pinax 0 python

a Django-based platform for rapidly developing websites

Please note this is an updated version (as on 2012) of Pinax. This may not play nice with the components listed in the original Pinax project. I have forked all those (component) projects and have applied my own fixes and enhancements. The starter projects of this version of Pinax have been updated to point to my updated components (wherever required).

Pinax: a platform for rapidly developing websites

Pinax is an MIT-licensed, open-source platform built on the Django Web Framework.

By integrating numerous reusable Django apps and providing starter projects and infrastructure tools, Pinax takes care of the things that many sites have in common so you can focus on what makes your site different.

Pinax has been used for everything from social networks to corporate websites and from intranets to online games. We are also working on number of editions tailored to event management, learning management, software project management and more.

Most discussion about Pinax takes place on the IRC channel #pinax on Freenode or the pinax-users mailing list on Google Groups.


We have documented how to get started with Pinax on our website:
