What is Pinax?
Pinax is an open-source platform based on Django and intended to provide a starting point for websites. It takes care of the things that many sites have in common, so you can focus on what makes your site different.
Starter projects provide project layout, scaffolding, already integrated components and ready-to-go code.
Reusable apps provide common infrastructure, back-end functionality, and user-facing components.
Themes provide default templates and stylesheets for quick prototyping and easy customization.
