A step-by-step guide to creating a Django project from scratch with Pinax
starter projects and apps.
There is an issue with migrations that crops up in a specific scenario
in Django 1.7. While it is documented, we first became aware of it when
doing a round of project upgrades to Django 1.8.
In pinax-blog (previously named biblion), there are extensions to the markup
libraries that make including images simple and easy.
We are big believers in continual improvement and gaining efficiencies at Eldarion. One way we achieve this is by integrating our code continually and upon doing so running test suite and lint checking.
Sometimes you want an AJAX request triggered by time. With eldarion-ajax it is as easy as setting a few attributes in your markup.
A year ago, we published a library for doing declarative AJAX, called bootstrap-ajax. Recently, we renamed it to eldarion-ajax.
The age old question of “How do I run code when Django starts?” may now be finally answered.
On Sunday afternoon, our Django app for site invitations, kaleo, got a 1.0 release and while it was feature complete, updates were made that were not backward compatible in an effort to make things cleaner and more consistent with other Pinax apps.
It is always fun to make new releases of our open source packages, however small. This week has seen two releases so far on two different projects.
With Pinax, Gondor, Twitter Bootstrap and a bunch of Django apps written by us or others, we can get to a minimum viable project very quickly. Here's how we did it on ThoughtStreams.
