#Hello and welcome

Niftyurls is a popurls-style script built entirely with Django.

#View some examples

#Excerpt from the popurls site:

"... is the dashboard for the latest web-buzz, a single page that encapsulates up-to-the-minute headlines from the most popular sites on the internet."

#Unique features

  • Powered by Django
  • No tooltips by default, there are better ways of reading the text
  • Read the news in a Facebook-style lightbox ("pop" layout)
  • Read the news in a clean page ("page" layout)
  • Easy editable feed settings, titles, urls, positions in the page
  • Javascript assisted by jQuery
  • Grid templates provided by Yui3 Grids
  • Fast text replacement with Cufon

#Wish list

  • remember visitor's last viewed links, mark new/old links
  • show new links only
  • videos support
  • admin interface for feed configuration, more config options
  • multiple domain support
  • site search with database support
  • usability improvements
  • user accounts, openid support
  • code comments, svn support

The Niftyurls application depends on the following Django packages: 'django.contrib.staticfiles' 'django.contrib.admin' To make sure every app is enabled, add the following line to your project's "settings.py" file: INSTALLED_APPS += ('django.contrib.staticfiles', 'django.contrib.admin', 'niftyurls', )

  6. Add some feeds in the admin interface http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin/niftyurls/feed/add/ Here are some feed urls examples: - http://feeds.delicious.com/v2/rss/popular/python?count=15 - http://www.reddit.com/.rss

  7. Run the following command so that fresh entries are added to the database. $ python manage.py niftyurls_feeds
