30 Second Tour of Armstrong

Armstrong is an open-source News Publishing Platform built on top of Django. 90% of all media websites are the same. Armstrong gives you that first 90% and lets you focus on the parts of your organization that make you unique.

Armstrong provides a lot of CMS bits, but its main focus is developer- friendliness. It works great as a replacement for other CMS/bloggy-type systems when you have a tech team or consultant that can help get you off the ground.

Want to see it in action? Here’s the commands to run:

pip install armstrong
armstrong init --template=demo demo-site
cd demo-site
armstrong runserver

Armstrong is the result of a collaboration between the Texas Tribune and the Bay Citizen and a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
