How is this website run?

This is a django website with a twist: all content is stored in text files. The files are managed with git. A little script loads those files into the database and then django serves them.

Where can I get the code for this?

The code is available on github, Luis Pedro's Github repo or my fork.


  • Your website is using django. This means that it's easy to add any functionality you want.
  • Out of the box, it supports:
    • Restructured text or text2tags articles (pages such as this one)
    • menus
    • raw files (for images and such)
    • a conference system
    • a blog

The main point is that the architechture is easily extensible, read more about it on [Luis's pages]
