This is a very simple example of a News Feed. You have permission to use this, tinker with it, use it as a template in your own apps.
You can find the source here: News Feed Example
Steps to Run Example:
Step 1: Create a virtual environment
I included a “requirements.txt” file that you can use to install all the dependencies for running the app.
NOTE: if you already have Django 1.9+ installed, you can probably skip this step.
$ virtualenv venv $ source venv/bin/activate $ cd news_feed $ pip install -r requirements.txt
Step 2: Run the Django app
I also included a very light weight Sqlite Database. No need to ‘migrate’ anything.
Go into the Django app and run:
$ python manage.py runserver
Step 3: Try out different URLs
There is NO authentication in this system, all you have to do is change the URL to see a different News Feed.
Here are the URLs you can try:
There is also an Admin site that you can use to change the data:
