The develop branch of Arkestra at GitHub is a substantial update over the current master branch.
* Django 1.4 compatibility
* django CMS 2.3 compatibility
* Django Filer develop branch compatibility
* pip-based installation
Between them they make installing and maintaining an Arkestra system far easier. Installation in fact is simply:
pip install -e git+https://github.com/evildmp/Arkestra.git@pip#egg=Arkestra # install Arkestra & dependencies
pip install -r src/arkestra/REQUIREMENTS.txt # install the things that pip can't do automatically
Arkestra no longer uses its own fork of Django Filer. It does however mean that scheme and data changes are required for existing sites, if they already have videos.
I suspect that the only one which does is the School of Medicine's, and if that's correct it will save me having to create a data migration to deal with the changes.
I'd like to know if any other Arkestra sites are using the video functionality in order to make a decision about this.
