Django SHOP simple categories

This companion application to django-SHOP provides an example of how shop deployers could implement a simple category system.

It is perfectly usable as a simple category system.

In basic setup, you can select products on category admin page. If you want to set categories in product admin page, subclass ProductWithCategoryForm, set Meta option model to your product model, and set this form as your product form:

from shop_simplecategories.admin import ProductWithCategoryForm

class ProductForm(ProductWithCategoryForm):
    class Meta(object):
        model = Product

class ProductAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    form = ProductForm

For your convenience we have added the templatetags show_root_categories and show_root_with_child_categories for you. The first will outputs all root categories and the second one outputs all root categories with it's child (if present):

{% load shop_simplecategories_tags %}

<ul>{% show_root_categories %}</ul>


<ul>{% show_root_with_child_categories %}</ul>

If you want to manipulate the output of that template tag, just override the templates shop_simplecategories/show_root_categories.html and/or shop_simplecategories/show_root_with_child_categories.html .


If you want to run the testsuite make sure you have a virtual environment that includes django and django-shop and run:

cd shop_simplecategories/tests/
You can’t perform that action at this time.
