Zamtools-news is a simple Django application for generating a single news feed.

Zamtools-news has been kept intentionally spartan and is intended to be used for delivering site news or updates.

Benefits:

* Bare bones approach
* RSS Support
* Custom views that mimic generic view contexts, but return more consistently named variables
* Ready-made templates
* Markup support
* Tests included

Installation:

Add zamtools-news to your project directory or put it somewhere on the PYTHONPATH.

You can also use easy_install.

> easy_install zamtools-news

In your settings.py file, add zamtools-news to the INSTALLED_APPS.

INSTALLED_APPS = (
 'news',
)


Optionally define the following settings in your settings.py file.

NEWS_NUM_RECENT = 10
NEWS_PAGE_SIZE = 10

NEWS_FEED_TITLE = 'Recent Articles'
NEWS_FEED_DESCRIPTION = 'Recent Articles'
NEWS_FEED_LINK = '/news/'


Synchronize your database.

> python manage.py syncdb

Configure your urls.py to include the news urls.

urlpatterns = patterns('',
 (r'^news/', include('news.urls')),
)
