django-ticker
=============
django-ticker is a reusable Django_ application that provides a ticker like
news section including row level permissions. What does this mean?
In django-ticker you have a fine grained permission control what the
(administrative) user can do and what not. Besides the default Django
permissions -- add, change, delete -- there are some extra permissions:
- change_foreign
- publish
Originally this was created for the news section of the `German Django community`_
where foreign users could add articles but had no permission to publish
them, cause a moderator must check these articles first.
It's easy to create a pressroom like workflow, assumed we have different
people with different permissions:
The freelance journalist:
Granted permissions: add, change
- can add articles
- can change his articles (only his own)
- can not delete his articles
- can set the status of the article to "closed" or "draft". Draft means,
that the article is ready for check by a moderator.
- in the admin list of articles, they see only they own
The journalist:
Granted permissions: add, change, delete, publish
- can add articles
- can change and delete his articles (only his own)
- can set the status of the article to "closed", "draft" or "published"
- in the admin list of articles, they see only their own
The chief editor (or moderator):
Granted permissions: add, change, delete, publish, change_foreign
- can add articles
- can change and delete all (!) articles
- can set the status of the article to "closed", "draft" or "published"
- in the admin list of articles, they see all articles
The proofreader (or subject specialist):
Granted permissions: change, change_foreign
- can not add articles
- can not delete articles
- can not publish articles
- can change all articles (e.g. for correction)
- in the admin list of articles, they see all articles
So, you can mix these permissions and create a workflow that perfectly
fits your needs.
