Provides a concrete implementation of the ContentBase model inside the armstrong.core.arm_content package.


You can use this as a base-class for a common "content" type. You can use this type of structure inside your Django application to allow cross-content-type queries.

If you don't need that functionality, you can extend directly from armstrong.core.arm_content.models.ContentBase to get all of the fields that are on Content without having the extra table and relationship specified.

Installation & Configuration

You can install the latest release of armstrong.apps.content using pip:

pip install armstrong.apps.content

Make sure to add armstrong.apps.content to your INSTALLED_APPS. You can add this however you like. This works as a copy-and-paste solution:

INSTALLED_APPS += ["armstrong.apps.content", ]

Once installed, you have to run either syncdb, or migrate if you are using South.
