Pinax has always been about a larger ecosystem of reusable apps. Now that Django supports the notion of project templates, there is no longer a need for Pinax's version of the infrastructure to support what we call the starter project.

To give you an example of how one would use Pinax now to start a new site based on the Account Starter Project follow these steps in your shell:

$ mkvirtualenv mysite
$ pip install Django==1.4.3
$ startproject --template= mysite
$ cd mysite
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ python syncdb
$ python runserver
