Pinax is an open-source platform built on the Django Web Framework. By integrating numerous reusable Django apps and providing starter projects and infrastructure tools, Pinax takes care of the things that many sites have in common so you can focus on what makes your site different.

Pinax has been used for everything from social networks to conference websites, and from intranets to online games.

Pinax provides:

  • standard project layout for consistency and easy deployment
  • starter projects that can be used as the basis for any Django website as well as some tailored to community sites, company sites, intranets and sites in closed beta
  • reusable apps providing both back-end functionality and user-facing components
  • default templates to enable quick prototyping
