State of Pinax¶
Inspiration - Ole Kirk Christianson¶
Lego sets - Starter projects¶
Pinax is NOT just for social networks
- zero project = directory layout, static files, deployment
- static project = zero project + static serve
- account project = zero project + account + mailer + uniform
- company project = zero project + blog
- basic project = account project + profiles + notification + announcements
- private beta project = account project + restricted access + waiting list + signup codes
- intranet project = basic project + restricted access + top level content apps (wiki, attachments, tasks, etc)
- code project = basic project + projects + group-based content apps (wiki, attachments, tasks, etc)
- friends project = basic project + friends + invitations
- social project = friends project, blogs, microblogging, usert-to-user messages + LOTS
The Trade off¶
- How much to fix
- how much to make configurable
Pinax IS Django¶
- Django doesn’t hide python and Pinax doesn’t hide Django.
- Pinax is even more opinionated about Django
- tested on zc.buildout?
- Pinax Project site refactor?
- IE5 CSS corrections
- Pointing new users to Python, Django
