Today we released a simple app for the open source Mezzanine CMS. The app adds a “Person” content model to a Mezzanine CMS that allows administrators to easily categorize and list people on their site. You might see this sort of thing on a “team” page or a list of staff members such as we have at the Humboldt Community Christian School site we built recently.
We released the app under a very permissive open source license that allows anyone to use and modify it how they wish. We’ve benefited from lots of fantastic open source software (Mezzanine is a prime example) and this is a small way for us to give back. Lest you think this is a truly selfless act, having the package available on the Python Package Index (PyPI) makes it much easier for us to incorporate and deploy the functionality for sites we build.
