A minimal, admin-powered, django blogging app with a fun name.

Project description

yet another Django-powered blog. The goal of this app is to provide a minimalistic (in both number of features and code) tool for publishing a mostly-text blog. Shameless plug: see for an example.

This app provides a fairly simple Entry model, and a light-weight Tag model.


  • Support for Site
  • Simple content tagging
  • RSS & Atom Feeds
  • Sitemap support
  • Automatic cross-posting to Blogger (see below)
  • Support authoring content in reStructured Text (requires docutils), markdown (requires Markdown) or plain old HTML.


  1. Install with pip install django-blargg
  2. Add blargg to your INSTALLED_APPS
  3. Configure your Root URLconf: url(r'^blog/', include('blargg.urls', namespace='blargg'))
  4. Customize your templates. There are some sample templates under blargg/templates/blargg, but you’ll want to override these in your project.
  5. (Optinally) enable Mail2Blogger (see below)

Mail2Blogger Support

This app supports cross-posting to Blogger via email. By default, this setting is disabled. To enable Mail2Blogger, include the following settings:

    'mail2blogger': True,
    'mail2blogger_email': '',

To set your Mail2Blogger email address, view your Mobile and email settings. Entries that are cross-posted to Blogger will automatically include a link back to the original site (provided that you’ve got the django.contrib.sites app installed and configured correctly).

Warning: mail2blogger appears to remove extra whitespace from your content which breaks things in a <pre> or <code> blocks. If you know how to prevent this, please let me know.


This code is distributed under the terms of the MIT license. See the LICENSE.txt file.


Feel free to report any issues or (better yet) pull requests for bug fixes! There’s a requirements.txt file in this repo to help you get all the dependencies you’ll likely need (for python3).

Why the name “Blargg”?


A Blargg is a large red dragon that lives in lava and appears in Super Mario World. When Mario goes across a lava pit on a pile of skulls occasionally the eyes of a Blargg will appear and then itself will try to eat Mario. They are found mostly in the Vanilla Dome. Strangely, they have one lazy eye.

Other than that, Blargg is really fun to say out loud. Especially if you use a Pirate Voice. Go ahead, try it!
