A Django wrapper for MapLoom.

Installation

Install the latest stable version from PIP:

pip install django-maploom

Download django-maploom and install it directly from source:

python setup.py install

Project Configuration

Once installed you can configure your project to use django-maploom with the following steps.

Add maploom to INSTALLED_APPS in your project's settings module:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    'maploom',
    # other apps
)

Usage

Once installed, you can easily add maploom to any template on your site.

First load the template tags in your template:

{% load maploom_tags %}

In the <head> section of your html section add the MapLoom js files:

{% maploom_js %}

Then add a map loom map to your page by placing the following tag anywhere in the <body> tags:

{% maploom_html %}

Adding in GeoNode

To use MapLoom as your GeoNode map client, follow the Project Configuration steps above. Next, add the MapLoom urls to the bottom of the urls.py file in GeoNode and append them to the GeoNode url patterns.

from maploom.geonode.urls import urlpatterns as maploom_urls

urlpatterns += maploom_urls

Note: When adding maploom to the INSTALLED_APPS setting, order matters. Django will return the first template it finds that matches a given name, therefore be sure that the MapLoom application precedes the geonode.maps application in your INSTALLED_APPS setting.
