I’ve finally finished a small portfolio site for a cinematographer / photographer.
Please check it out - http://www.danielgallagher.com.au
The client wanted a very stripped back and minimal website and after a few iterations we arrived at the current design, its possibly not what I would have gone with but the client is really happy.
Thanks to the Hello Web App books I learnt django enough to create this site. I prefer to use the django admin to add and edit content, don’t like the font end forms for some reason.
I used the following django plugins;
- embed_video (embed video)
- sorl.thumbnail (crop images)
- compressor (concatenate js and css)
- adminsortable2 (sort items in admin)
I used pythonanywhere.com to host the website, they have been really great, amazing customer service and great value, definitely recommend them!
