Today then I found out about another important ingredient to the Django success story: Django Plugables. This site tracks and collects the many ready-to-use applications and plugins, contributed by Django users and developers over time, which you can just download and integrate into your Django powered site.
For example, there is a ready-made application for a complete user registration, including confirmation e-mail and all. Blogs, discussion forums, site advertising, Atom and RSS feed applications, and many more. All of them free and open source.
Having a centralised place in which to browse these available applications and plugins is important for becoming an even more efficient web developer. On its home page, Django says it is The Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. With the addition of Django Plugables I think they are definitely on the right way.

Hi, did you see there today any plugin for building threaded blogs/discussions that worth of use? There are plenty of them, but neither of them do look somewhat mature. Maybe you could advise.
