ManyToMany Relationships in Wagtail

I'm loving Wagtail so far. There does seem to be one catch though. It doesn't handle ManyToMany relationships particularly well in the admin. In Wagtail's defence, the problem is caused by Model Cluster which Wagtail relies heavily on itself. I am in the position of wanting to link two Post-types…

Wagtail

So there I was, moaning about the current state of CSMs when I attended the Django mini-conf before PyConAu an saw Adam Brenecki's presentation: Comparing Wagtail, Django CMS and Mezzanine. For whatever reason Wagtail really appealed to me. It had a really nice interface and seemed to do a good…

On Learning Design Patterns
