Looking under the hood of Pinax

This was originally posted on blogger here.

I've started to look around because one of the requirements I'll have to follow is to change the 'Tribes' section to be called something else like 'Groups' or 'Crews'. Of course I compared it to some of the other frameworks I've played with, and here are some thoughts. I went from module to module of Pinax, and found some nice commonalities that made me happy:

  • There is a minimum of boilerplate. Everything is doing something meaningful.
  • Django models are easy to read.
  • Relating your Django model to the User is easy.
  • Django forms are straightforward.
  • No interfaces!
More to come as I play.
