A library for building news sites with multiple content types
Provides the foundation for all content inside Armstrong.
You can use armstrong.core.arm_content to build out the custom models of your site while following the DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself) principle. It is the foundation that the rest of the Armstrong content types are built off of.
For more information, please see the full documentation.
Installation & Configuration
You can install the latest release of armstrong.core.arm_content using pip:
pip install armstrong.core.arm_content
You don’t need to add armstrong.core.arm_content to your installed apps unless you want to use the include template tags. You can add it like this:
INSTALLED_APPS += ["armstrong.core.arm_content", ]
Note that you do not need to run syncdb or migrate after installing armstrong.core.arm_content as it does not have any models.
State of Project
Armstrong is an open-source news platform that is freely available to any organization. It is the result of a collaboration between the Texas Tribune and Bay Citizen, and a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
To follow development, be sure to join the Google Group.
armstrong.core.arm_content is part of the Armstrong project. You’re probably looking for that.
