Installing Cubane’s backend system

First, you need to list the backend system in Django’s INSTALLED_APPS. We use Cubane’s add_apps() helper method in the following example:


The backend system also provides a way to manage user accounts. If you would like to use this component, you need to load cubane.backend.accounts as well:


Finally, your file needs to attach the backend to the URL structure of your application. A typical file for a CMS-enabled website may look like this:

from django.conf.urls import url, include
from django.contrib.sitemaps import views as sitemaps_views
from cubane.backend.views import Backend
from cubane.cms.views import get_cms
from cubane.urls import *
from cubane import views as cubane_views

backend = Backend()
cms = get_cms()


urlpatterns += [
    # admin
    url(r'^admin/', include(backend.urls)),

    # sitemap and robots
    url(r'^sitemap\.xml$', sitemaps_views.sitemap, {'sitemaps': cms.sitemaps}),
    url(r'^robots\.txt$', cubane_views.robots_txt),

    # cms
    url(r'^', include(cms.urls)),

Please note that we are creating a new instance of the backend system here and then attaching it to the url structure of our application. And that’s it. You now have Cubane’s backend system available via the following URL: http://localhost:8000/admin/.


In DEBUG mode, after installing a new Cubane application, the default username and password for the backend system are:

Username: admin
Password: password

In production mode, however, you will be required to change your password after the first login.
