Deploy the Zine blog engine with Paste in a buildout

Project description


This package allows you to install Zine and its dependencies in a sandbox with buildout, then serve it with any WSGI server while using the Paste facilities for WSGI stack configuration.

Install Zine:

Download and extract the zinebuildout archive from PyPI, (or clone it with: hg clone ). You don’t need to easy_install it. Then run:

$ python
$ ./bin/buildout

Configure Zine:

Edit “deploy.ini” to adapt instance_folder, host and port to your needs. You don’t need to change anything if you just want to try it on your local host.

Start Zine:

In foreground:

$ ./bin/paster serve deploy.ini

Or in background:

$ ./bin/paster serve --daemon deploy.ini

Your admin interface will then be accessible through http://localhost:8080/admin/

Then you can put this process behind a reverse proxy (with Apache ProxyPass or RewriteRule) or any other. Example of an Apache VirtualHost:

<virtualHost *>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/(.*) http://localhost:8080/$1 [proxy,last]

Optional Twitter widget

This distribution offers a Twitter widget that displays the N latests tweets of your timeline. To use it, just add the following line in the ‘_widgets.html’ file of your Zine theme:

{{ widgets.tweets('ccomb', 5) }}

Replace ‘ccomb’ with your twitter account, and 5 with the number of tweets you want to display.
