Learn Django: Adding tags to the wiki [ID:513] (3/3)

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

video tutorial by Siddhi, added 02/08

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

Following on from the previous two screencasts, we add the ability to create and edit tags for wiki pages. In the process, we'll see how to create relations between Django model objects using the ManyToManyField. With a few lines of code, and thirty minutes of time, we'll have a wiki with tags.

Very nice screencast series!

Helped me a lot to get to think the django way.


Great series! They gave me the inspiration to get started with Python myself, as well as concidering Django.

I'm wondering, what is the db structure generated by the models in the third series?

Wonderful series! Thank you for doing these. You are very clear, and it's great to see you edit and debug things as you go, plus get a taste of the various editors you use.

Just finished all three in the wiki set. Good work.

Thanks for contributing to the community.

I noticed on google search for 'django video' this showmedo series is listed 2nd.

It would really help if you did more of these video tutorials. Dealing with creating admin sites and user authentication.

Also, does Django have something that can help with mutiple uploads of files, specially media files like .jpg?

Thanks much, your tutorials really helped in understanding the concepts of django, specially since I am not a programmer.


48. anonymous Fri, 27 Nov 2009 03:21

I viewed all 3 tutorials on how to create a wiki system. I enjoyed them a lot, very useful! Thank you so much!

Watched all three videos. It was very informative since I am just starting to grow my interest in python/django. It really motivates to seek more knowledge. Thank you.

hey siddhi

my name is keith and i am a student in ireland and i have to do a project and i was looking at your videos and they are great they showed me alot for my project but there is one thing missing and i was wondering if you could help me. and its with semantic wiki's.

with my project the main thing is too look at semantic wikis and have my own wiki up and running and you with your videos have helped me so much i was just wondering if you knew how to put it into the wiki that you have already written?

oh and one other question i noticed that in the three different videos that you use different programs to wirte it i was going to start writing my own wiki with netbeans do you know if that would work??

thank you so much for you time

This is a great lesson that introduces and clarifies many important concepts in django.


Awesome tutorials so far! Could you provide lessons for user creation, authentication, and permissions (i.e., for editing/creating pages)?


35. anonymous Wed, 25 Mar 2009 07:49

Very good tutorials, everything was explained very well. A++


34. anonymous Mon, 16 Mar 2009 19:26

very helpful and instructive. please go ahead with some more videos.

thank you very much.


Great series. I will use your examples in my work at the office, and it will save me a lot of time.

A thousand thanks!

Part of the learning experience is making this work in Django 1.0. Minor tweaks here and there to make most of it work (I can't get wikify to work yet on 1.0 but it is not important for me at this point). About to finish this third video on tagging. Thank you so much Siddhi. This is a generous contribution, and it speaks well of the Python/Django community!

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
