Content Management System for Django (DISCONTINUED)

NOTE: this project is discontinued, I use Wagtail now and this project never made it beyond Django 1.3, the code is very old and should not be used.

Some of the dependencies of the CMS (Pillow, and pyenchant) require C libraries to be installed first, or they won't install successfully when we install them in our virtualenv.

On Ubuntu this can be done using the following command:

sudo apt-get install virtualenvwrapper python-dev python-pip libjpeg-dev libtiff-dev libfreetype6-dev liblcms2-dev python-tk tk8.5-dev libwebp-dev libenchant-dev

Installing the CMS into a virtualenv using virtualenvwrapper

mkvirtualenv rvcms
cd ~/Projects
git clone
cd rvcms
python develop


At the moment, this project is in a bit of flux, and I wouldn't recommend using it right now to start a new project.

Currently, the CMS only works with Django 1.3 and I have made some mistakes and poor descisions during early stages of development that I want to fix now with a new version, leaving the CMS in a bit of a mess at the moment.

You can read more about it on the Wiki.

Known Issues

When generating tag clouds, django-tagging can sometimes fail to generate a font size for one of the tags. This is known as issue 91 on Google Code for Django Tagging, and a patch exists called dtcw.patch, which despite having been created over 5 years ago, it has still not been accepted into the main source, so you will have to patch it yourself.

For a virtualenv, this is a bit ugly, but here you go anyway. First, download dtcw.patch and place it in your virtualenv folder, then cd into that folder and type the following:

source bin/activate
patch lib/python2.7/site-packages/django_tagging-0.3.1-py2.7.egg/tagging/ dtcw.patch
