A wordpress like blog app implemented in wagtail

Project description

# wagtail_blog A wordpress like blog app implemented in wagtail.

# What is it

After reimplimenting wordpress like blogs over and over again in wagtail I decided to just make this. Feel free to use as is or copy it as a starting point. It’s based on the wagtail demo blog but is closer to a standard Wordpress blog style.

## Features

  • Categories and tags with views
  • RSS
  • Basic starter templates with pagination
  • Comments

Work in progress?

  • Wordpress importer
  • Disqus comments

# Installation

  1. pip install wagtail-blog
  2. Add blog to INSTALLED_APPS
  3. Add url(r’^blog/’, include(‘blog.urls’)), to urls.py
  4. Override [templates](/blog/templates/blog/) as needed.

# Settings

BLOG_PAGINATION_PER_PAGE (Default 10) Set to change the number of blogs per page. Set to None to disable (useful if using your own pagination implimentation).

# Comments

django-comments-xtd comments work out of the box. Just install it as directed [here](http://django-comments-xtd.readthedocs.org/en/latest/). Customizing the xtd comment templates should be all you need - but feel free to review this apps templates which you may want to override.

Out of box Disqus coming someday - but it’s pretty easy to add manually following the Disqus documentation and overriding templates.

Feel free to contribute other comment implimentations.

# Hacking

The included docker-compose file should make it easy to get up and running.

  1. Install docker and docker-compose
  2. docker-compose up
  3. docker-compose run –rm web ./manage.py migrate
  4. docker-compose run –rm web ./manage.py createsuperuser
  5. Log in and create a blog index page with blog pages to see a very basic implimentation.
