Provides a concrete implementation of ContentBase

pip install armstrong.apps.articles==1.1.2



Provides a basic Article model for Armstrong


You can use the Article model from within any project you like. It's available to import like this:

from armstrong.apps.articles.models import Article

You have access to both traditional Manager via the objects property as well as a PublishedManager from armstrong.core.arm_content via the published property.

Installation & Configuration

You can install the latest release of armstrong.apps.articles using pip:

pip install armstrong.apps.articles

Make sure to add armstrong.apps.articles and armstrong.apps.content to your INSTALLED_APPS. You can add this however you like. This works as a copy-and-paste solution:

INSTALLED_APPS += ["armstrong.apps.articles", "armstrong.apps.content", ]

armstrong.apps.content is required because Article extends from the Content model inside apps.content.

Once installed, you have to run either syncdb, or migrate if you are using South.
