Pinax is an open-source platform built on the Django Web Framework. It provides numerous reusable Django apps, starter projects and infrastructure tools. pinax-social, a social networking site, is its "kitchen sink" demo demonstrating many of Pinax's features.

Local development

pypm install -r requirements.txt
pip install --user -r requirements.pip
python syncdb
python runserver

Deploying to HPE Helion Stackato

Optionally, if you want the app to be able to send emails successfully, specify the mail server settings in your Django If you have a SMTP backend, for instance, add the following to

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend'
EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'smtpuser'

See the Django documentation for further details. Then deploy your app,

stackato push -n

Setup cron job for sending emails

Run the following command as a cron job on your own server. You may also run them manually.

stackato run pinax-social python send_mail
stackato run pinax-social python emit_notices

See the pinax documentation on sending mail and notices.

Email notifications will contain URLs with pinax-social.stackato.local as the domain unless it is changed in fixtures/initial_data.json prior to deployment or later in django admin.
