Learn Django: Create a Wiki in 20 minutes [ID:332] (1/3)

in series: Learn Django: Create a Wiki in 20 minutes

video tutorial by Siddhi, added 07/07

(Showmedo is undergoing major changes. To report any problems viewing the videos please email us and include browser and OS specifics. Cheers - Kyran.)

In this tutorial, I introduce the basics of Django by walking you through the development of a simple wiki application.

We'll see how you can design your URLs, interact with the database and use the Django template library. As an added bonus, we'll also include support for editing pages using Markdown syntax [ http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/ ].

By the end, you'll see how little time and code it takes to get a simple application up and running.

great webcast.

Would be great if you could provide the wiki project as a download.

Also, is mardown standard with Django, or does it have to be installed? I've used textile and I was required to install it separately.

Again, fantastic webcast. I really look forward to watching the other three in this series.


thanks it is good

Really clear and simple introduction. I might try it out as a kata myself. Thanks for your efforts of putting this screencast together.

BTW: I really enjoyed the faint sounds of the streets of Chennai in the background.

While working my way through the "Python Web Development with Django" book, this video was helpful in summarizing what I am still getting my head around. Django is a powerful tool. Thanks.


328. Rick Landau Fri, 11 Jun 2010 07:23

Very nice demo, thank you. I particularly like adding the functions one at a time as they are needed.


That was just great...

I got it, and I'm going to make a wiki soon - it's so easy!!


just like many others, I appreciated having this tutorial. one small note maxlength has been deprecated, and replaced with max_length.


Very well presented. I look forward to more Django tutorials

Thank you

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Siddhi
