Utilities for transitioning to Armstrong from Wordpress


This is development level software. Please do not unless you are familiar with what that means and are comfortable using that type of software.


armstrong.utils.importers.wordpress imports Wordpress xml export files into an armstrong installation. The importer assumes that the database is empty except for whatever may have been added during a syncdb. The importer will create armstrong.apps.articles.models.Article objects for each post and django.contrib.flatpages.models.FlatPage objects for each page object.

To run the importer, navigate to the root of the project you want to import into and run armstrong import_wp /path/to/your/export.xml. The command accepts a --dryrun parameter that doesn't actually alter the database.


pip install -e git://$name#egg=$name

State of Project

Armstrong is an open-source news platform that is freely available to any organization. It is the result of a collaboration between the Texas Tribune and Bay Citizen, and a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The first release is scheduled for June, 2011.

To follow development, be sure to join the Google Group.

armstrong.apps.articles is part of the Armstrong project. You're probably looking for that.
