Simple yet powerful and really extendable application for managing a blog within your Django Web site.

Zinnia has been made for publishing Weblog entries and designed to do it well.

Basically any feature that can be provided by another reusable app has been left out. Why should we re-implement something that is already done and reviewed by others and tested?



More than a long speech, here the list of the main features:

  • Comments
  • Sitemaps_
  • Archives views
  • Related entries
  • Private entries
  • RSS or Atom Feeds
  • Tags and categories views
  • Advanced search engine_
  • Prepublication and expiration
  • Custom templates for various contents_
  • Editing in Markdown, Textile or reStructuredText_
  • Widgets (Popular entries, Similar entries, ...)
  • Spam protection with Akismet, TypePad or Mollom_
  • Admin dashboard
  • MetaWeblog API_
  • Ping Directories
  • Ping External links
  • Bit.ly_ support
  • Twitter_ support
  • Gravatar_ support
  • Django-CMS_ plugins
  • Collaborative work
  • Tags autocompletion
  • Entry model extendable_
  • Pingback/Trackback support
  • Blogger conversion utility_
  • WordPress conversion utility_
  • WYMeditor, TinyMCE and MarkItUp_ support
  • Efficient database queries
  • Ready to use and extendable templates
  • Compass and Sass3 integration
