JoCommentAtom is Pyramid application maintained and developed by Jakub Warmuz that generates Atom feed with the latest comments from websites powered by Joomla and JoomlaComment extension.

Installation and Setup


It is highly recommended to use virtualenv in order create isolated Python evironment and not to install packages in the system-wide Python installation. You may also take a look at virtualenvwrapper.

  1. Create a user in the Joomla’s database and grant him an access to the following tables:

    • jos_comment (obviously, this is where all comments are stored)
    • jos_content (mandatory for proper URL generation for atom entries links)
  2. Install JoCommentAtom using pip:

    $ pip install JoCommentAtom

    Or if you have downloaded an egg:

    $ easy_install JoCommentAtom.egg

    You may also want to install JoCommentAtom from source:

    $ python install
  3. Create and edit configuration file to suit it Your needs:

    $ paster make-config --edit JoCommentAtom jocommentatom.ini
  4. Run JoCommentAtom!:

    $ paster serve jocommentatom.ini
  5. Or if You want to run JoCommentAtom as FastCGI process:

    $ paster serve --server-name=fcgi jocommentatom.ini

    Example FastCGI setup for Nginx HTTP server:

    server {
        listen :80;
        location / {
                fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_script_name;
  6. Have fun!
