I run a web site that I feel would benefit from askbot. The site itself (Drupal based) needs a serious upgrade and I am thinking it might be better to custom build a site using Django, some forum software, askbot and some other (possibly custom) stuff.
Is the idea that askbot will be easy to integrate into such an environment?
It is quite easy
with the one limitation at this point (to be resolved in the future) - that you will have to use askbot's built-in user authentication system.
There is also a point of potential inconvenience: askbot patches the
django.contrib.auth.models.User model, which is not a good practice. This needs to be fixed too, but so far I have not heard that this was a showstopper.
Other than that - askbot is a django app, not a dedicated site, it is possible to add other apps to the project.
Python is great, I've switched from php to python a while ago, no regrets.
