Just uploaded a quick screencast showing how to build a blog in Django in just 30 minutes (plus a couple of seconds :) ). It shows off a lot of new features that we have in Django since 1.2.
It basically covers:
django.contrib.adminto create fully-featured admin pages
- Adding tags to posts easily using taggit app
- Class-based generic views for rapidly building pages (New in Django 1.3)
- Using template inheritance and filters
django.contrib.syndicationfor a simple feed
It is best to watch it directly at Youtube in HD. This was my first screencast so I apologize if something is not properly done.
I plan to add a short bonus video soon demonstrating how this bare-bones blog can be restyled into a modern-looking HTML5 site (UPDATE: Bonus video is up now).
UPDATE: The source code for the created project has been uploaded to github
