Simple blogging application

Project description

Simple blogging application

django-blawg is a very basic blogging app that was mainly made to practice generic views and mixins. It supports multiple blogs for users, date-based listings and comments. An already existing user authentication system is assumed and utilized. django-blawg is not optimized or built for large-scale usage.


  • Download and install from PyPI:

pip install django-blawg

This will also install django-mptt and django-autoslug, as they are dependencies.

  • Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS, as well as ‘mptt’:

  • Include the urlconf of the app in your project’s

from django.conf.urls import url, include

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'blog/', include('blawg.urls', namespace='blawg')),

Of course, you can put it under any url you want, like r’’ or r’^mysite/myblog/’.


The starting URL is some user’s username, his home page, which lists the user’s blogs. The root URL redirects to the currently logged in user’s home page.


All of the app settings are optional but you may want to modify them to customize to your needs.

  • BLAWG_TITLE_MAX_LENGTH: Maximum allowed characters for blog and entry title.

    Default: 100

  • BLAWG_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH: Maximum allowed characters for blog description.

    Default: 200

  • BLAWG_GUEST_NAME_MAX_LENGTH: Maximum allowed characters for anonymous commenter name.

    Default: 30

  • BLAWG_FORBIDDEN_SLUGS: List of words not allowed to be used as slugs.

    Default: [‘create’, ‘update’, ‘delete’]

  • BLAWG_SLUG_MODIFIER: String to be appended to an invalid slug.

    Default: ‘-’
