Vikuit is an advanced social networking engine optimized for Google App Engine. It aims to possess every feature for a social network engine while remaining easy to deploy and manage. It is built with Python and is focused on running on Google App Engine (GAE). Vikuit is intended to fill the gap between software-as-a-service platforms like Ning and on-site deployments. Its key features include articles and news, support for multiple languages, groups, Google native authentication, microbloging, following a user, profiles and profile comments, comments, photo galleries, full searching, user dashboard, and recent activity. For developers, Vikuit uses themes based on jinja templates and special modules, called Vikuitlets, that provide an easy way to extend it.
