Bambu Comments

Generic model commenting

About Bambu Comments

This package provides a secure, spam-aware, approval-based commenting system for Django models. Used in conjunction with an Akismet API key, it will keep spam from hitting inboxes, and works with other tools in the Bambu toolset to provide notifications and perform other actions.

Comments are sanitised before being posted, so you don’t need to run them through a bunch of filters.

About Bambu Tools 2.0

This is part of a toolset called Bambu Tools. It’s being moved from a namespace of bambu to its own ‘root-level’ package, along with all the other tools in the set. If you’re upgrading from a version prior to 2.0, please make sure to update your code to use bambu_comments rather than bambu.comments.


Install the package via Pip:

pip install bambu-comments

Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS list:


Run syncdb or migrate to setup the database tables.
