Table of Contents

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



pinax_theme_tester deploys a template browser at Browse there to see each Pinax application template collection, dressed up with Bootstrap 4 styling.

On this site, you can browse all the templates in various different states. In addition there is a source toggle where you can view the template, see what blocks are defined, and easily copy and paste into your project if you want to override or customize the template code.



Make sure you are using a virtual environment of some sort (e.g. virtualenv or pyenv).

$ npm install
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ npm install
$ ./ migrate
$ ./ loaddata sites
$ npm run dev

Browse to http://localhost:3000/
