This is one of my first Django powered sites. It is my personal blog [HTML_REMOVED] picture gallery. I[HTML_REMOVED]ve made 90% of code in first 3 days, and was shocked how fast things can be done with Django.
1. Blog application. It uses standard django contrib comments, and does not use django tagging - I believe that way its easier to use. I have also incorporated (optional) Akismet spam filtering.
2. AVKGallery - that is very simple gallery. The main advantage is that my computer is the place where I store all my high quality photos, and I really don[HTML_REMOVED]t like to store photos in 2 separate places. So this gallery only indexes existing storage, it does not copy anything (DRY principle).
3. PersonalWebSite - an application which ties Blog + Gallery + templates togehter. An example of a ready to use blog.
