A content management platform built using the Django framework
  1 Screenshot
Mezzanine is a content management platform built using the Django framework. It is licensed under the BSD license and designed to provide both a consistant interface for managing content, and a simple archtiecture that makes diving in and hacking on the code as easy as possible.

Its goal is to resemble something like Wordpress, with an intuitive interface for managing pages and blog posts. Mezzanine takes a different approach from a lot of other Django applications in this space like Pinax or Mingus that glue together a lot of reusable apps, instead opting to provide most of its functionality included with the project by default.


Assuming you have setuptools installed, the easiest method is to install directly from Pypi by running the following command, which will also attempt to install the dependencies mentioned above:

easy_install -U mezzanine

Otherwise you can download Mezzanine and install it directly from source:

python install

Once installed the command mezzanine-project should be available which can be for creating a new Mezzaine project in a similar fashion to

mezzanine-project project_name
