Django-machina is a forum framework for Django providing a way to build community-driven websites. It offers a full-featured yet very extensible forum solution:
- Topic and post editing
- Forums tree management
- Per-forum permissions
- Anonymous posting
- Polls and attachments
- Moderation and pre-moderation
- Forum conversations search
Django-machina was built with integration in mind: the application is designed to be used inside existing Django applications. It is not a standalone forum solution.
Django-machina was built with customization and extensibility in mind: each single functionality of the application can be customized or overriden to accommodate with your needs. In fact, django-machina uses the same techniques as those introduced by the famous django-oscar e-commerce framework to allow powerfull customizations.
Online browsable documentation is available at https://django-machina.readthedocs.org.
