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 http://pinaxproject.com.
This app was developed as part of the Pinax ecosystem but is just a Django app and can be used independently of other Pinax apps.
pinax-forums is an extensible forums app for Django and Pinax. It is focused
on core forum functionality and hence is expected to be combined with other
Pinax apps for broader features.
pinax-forums was originally built by Eldarion and
agora. It incorporates code and ideas from various client projects.
The clients were kind enough to allow Eldarion to open source the app and
contribute it to Pinax.
pinax-forums documentation is currently under construction. If you would
like to help us write documentation, please join our Pinax Project Slack team
and let us know! The Pinax documentation is available at http://pinaxproject.com/pinax/.
See this blog post including a video, or our How to Contribute section for an overview on how contributing to Pinax works. For concrete contribution ideas, please see our Ways to Contribute/What We Need Help With section.
In case of any questions we recommend you join our Pinax Slack team and ping us there instead of creating an issue on GitHub. Creating issues on GitHub is of course also valid but we are usually able to help you faster if you ping us in Slack.
We also highly recommend reading our Open Source and Self-Care blog post.
