What is it?
Portlets are content objects which are managed in Slots. Slots can be freely defined and placed anywhere within a HTML page.
Portlets are usual content objects, that means they can have arbitrary fields and functionalities.
There are also some more advanced features like inheriting and blocking of portlets.
django-portlets provides just a generic engine to manage portlets. You can find a comprehensive implementation within LFS.
django-portlets comes with a simple example application which shows how to use it.
