A Django forum engine for building powerful community driven websites.
This application is in heavy development. It is not yet suitable for production environments.
Django-machina is a forum framework for Django providing a way to build community-driven websites. It offers a full-featured yet very extensible forum solution:
- Topic and post editing
- Forums tree management
- Per-forum permissions
- Anonymous posting
- Polls and attachments
- Moderation and pre-moderation
Django-machina was built with integration in mind: the application is designed to be used inside existing Django applications. It is not a standalone forum solution.
Django-machina was built with customization and extensibility in mind: each single functionality of the application can be customized or overriden to accommodate with your needs. In fact, django-machina uses the same techniques as those introduced by the famous django-oscar e-commerce framework to allow powerfull customizations.
Online browsable documentation is available at https://django-machina.readthedocs.org.
Head over to the documentation for all the details on how to set up your forum and how to customize it to suit your needs.
Python 2.7+ or 3.3+, Django 1.8+. Please refer to the requirements section of the documentation for a full list of dependencies.
Two demo sites can be tested:
- Topic subscriptions: a user can get a list of all topics to which he subscribed
- A view to get all the posts of a forum member
- A setting to limit the maximum size of an attachment
- A setting to limit the length of topic posts
- A way to prevent users to submit too many posts in a given period
