Sphene Community Tools (SCT) - http://sct.sphene.net Copyright (C) by Herbert Poul (herbert.poul@gmail.com)

Sphene Community Tools are django applications to build communities and similiar websites designed to be easily pluggable into any django project to build. It currently consists of a forum, wiki and blog application.

3.2. Directories

3.3. Requirements

3.4. Installation

(Note: Since 0.6 SCT also comes with an experimental setup.py - if you are using (e.g. by executing: python setup.py install) please provide feedback on http://sct.sphene.net/ or herbert.poul@gmail.com if it worked or if you encountered any problems.)

To find instructions on how to setup a simple project for using forum and wiki see our tutorial at: http://sct.sphene.net/wiki/show/Tutorial/

3.4.1. Python library path

You need to add sphenecoll/ to your python include path.

3.4.2. Maintenance cron job (Optional)

To recaulcate heat for forum threads and similar, you should add the following cronjob to run once a day (or similar)

/path/to/your/django/project/manage.py sph_maintenance

3.4.3. Cache

SCT makes use of django caching framework - it is therefore advised to configure CACHE_BACKEND django setting & co. look at the django caching documentation

3.4.4. Search

Please follow the search documentation.

3.5. Examples

There are currently two examples - a very simplistic 'simpleproject' in the examples/ directory (see examples/simpleproject/README) and a more sophisticated example called CommunityDraft which i recommend as using as a base for your own projects (if you start from scratch). See http://sct.sphene.net/wiki/show/CommunityDraft/ for details.

4. Examples

The most complete example on how to use SCT in a web site is the CommunityDraft - it is bundled in releases and is the best way to get started. (http://sct.sphene.net uses an unmodified version of CommunityDraft)

SCT also contains a very simplistic example under communitytools/examples/simpleproject (see Tutorial).
