Aldryn Addons Framework

pypi build coverage

Aldryn Addons are re-usable django apps that follow certain conventions to abstract out complicated configuration from the individual django website project into upgradable packages. With this approach it is possible to avoid repetitive "add this to INSTALLED_APPS and that to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES and add these to urls.py" work. The settings logic is bundled with the addon and only interesting "meta" settings are exposed. It is a framework to utilise such addons in django projects.

The goal is to keep the footprint inside the django website project as small as possible, so updating things usually just mean bumping a version in requirements.txt and no other changes in the project.

This addon still uses the legacy "Aldryn" naming. You can read more about this in our support section.

Installation

aldryn-addons is part of the Divio Cloud platform.

For a manual install:

Add aldryn-addons to your projects requirements.txt or pip install it. It is also highly recommended to install aldryn-django. This is django itself bundled as an addon:

pip install aldryn-addons aldryn-django==1.6.11

At the top if the settings.py add the following code snippet:

INSTALLED_ADDONS = [
    'aldryn-django',
]

# add your own settings here that are needed by the installed Addons

import aldryn_addons.settings
aldryn_addons.settings.load(locals())

# add any other custom settings here

Addons can automatically add code to the root urls.py so it's necessary to add aldryn_addons.urls.patterns() and aldryn_addons.urls.i18n_patterns(). The code below is for Django 1.8 and above. For older versions of Django, please add the prefix parameter to i18n_patterns: i18n_patterns('', ...

from django.conf.urls import url, include
from django.conf.urls.i18n import i18n_patterns
import aldryn_addons.urls


urlpatterns = [
    # add your own patterns here
] + aldryn_addons.urls.patterns() + i18n_patterns(
    # add your own i18n patterns here
    url(r'^myapp/', include('myapp.urls')),
    *aldryn_addons.urls.i18n_patterns()  # MUST be the last entry!
)

Please follow the installation instructions for aldryn-django for complete integration. Then follow the setup instructions for aldryn-django-cms for the examples below.

Adding Addons

In this example we're going to install django CMS Link, which requires Aldryn django CMS.

pip install the Addon:

pip install djangocms-link

Add it to INSTALLED_ADDONS in settings.py:

INSTALLED_ADDONS = [
    'aldryn-django',
    'aldryn-cms',
    'djangocms-link',
]

Copy aldryn_config.py and addon.json from the addon into the addons directory within your project (addons/djangocms-link/aldryn_config.py and addons/djangocms-link/addon.json). If aldryn_config.py defines any settings on the settings Form, put them in addons/djangocms-link/settings.json, if not put {} into it.

Note

The need to manually copy aldryn_config.py and addon.json is due to legacy compatibility with the Divio Cloud platform and will no longer be necessary in a later release.

Note

Future versions will include a little webserver with a graphical UI to edit the settings in settings.json, much like it is provided on the Divio Cloud platform.

You are all set. The code in aldryn_config.py will take care of configuring the addon.

Running Tests

You can run tests by executing:

virtualenv env
source env/bin/activate
pip install -r tests/requirements.txt
python setup.py test
