What is PYBB?
=============

The main point in development of pybb is to build it so it could be
*easily* integrated to existing django based site. This mean:

* pybb does not provide features like user registration, password restoring.
  It does not provide authentication page. You should use your favorite
  application for such things. You can try well known django-registration
  http://code.google.com/p/django-registration/ or my own implementation
  http://hg.pydev.ru/django-account. Both applications contain install instruction
  in the distributive. The demo site http://pybb.org use django-account.

* all pybb stuff placed in one application which is called pybb

* I'm trying to stay with KISS principle. At least in the beginning of pybb
  development. I mean that there are no threaded posts and there is only bbcode
  markup support and there is no multi-level nested categories.

  
Dependencies
============

* BeautifulSoup
* python-markdown
* simplejson
* pytils (optional, need for russian language support)
* south (optional) - required for migrations


How to install PYBB?
====================

* Firstly you have to install pybb. You have two ways:
  * Install pybb with easy_install or pip tools
  * Clone pybb repository from http://bitbucket.org/lorien/pybb and place it in your project

* Put `pybb` into settings.INSTALLED_APPS
* Run `python manage.py pybb_install` or do following steps manually:
  * Find the static directory in the pybb source and copy or symlink static/pybb to %MEDIA_ROOT%/pybb
  * Create %MEDIA_ROOT%/pybb/avatars directory and chmod it (if that required)

* Put `include('pybb.urls'))` into main project urls.py file
* Do `python manage.py syncdb`
* And do not forget to install some authentication application like django-registration or django-account. See info in the bottom of README


i18n support
============
PYBB support only english and russian translations now.
You should enable django.middleware.locale.LocaleMiddleware to activate
django locale autodetecting.


How to glue PYBB with account application?
==========================================
* For registration, login, logout links PYBB uses reverse and url template tag
  with names same to django-registration application. Django-account uses the same
  names too. This mean that if you want use one of these two application then
  all you need is to correctly install one.
* If you account application use specific url names or don't use them at all then
  you have two ways:
  * edit PYBB sources and write correct urls
  * add required url names to account application urlpatterns
??? * Don't forget to write valid LOGIN_URL to the settings
