This app provides an interactive calendar that manages events (including recurring events) a la Google Calendar. I started off by contributing some fixes and some new convenience functions. More recently I added a bunch of beautified and inter-linked calendar views and associated templatetags, templates and CSS. I also added in the optional use of the ui-datepicker from jquery to improve event editing.
Based on my results I have been added as a committer to this project. My changes have been integrated into django-schedule and should be fully reflected in the forthcoming Pinax 0.7 release.
Kevin Fricovsky created the initial version of this app. I recently upgraded it by including grouping, a user submission capability and some other useful capabilities. My improvements were recently added to this project and this app is now slated to be included in the Pinax 0.7 release.
I put together this simple reusable social bulletin board app on a Saturday and dressed it up a bit more and posted it the next day. Reaction from the Django community has been positive thus far. I think I really nailed this one in terms of making a Django app extensible and customizable. I expect this app to be added to Pinax shortly.
Pinax is a django-based framework that delivers a customizable social web site. While Pinax is still in the "wet paint" phase, it shows great potential. I am actively using it to deliver social web capabilities for current clients.
I have started making small fixes directly to Pinax starting with patches for Issue 111 which add logout redirection support. I am also involved with the effort to add generalized groups to Pinax and have created my own experimental implementation. I also am interested in improving the mechanisms for integrating templates and media from external apps.
I have created a template generator for Django templates that dovetails with the BlueprintCSS framework. I used that generator to create this webpage as well as a page for a commercial client:
My current focus is to hook this generator up with a Django "paglet" model in order to make it easy to deliver django based dynamic "cockpits" that can optionally support selectable layouts to site visitors.
I have designed and mostly implemented a social bookmarking app that is geared towards facilitating knowledge transfer on a subject by subject basis. It is designed to facilitate my own learning process. At this point I don't have a good sense for the general applicability of this tool, but I have some hope that it might find some use especially for virtual classrooms.
I acquired a serviceable domain name and plan to launch this project into the wild in the near future.
