Pinax Messages


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 app is part of the Pinax ecosystem and is designed for use both with and independently of other Pinax apps.


pinax-messages is an app for providing private user-to-user threaded messaging.


This app was formerly named user-messages but was renamed after being donated to Pinax from Eldarion.
