django-phpbb - Django-PhpBB integration

In case of django-phpbb, using it means that when you're coding a Django application, you have a set of classes and functions at your disposal, providing a glue between phpBB3 and Django.

Authentication

A prerequisite: Django authentication

First, prerequisites. Make sure your Django authentication is working.

If your Django website uses authentication already, you probably have the following lines in your urls.py.

(r'^accounts/login/$', 'django.contrib.auth.views.login', ),
(r'^accounts/logout/$', 'django.contrib.auth.views.logout', ),

If there are no such lines in your urls.py, your application probably doesn't use authentication. Consult the Django documentation for instructions to get your authentication to work.

PYTHONPATH

The django-phpbb directory must be in PYTHONPATH (or sys.path).

Adding phpbb3 authentication backend

Edit your settings.py and make sure the following lines are present:

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
    ...
    'django.contrib.auth.middleware.AuthenticationMiddleware',
)
TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = (
    ...
    "django.core.context_processors.auth",
)
INSTALLED_APPS = (
    'django.contrib.auth',
    ...
    'phpbb',
)
AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = (
    'phpbb.backends.PhpbbBackend',
    'django.contrib.auth.backends.ModelBackend',
)

Once you've done that, the authentication backend should be enabled and users should be able to log in using not only Django passwords, but also passwords checked against the phpbb3 database.

phpBB3 classes

You can access phpBB3 forum objects using provided classes. Look up the source code to see the details of the classes. (Sorry for not providing any better documentation at this time.)

Fire up Django shell and try using django-phpbb classes:

./manage.py shell
from django.contrib.phpbb import models as p3m
forum = p3m.PhpbbForum.objects.get(pk=1)
dir(forum)
forum.forum_name
forum.phpbbtopic_set.all()[:5]

Predefined views

You need to have a base.html template that django-phpbb's template expect to extend.

To enable predefined views, add this line to your urls.py:

(r'^forum/', include('phpbb.urls')),

Also, make django-phpbb templates available:

TEMPLATE_DIRS = (
    ...
    "/some-directory/django-phpbb/phpbb/templates",
)

The views currently contain bits and pieces of the original website they've been cut from. The views are going to be reworked. Consider them more as a guide to see how you can implement your own forum browsing rather than a complete solution.
