Mostly because I don't like sharing, I use pinup boards for personal inspiration boards. Also if I use a public platform like Pinterest or Wookmark then my pins run the risk of getting a DMCA take down notice. I might not even be able to pin something at all with websites now blocking tools like this. I rather bypass all these risks and just host it myself.
Pinry has three different customizable configurations:
Have virtualenv and pip installed. You may also need to have the build dependencies for PIL installed.
$ git clone git://github.com/overshard/pinry.git $ cd pinry $ virtualenv . $ bin/pip install -r requirements/development.txt $ bin/python manage.py syncdb $ bin/python manage.py migrate $ bin/python manage.py runserver
Note: If you are on Ubuntu 12.04 there is a bug in PIL that causes it to not
build in JPG and PNG support. You'll need to follow all the steps above except
virtualenv . run
sudo apt-get install python-imaging and instead of
virtualenv . run
virtualenv --system-site-packages .. On older versions of
Ubuntu and older Linux distributions you'll need to install PIL dependencies.
On Ubuntu this can be done with
sudo apt-get build-dep python-imaging.
If you want to use Pinry with your own Jenkins server I've already setup all of the settings on Pinry, just follow the instructions starting at section 3 on the official Django Jenkins Tutorial.
A quick tip, when you get to the
Add build step -> Execute shell step instead
of using his example use:
virtualenv --system-site-packages . bin/pip install -r requirements/jenkins.txt bin/python manage.py jenkins --settings=pinry.settings.jenkins
As noted in development be sure you have PIL installed or it's build dependencies.
If you want a production server Google around for more information on
running Django in a production environment and create a
pinry/settings/production.py file. I don't cover this because there are
hundreds of different ways to deploy a Django project and everyone has their own
For build information on the latest commit head over to my Jenkins server. You'll get useful information on if all my tests are passing, my test coverage, and if I'm conforming with pylint and pep8 standards.
