Mostly because I don't like sharing, I use pinup boards for personal inspiration boards. Also if I use a public platform like Pinterest or Wookmark then my pins run the risk of getting a DMCA take down notice. I might not even be able to pin something at all with websites now blocking tools like this. I rather bypass all these risks and just host it myself.
Pinry has two different customizable configurations:
Have virtualenv and pip installed. You may also need to have the build dependencies for PIL installed.
Note: On Ubuntu you can get the build deps by running
sudo apt-get build-dep python-imaging.
$ git clone git://github.com/overshard/pinry.git $ cd pinry $ virtualenv . $ bin/pip install -r requirements.txt $ bin/python manage.py syncdb $ bin/python manage.py migrate $ bin/python manage.py runserver
If you want a production server Google around for more information on
running Django in a production environment and edit the
pinry/settings/production.py file. I don't cover this because there are
hundreds of different ways to deploy a Django project and everyone has their own
There are a few settings provided specific to Pinry that allow you to get some of the most requested functionality easily.
- SITE_NAME: For quickly changing the name Pinry to something you prefer.
- ALLOW_NEW_REGISTRATIONS: Set to False to prevent people from registering.
- PUBLIC: Set to False to require people to register before viewing pins. (Note: Setting PUBLIC to False does still allow registrations. Make sure both PUBLIC and the previous setting are set to False to prevent all public access.)
- Non-image URL pinning
- Tagging, groups, multiple and/or user boards
- Statistics/analytics with pretty graphs
