Djangobb comes as a Django project, not as a Django package. We changed the following things:

  • We refactored it into a package
  • Added a so it can be installed via pip/pypi
  • Added the possibility to run it without xapian installed on the machine (only the search won't work now)
  • The media files structure plays nice with the staticfiles app. No need to copy files manually.
  • Adapted it to work for Django1.2 (was mostly the csrf token). We die not fully test this yet

So install it by putting: -e hg+ into your requirements.txt and add djangobb to your INSTALLED_APPS. or pip install -e hg+ -------------------------
