Reusable blog app for Django-Widgy

Project description

Django Widgy Blog

This is reusable blog app designed for use with django-widgy. It can be utilized as a drop-in addition to a widgy project for creating a quick, run-of-the-mill blog or as an abstract guide to building your own custom app that takes advantage of all the wonderful features that widgy offers.


(This guide assumes that your project is already using widgy. Please see this tutorial if this is not the case.)

  1. Install the package

    $ pip install django-widgy-blog

  2. Add widgy_blog to your INSTALLED_APPS.

  3. Run python migrate in order to generate the relevant models in the database.

  4. Configure the urls:

    1. If you’re using widgy’s contrib.urlconf_include package, you can opt to use widgy_blog as a plugin. This allows admin users of the site to take advantage of plugin-specific features, such as editing the url route of the blog and customizing its addition to menus. See urlconf_include for more information.
    2. Alternatively, you can include the widgy_blog urls within your file as you normally would. Just remember to add them before the included Mezzanine urls if you’re editing the root conf!
  5. That’s it. Log in to the admin center and start adding blog posts!

  • Blogs now have date and time rather than just date published.
  • Tags are now supported
  • Various small bugfixes.
  • Blog views with a page querystring equal to 1 will now have a canonical_url in the template context pointing to the same page without that querystring.

0.1.0 (release 2014-12-03)

  • Add model attributes to AbstractBlogLayout and BlogAdmin that make them easier to subclass. Update AbstractBlogLayout published queryset function to use fewer queries [Scott Clark, #18]

  • Backwards Incompatible: Registered the BlogLayout model with widgy. If you weren’t using this as your Blog layout, you will need to unregister it:

    import widgy
    from widgy_blog.models import BlogLayout

    If you were already registering the BlogLayout yourself, you can just remove that code.
