Project description


*A tool to help newsrooms manage their content, from pitch to planning to production.*

A project of *The Dallas Morning News*


``django-budget`` is a Django and JavaScript app that can track stories
as they are conceived, assembled and published.

It includes an approachable interface that can handle all the daily
demands of planning and assembling content across news organizations
large and small, based on a standards-compliant API that can be used by
other consumers — from chatbots to full-screen displays to many other

Detailed documentation (including a user guide) will be added at a later
