Dan Fairs has started developing a SimpleDB backend. That's the sixth backend for Django-nonrel! Check out django-simpledb from github. The code is experimental and far from finished, but in a recent tweet Dan mentioned that he thinks he's very close to having the Django admin running on SimpleDB. That's huge, Dan! :) We're very close to supporting every popular NoSQL database. Guys, if you want to use Dango-nonrel with SimpleDB please help Dan with the django-simpledb backend (or help Mirko with the Redis backend if you prefer that).
