Is there a way to modify templates from an external library so that any pip upgrade won't overwrite them?
I have a website that I'm adding a blog to with Flask-Blogging. Seems to do most of what I want and no more. Perfect. I need to make it blend in to the rest of the site, however... Flask blogging says to modify the template files to do so. But I pip installed the package - so won't any upgrade overwrite any changes I make here? The templates are inside the site-packages directory. Does anyone know if there is a workaround for this or anything? Might have to resort to just copying the templates out to another directory and copying back... Not ideal.

I have a bit of a beginner question I hope someone can provide with a simple answer or link. I am moving some personal projects from shared hosting to VPS, and trying to learn the config/admin side of things as I go. I used to host a few flask apps on separate subdomains, and could easily run each app in the root of the subdomain. Now with the VPS, I have a free SSL certificate for the root domain, but not subdomains... So I am thinking of moving the apps to subdirectories instead of subdomains so they all can use the SSL cert. The trick is I want to run a lightweight flask blog app at the root, and dispatch other flask apps at some subdirectory under the root.

I am looking at this part of the docs: http://flask.pocoo.org/docs/0.10/patterns/appdispatch/#combining-applications
Which makes me think it is possible, even if I need to build yet ANOTHER app to dispatch the requests. Is this the best way to go, or is there some server-level config (nginx) I could do that would make this even easier?

(Sorry if this is a sort of newbie question. I come from the windows dev world and don't always know the "right" way to do things on linux.)

I'm thinking about taking Computational Photography in the Summer. Any idea what the workload might be like? Also, I am not particularly strong in Linear Algebra (yet) - though I understand matrix operations in Python ok. How much math here is really required?

From the course reviews (https://gt-course-surveys.herokuapp.com/#/reviews/course/6475) it doesn't sound like it will be too hard, too much work, or too math-heavy. Just curious if anyone has anything else to weight in on.

This is the coolest thing I've seen in a very, very, very long time. I just saw it five minutes ago and already have two uses for it....

Today, the ebook "Learning scikit-learn: Machine Learning in Python" is available free from Pakt Publishing. Their books seem to be short but to the point. Grab it sometime within the next ~23 hours if you're interested...

I have been through here on a bus en route to a smaller, less hell-holey beach town.  If you can get away from the people, I'm sure it's gorgeous.
 
Cala Frares, Lloret de Mar, Spain.
‘Cala Frares Redux’ by Carlos Santero | https://goo.gl/3ddVji

Cala Frares (Friars Creek) is a creek located in the town of Lloret de Mar, Spain, in the Costa Brava South. It is one of the most photogenic spots on the Costa Brava.

Many tourists visit Lloret de Mar in summer but none will climb down to this amazing spot so it is really nice and peaceful there.

Lloret de Mar is the largest resort on the Costa Brava and its population peak above 200,000 during summer.
