10 days' worth of furious hacking at a Stack Overflow clone for Django in October 2008.
OSQA seems to have taken the ball and run with it, so not sure if I'll ever take this one any further.
- django_html for rendering
django.formscomponents using HTML instead of XHTML.
- python-markdown2 for converting Markdown-formatted user input into HTML.
- html5lib for HTML sanitisation.
- lxml for HTML diffing.
- Oh, and Django 1.2 or greater, of course.
To play around with SOClone:
Use the pip-requirements.txt file to install dependencies with pip.
Run the following command to create the database:
django-admin.py syncdb --settings=soclone.settings
You will be prompted to create a superuser.
Run the following command to start the development server:
django-admin.py runserver --settings=soclone.settings
Cross your fingers, open http://localhost:8000/questions/ and log in with the superuser account you created.
Here be dragons.
