.org, a Django web app for hosting podcasts or audiobooks serialized as podcasts. Inspired by David Collins-Rivera, who serializes his audiobooks as podcasts.

Listening

Using a podcast client is strongly encouraged because of the obvious limitations of trying to listen in the web browser. Although I do at some point intend to include a PWA, in the future, probably using either flutter-web or react.

Paste the rss link into a podcast client application.

Every podcast (or audiobook) has an associated rss feed which you can paste into a podcast client. My personal preference is AntennaPod.

Django has a built-in syndication app for generating the rss feeds, which I find delightful to work with once you get the hang of it.

Recording

I record to Audacity on a refurbished Dell Optiplex 3010, which has an Ivy Bridge Core i5 cpu, running Manjaro Linux, which I installed by hand the Arch way using pacstrap, with the Mate Desktop Environment, using a Samson Meteor usb condensor microphone.

It would certainly be possible to configure the website to allow additional contributors, and/or build the rss feeds such that they could be listed in iTunes, or Google Podcasts, or Spotify.

Additional Django Apps

Hosting

For now, the website is deployed on Arch Linux, using Arch Linux python packages, with the static assets in minio, which is an s3-compatible object store.

Logging

I have added a custom logging handler using sendxmpp, because Prosody is far easier to setup than in comparison to an email server. The relevant settings are in tp/logging_settings.py, called from tp/settings.py.
