A extendable category app using django-mptt for django-shop.

https://travis-ci.org/fivethreeo/django-shop-categories.png?branch=develop

Installation

For the current stable version:

pip install django-shop-categories

For the development version:

pip install -e git+git://github.com/fivethreeo/django-shop-categories.git#egg=django-shop-categories

Running tests:

git clone git://github.com/fivethreeo/django-shop-categories.git
cd django-shop-categories
virtualenv test_env
source ./test_env/bin/activate
pip install -r requirements.txt
python runtests.py

Configuration

Add shop_categories and treeadmin to settings.INSTALLED_APPS.

Set SHOP_PRODUCT_MODEL to shop_categories.models.defaults.product.default.CategoryProduct.

In your urls.py add this before your shop patterns:

urlpatterns += patterns('',
    url(r'^catalog/', include('shop_categories.urls')),
)

Then run:

manage.py syncdb

Extending the Category model

In your own app make a models dir with __init__.py and a category.py dir, like so:

app/models/__init__.py
app/models/category.py

Note: Do not import the model from category.py in __init__.py, the model should NOT be in a "real" models module as this will cause the overridden Category model to be defined twice.

In category.py:

from django.db import models
from shop_categories.models.defaults.category.base import ProductCategoryBase

class Category(ProductCategoryBase):

    image = models.ImageField(upload_to='categoryimages/', null=True, blank=True)

    class Meta:
        abstract = False
        app_label = 'app'

Set SHOP_CATEGORIES_CATEGORY_MODEL to ('app.models.category.Category, 'app')

Register your custom category model in admin.py:

from shop_categories.models import Category
from shop_categories.admin import ProductCategoryAdmin

admin.site.register(Category, ProductCategoryAdmin)

Then, assuming your Product model is not already synced, run:

manage.py syncdb

Extending the Product model

When extending Product models in your shop make sure they subclass from shop_categories.models.defaults.product.base.CategoryProductBase to add the Category Foreignkey and M2M fields.
