Simple Django application for the management of a lists of links. Originally designed for managing a dynamic list of links in a footer but can be used wherever a named set of links is required. Also provides the ability to reorder a existing list of links.

Instalation

First install the code somewhere on your python path. The packaged setup.py file will let you do this via setuptools is that’s your thing.

python setup.py install

Next add linklist to your INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py for your project.

INSTALLED_APPS += (
    'linklist',
)

Next we need to specify a few paths so the application can find templates and assets used for the admin. We’ll do this dynamically so as to avoid having to make local modifications.

import os
import linklist
# we calculate the file location of the images used for the admin
LINKLIST_ROOT = os.path.dirname(os.path.realpath(linklist.__file__))
# we want to append
TEMPLATE_DIRS += (
    os.path.join(LINKLIST_ROOT, 'templates'),
)
LINKLIST_MEDIA_URL = '/assets/'
LINKLIST_MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join(LINKLIST_ROOT, 'assets')

You’ll also want to add a couple of things to urls.py. These are for the admin only and not needed on the front end.

from django.conf import settings

And add an extra rule to your urlpatterns:

(r'^assets/(?P<path>.*)$', 'django.views.static.serve', {
    'document_root': settings.LINKLIST_MEDIA_ROOT
})
