Personal search engine with datasette and dogsheep

Episode #299, published Sun, Jan 17, 2021, recorded Wed, Nov 18, 2020

In this episode, we'll be discussing two powerful tools for data reporting and exploration: Datasette and Dogsheep.

Datasette helps people take data of any shape or size, analyze and explore it, and publish it as an interactive website and accompanying API.

Dogsheep is a collection of tools for personal analytics using SQLite and Datasette. Imagine a unified search engine for everything personal in your life such as twitter, photos, google docs, todoist, goodreads, and more, all in once place and outside of cloud companies.

On this episode we talk with Simon Willison who created both of these projects. He's also one of the co-creators of Django and we'll discuss some early Django history!
