Pocoo: A Python Bulletin Board

Want an open-source Python application for hosting your own bulletin board software / message board / forum / what'cha'call-it? Help is on it's way thanks to the fine folks at Pocoo. Though only version 0.1, this app has a nice editor, threaded posts, an extensible authentication scheme and what looks on quick glance to be nicely written and documented code.

Since Pocoo is written using SQLAlchemy, it supports many databases transparently. It is also WSGI compliant. Jinja is used for templating. The web site is clear and contains with a fully-operational demo.

This is a big step towards filling a gap in Python application software. If you have some spare time maybe you'd like to help the development team out?

I wish I could remove that last spam, but for some reason I cannot. Sorry.

Pocoo has now expanded into all sorts of different but related apps, including Zine, for blogging.
