This is a fork of the original montylounge version, updated to use
newer versions of django and most of the applications.


A Django blog engine leveraging only existing reusable apps, and
django-snippets. The project itself defines no models (db schemas).

The project was conceptualized for a Django-NYC lightening talk, with
the goal of introducing Django developers to the concepts behind
integrating existing reusable apps in their project, as well as
leveraging virtualenv, virtualenv wrapper, and pip into the workflow.

To read more about all the reusable apps that Mingus employs, read
“The apps that power Django-Mingus”:

It also comes with 5 default themes to choose from (really just
varying color schemes). They are Basic, Dark, Django, Minimal,
and JeffCroft. You can view them “here”:

Please submit issues, bugs, ideas, suggestion, etc., on the
