rsstodolist-server is a django port of the Google App Engine rsstodolist application ( Same functionality are expected but It can be host on your server.


Have python and django (1.5) installed and eventually mysql or another database (you could also use sqlite). You better install django using pip :

pip install Django==1.5.5

If you’ll use mysql as database, you’ll need the following command on Debian / Ubuntu to build the mysql client :

apt-get install python-dev
apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev
pip install mysql-python

Then create a database and a dedicated user, for mysql :

mysql -u root -p
create database rsstodolist;
grant all privileges on rsstodolist.* to 'rsstodolist'@'localhost' identified by 'CHANGEME';

You can then try to login using :

mysql -u rsstodolist -p

Then, you’ll have to change database information in rsstodolist\ file (use as example).

You should then create database table by :

python syncdb


You can then run the project using :

python runserver


Follow the Django deployement guide to deploy the application :
