Django-Threaded-Messages

This app is very similar to the Messaging System on Facebook. There are tests, but they are from the project I forked it from. I will update and improve them once I get around to it.

Features

  • Each Message is a thread with participants and messages
  • Inbox with filter for read and unread messages
  • Outbox
  • Fulltext search support using Haystack
  • Users are notified using django-notification when new messages arrive
  • Batch update to set messages to read/unread/delete
  • Ajax posting of messages within thread
  • Can be used with jquery.tokeninput to offer a similar usuability as Facebook when it comes to selecting recipients.
  • Installable using pip and easy_install
  • Modular message sending using facebox

User Search

The app comes with a very basic user search component. If you want to extend it or adapt it to your needs look at views.recipient_search. Adapt your own version in a seperate app and then change the call in your compose templates:

$("#id_recipient").tokenInput("{% url recipient_search %}?format=json", parameters)

to point to your custom view.

Dependencies

  • Haystack
  • Django-notification
  • django-avatar
  • django-pagination
  • django-uni-form

Install

pip install -e http://github.com/philippWassibauer/django-threaded-messages.git#egg=threaded-messages

There are two other repositories doing this (one of them is not maintained anymore):

I am not sure what the exact differences are to this implementation. I am pretty certain that they don't include read/unread, fulltext search, pip install etc.
