DjangoSites - We Want YOU!

Posted by Ross Poulton on Mon 13 August 2007 #djangosites #geeky #django #programming

I've just approved another batch of sites bringing the total to 260. I've also had to delete a few sites that were submitted due to a number of reasons: A handful were submitted that are obviously not Django (providing your link as /index.php is a give away) and a few have been submitted that are inaccessible URL's.

If you've got a website built with Django, we'd love for you to submit it. There are about 600-700 sites listed on the wiki page, if we can get most of those moved over to it'd be fantastic. It's a great way to show off what's out there in the wild that's powered by Django, and a great way to get feedback on your sites.

For those learning Django, it's also a great way to see how others have built their sites. Our listing of sites with publicly available source is growing every week, and is a great way to view how different problems have been tackled.

In the meantime, maddiin and I are working on a repository for Django-powered applications. There are plenty of projects out there (especially on Google Code), however having listed together in one place can only be a good thing. At a glance, you'll be able to see what version of Django and Python you need for a given application, and you can set your user preferences to only show applications that run on your version of Django so you aren't constantly looking at potentially incompatible applications. Keep your eyes here for more upcoming information about this.
