What is DjangoBB?
DjangoBB is a quick and simple forum which uses the Django Framework (written in Python language). Abbreviation DjangoBB stands for Django Bulletin Board. DjangoBB is distributed under the BSD license.
The basic concept of the forum progress is:
- the usage of various DBMS (MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQLite)
- the ease of integration into any Django project and the ease of installation
- the usage of standard libraries for launching on conventional hostings with python support
- user-friendly installation process
- classic view of the forum like IPB, PhpBB, Punbb
- easy forum setup
- high speed
At the current stage of development the main object is the functional implementation of the PunBB forum, in the sequel it is projected to expand it significantly.

"Why another forum?"
As far`as we are concerned, there is no usable engine written in Django. In our humble opinion, existing implementations are too simple and have little function.
