django-planet ============= This is a generic application for Django projects aiming to provide a planet feed aggregator app. Django-planet is heavily based on Feedjack's  models by Gustavo Picón and my django app that extends it: feedjack-extension . Changes and addings to models were inspired by Mark Pilgrim's Feedparser .  http://www.feedjack.org/  http://code.google.com/p/feedjack-extension/  http://www.feedparser.org/ Screenshots: ------------ The following screenshots are just for demonstration purposes: * http://cloud.github.com/downloads/matagus/django-planet/post_list-my_planet.png * http://cloud.github.com/downloads/matagus/django-planet/tag_view-my_planet.png * http://cloud.github.com/downloads/matagus/django-planet/author_view-my_planet.png Summary of changes: ------------------- * Link model was dropped. * Site models replaced by django.contrib.sites.Site model :) * Tag model replaced by tagging.Tag model. * Added Blog model (a Blog may have several related Feed objects). * Subscriber model renamed to Author, and was modifyed since a Blog may have several authors. Authors may be of two types: author or contributor. * Feed model was changed. New attributes added to store info provided by Feedparser. * Added FeedLink, PostLink, Enclosure and Generator models to store info provided by Feedparser. * Custom managers for each model. * New urls and detail and list views for each new model. * CSS theme based on the minimal and beautiful Mounty Lounge Industries blog's design (http://blog.montylounge.com/) * Full template tags set: tags cloud for a blog, a feed, an author and a global one; related tags list, authors list related to a tag and feeds list related to a tag. * Added indexed to models according to expected use. * Content cleaned (css styles and some duplicated/useless spaces). TODO: ----- First: * Feeds (RSS and Atom): for all posts, for posts filtered by tag, author, blog, feed or any of its combinations. * setup.py, pack it into and egg and upload it to Python Python Package Index. * Get the first image of a post (from enclosure link or from content), download it, generate a thumbnail and asociate it to that post. Then show it in list-views! * A little sample project. Second: * Make a sample project showing how to integrate it into Pinax http://www.pinaxproject.com/ * Date-based views: by month and year * SEO improvement: custom META tags for each view, use SlugField fields for any model that has a detail view (blog, feed, post, author) and use it in its url. Like /planet/blogs/Experimetal_Etc * Use django-atomformat: http://github.com/pinax/atom-format/tree/master * Build a template tag to show a block of latest photos (ie post enclosures of type "image/*") * Improve add_feed and update_feed commands with multi processing, make them more clear and atomic, etc. * Optimized content clean & compression of each feed entry (remove duplicated/useless tags, bad spaces, and the like). Maybe: * Allow users import an OPML file with their favourite feeds. * Use django-foaf to generate foaf xml? http://code.google.com/p/django-foaf/ * Some other features inspired by semantic attributes of RSS and Atom feeds :P INSTALLATION ------------ For installation instructions, see the file INSTALL in this directory.
