We highly recommend using pip to install django-knowledge, the packages are regularly updated with stable releases:
pip install django-knowledge
But really, you shouldn’t do that.
Regular development happens at our GitHub repository. Grabbing the cutting edge version might give you some extra features or fix some newly discovered bugs. We recommend not installing from the git repo unless you are actively developing django-knowledge. Please don’t use it in production (and if you do, report back what broked)!
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:zapier/django-knowledge.git django-knowledge
You can add the knowledge folder inside the resulting django-knowledge to your PYTHONPATH or simply run python setup.py install to add it to your site-packages.
Visit our tags page to grab the archives of both current and previous stable releases. After unzipping or untarring, you can add the knowledge folder inside the resulting django-knowledge to your PYTHONPATH or simply run python setup.py install to add it to your site-packages.
First, you’ll want to add knowledge and django.contrib.markup to your INSTALLED_APPS. You may need to pip install markdown to cover the markup dependency.
INSTALLED_APPS = ( 'django.contrib.contenttypes', 'django.contrib.comments', 'django.contrib.sessions', 'django.contrib.sites', 'django.contrib.admin', # Your favorite apps 'django.contrib.markup', 'knowledge',)
Second, add url(r'^knowledge/', include('knowledge.urls')) to your urls.py.
urlpatterns = patterns('', url(r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)), # your url patterns url(r'^knowledge/', include('knowledge.urls')), )
Third, be sure to run python manage.py syncdb or python manage.py migrate knowledge to set up the necessary database tables.
python manage.py syncdb # or... python manage.py migrate knowledge
Finally, follow the steps outlined in the Customize section for templates and static resources. Short version, don’t forget to run python manage.py collectstatic.
python manage.py collectstatic
