I have recently set up Wagtail for a simple blog. Wagtail is bulit on top of Django and uses many of the same features, but there are a few differences in the way you use it, so I thought it was worth writing it down so other devs familiar with Django can get up to speed a bit quicker than I did. All the information is in the documentaion, but as there is quite a lot of it, hopefully this will save you some time.
Django model forms are great and easy to use if you are using them in the standard way - i.e. a one to one mapping between fields in the form and fields in the model, not doing anything unusual with them. When you want a ModelForm to do something a bit different it gets a little trickier, but it is possible to do a fair bit of cusomization and still get the benefits of using Class Based Views with ModelForms.
Writin a blog about coding, its useful to be able to display code in a readable way.
Using an email address rather than username for logging in to a Django application.
Ok, not really as I tried google blogger, and wordpress before, but didn’t like them much. This is however my first blog post using Jekyll - a static site generator.
