django-guestbook

A simple guestbook application for Django

What is it?

Guestbook is a simple guestbook application for the Django web-framework. It is closely based on the contributed comments application.

Guestbook is build to work against a late pre-1.0 checkout and should be 1.0-compatible.

More info about this app can be found in the blog post introducing it at: http://cooking.visualspace.nl/post/9992059/Django-Guestbook-application

Status

This app is currently being used in several small-scale production environments. However, it is probably that it still has a few kinks so feel free to submit bugfixes.

Installation

  1. Get it from the Cheese Shop:

    easy_install django-guestbook
    

    Or get the latest & greatest from Github and link it to your application tree:

    git clone git://github.com/dokterbob/django-guestbook.git
    ln -s django-guestbook/guestbook $PROJECT_DIR/guestbook
    

    (Here $PROJECT_DIR is your project root directory.)

  2. Add popularity to INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py:

    INSTALLED_APPS = (
        ...
        'guestbook',
        ...
    )
    
  3. Create required data structure:

    cd $PROJECT_DIR
    ./manage.py syncdb
    
  4. Add guestbook views to urls.py:

    urlpatterns += patterns('',
        ...
        (r'^guestbook/', include('guestbook.urls')),
        ...
    )
    
  5. Enjoy!
