A minimal blog app for Django

Andablog is a blogging application for the Django framework. Andablog comes with minimal dependencies, making it effortless to integrate to existing Django sites. It supports the latest Django and Python versions.


What is the point of all this? When this project got started blogging apps for Django generally fell into one of these categories:

  1. A full CMS framework.

  2. A Django App but intended for blog-only sites.

  3. A Django App but intended for either a blog-only site (the default) or a site with a blog attached.

Though all three of these categories had great projects to choose from any one of them could be frustrating to implement into (and maintain within) an existing site. Simply because the app was not directly and exclusively focused on the use case of a django site, and a blog (get it?).

Andablog has a focus on integration-ease first and features second. So if the focus of your Django site is something else and you want to add a blog section to it you have come to the right place.

  • The entry model now supports tags by way of the django-taggit package.

  • This affects the model only, there are no template examples or tags.

1.0.0 (2014-11-20)

Backwards Incompatible with 0.1.0. This release includes a rename of the django app package from djangoandablog to andablog to better follow community conventions. This of course is a very large breaking change, which is why the version is 1.0. As this is the second version and we have been out such a short time. My hope is that few if any people are using this app yet. If you are, please submit an issue on GitHub and I will try to help you migrate away.

0.1.0 (2014-11-16)

  • First release on PyPI.
