Pinax on GitHub

The Pinax Project, a premiere up and coming platform for rapidly developing Django sites, now lives on GitHub at http://github.com/pinax/pinax.

Cloud27 is an example of what can be done with Pinax.

The features overview is very impressive:

  • openid support
  • email verification
  • password management
  • site announcements
  • a notification framework
  • user-to-user messaging
  • friend invitation (both internal and external to the site)
  • a basic twitter clone
  • oembed support
  • gravatar support
  • interest groups (called tribes)
  • projects with basic task and issue management
  • threaded discussions
  • wikis with multiple markup support
  • blogging
  • bookmarks
  • tagging
  • contact import (from vCard, Google or Yahoo)
  • photo management

Having personally coded almost half of those features for GitHub (and other sites in the past), I’d say this is a huge potential time saver worth a look.
