pinax: a platform for rapidly developing websites
Pinax is an open-source collection of re-usable apps for the Django Web
By integrating numerous reusable Django apps to take care of the things
that many sites have in common, it lets you focus on what makes your
site different.
While our initial development is focused around a demo social
networking site, we are also working on number of editions tailored to
intranets, learning management, software project management and more.
If you have any questions about the Pinax project, please contact
James Tauber <> or join us on the #pinax IRC channel
on freenode or the pinax-users mailing list on Google Groups.
complete_project/ a complete sample project and templates
basic_project/ a more basic starter project
external_apps/ external re-usable apps via svn:externals
local_apps/ re-usable apps that aren't yet externalized
external_libs/ contains external libraries
docs/ documentation (using rst and sphinx; in progress)
fixtures/ test fixtures (in progress)
The photologue app requires PIL which is not included in external_libs
There is some path manipulation in to get this all to work. You'll
need to do something similar in your wsgi or mod_python configuration.
Note that if you already have an external app or external lib on the path,
you don't need to use the one we provide.
With the exception of photos, things should just work out of the box. You can
cd into projects/complete_project/ or projects/basic_project/ and
run ./ syncdb and ./ runserver to get running immediately.
