About Pinax

Pinax is an open-source platform built on the Django Web Framework. It is an ecosystem of reusable Django apps, themes, and starter project templates. This collection can be found at



As a web application, cloudspotting2 allows you to create collections of similar cloud images, view other people’s collections, “like” a collection, invite someone to join in the fun, etc.

cloudspotting2 demonstrates Pinax core apps django-user-accounts, pinax-webanalytics, pinax-eventlog, and pinax-templates as provided from the Pinax "account" starter project.

cloudspotting2 integrates Pinax feature apps including pinax-images, pinax-likes, pinax-testimonials, pinax-invitations, pinax-messages, and pinax-announcements.


Ensure you have pipenv installed and working. This project ships with Pipfile and Pipfile.lock.

$ mkdir cloudspotting2
$ git clone cloudspotting2
$ cd cloudspotting2
$ pipenv --three  # create Python 3 virtualenv
$ pipenv shell  # activate virtualenv
$ pipenv install  # install requirements from Pipfile.lock
$ npm install  # install requirements from package-lock.json
$ ./ migrate
$ ./ loaddata noticetypes.json sites.json
$ npm run dev

If you are not using pipenv, follow standard virtualenv procedures using requirements.txt:

$ virtualenv cloudspotting2
$ git clone cloudspotting2
$ source cloudspotting2/bin/activate
$ cd cloudspotting2
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ npm install  # install requirements from package-lock.json
$ ./ migrate
$ ./ loaddata noticetypes.json sites.json
$ npm run dev
