Building a site with Django? Start with Pinax!

Some time ago, I watched James Tauber’s talk at DjangoCon about Pinax, a collection of re-usable Django applications. If you are thinking of a collection as a bunch of apps carelessly thrown together, you could not be more mistaken. Pinax is the foundation for a complete social networking site which covers most features you can imagine, the whole nine yards.

Forget startproject! Just do cp pinax myproject, remove some stuff you don’t need, adjust the templates and you are done!

Ok, I might be exagerating a bit, but watch the talk to build your own opinion.
