Welcome to Kiki's documentation!

Kiki is envisioned as a Django-based mailing list manager which can replace Mailman.

Why replace Mailman?

Mailman is a grand old thing. However, there are some major sticking points, which Kiki tries to resolve.

Mailman Kiki
Install requires root access and a build step. Django package. Can be installed simply and locally.
Includes C modules. Pure Python.
Only accessible through its own web interface, and authentication is baked in. Integrates with the django admin and provides default urls, views, and templates.
Uses a private database for Users. Integrates with the Users already on your site.
Documents are wiki-based or not easily buildable. Sphinx documentation is in a separate directory from the code. You can also find the docs on readthedocs.org.
Message queueing baked in. Uses django-celery for queues.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
