Skeleton for Nelen & Schuurmans projects

Project description

Paster skeletons for Nelen & Schuurmans

nensskel provides so-called “paster templates” for easy creation of new lizard websites, libraries and so on.

The nensskel script creates a directory structure with lots of basic files (like a readme and a already there and partially filled in. Optionally it also creates a trunk/tags/branches structure in svn for you.

Just call the nensskel script to get usage information.

Installation can be done as a development installation or by a simple:

$> easy_install -i nensskel

Development installation

Do the regular python && bin/buildout and you’re set up. The nensskel and paster script are created in the bin/ directory.

There’s one python script in nensskel/*.py per template. The actual templates are in nensskel/templates/*. See for some limited documentation on what paster can do. If you want examples: is the most elaborate set of templates available.

Run the tests with bin/test and don’t forget to look at the buildbot after you made changes as it is particularly easy to make only-works-locally mistakes when working on paster templates.

Changelog for nensskel

1.1 (2010-08-10)

  • Changed test setup of djangoapp and lizardsite to match Reinout’s latest experiments :-)

1.0 (2010-08-03)

  • Added coverage support both to nensskel itself and to the templates.

0.5 (2010-08-02)

  • Added django compressor settings to the lizardsite template.

  • Added lizard-ui as a standard dependency for django applications.

0.4 (2010-05-20)

0.3 (2010-03-22)

0.2 (2010-02-12)

  • Django fixes after using skeleton in real life.

0.1 (2010-02-11)

  • Added nensskel script as a handy wrapper around paster create.

  • Added lizardsite skeleton (which needs checking and probably modifications).

  • Added djangoapp skeleton.

  • Added library skeleton.

  • Added test that creates instances of all skeletons and runs their bin/buildout. Smoke test: switch everything on and see if smoke comes out.

  • Reinout copied relevant parts from the thaskel and zestskel that he made for the two previous companies he worked for.


  • Lizardsite: add django fastcgi setup.

  • Lizardsite: add django apache config.

  • Lizardsite: add log and www dir.

  • Lizardsite: find better way for development tools (off in deployment).

  • Lizardsite: use mkdir recipe to add var/media dir

  • Lizardsite: add var/media dir hosting to apache config.

  • Lizardsite: figure out ADMIN_MEDIA_PREFIX. Probably use django-staticmedia’s STATIC_MEDIA/admin instead.
