mezzanine-agenda

This plugin gives you Event functionality for your Mezzanine sites. Very similiar to mezzanine-events but rather than implementing Events as a custom Page object and managing through the Pages admin it is it's own content type that is managed on its own, similiar to Blog Posts. This allows for standard viewing and filtering of these events based on the date.

Features

  • Show your visitors where to go
    • Embed a map of the location in one line of code with the Google Static Maps template tag
    • Provide a "Get Directions" link so users can go there in one click
  • Let your visitors add a single event or subscribe to all future events in Google Calendar, Outlook, iCal and more with Google Calendar and webcal:// URLs and iCalendar files
  • Filter events by date, location and author
  • RSS/Atom feeds
  • Event featured image
  • Event comments/ratings

Installation

  • Run pip install mezzanine-agenda (or, if you want to hack on mezzanine-agenda, clone it and run pip install -e path/to/repo)
  • Add "mezzanine_agenda" to your INSTALLED_APPS
  • Add ("^%s/" % settings.EVENT_SLUG, include("mezzanine_agenda.urls")) to your urls.py
  • Set either the TIME_ZONE or EVENT_TIME_ZONE settings. (If neither of these settings are set, the Google Calendar links will not work as expected.)
  • Migrate your database
  • Create RichText Page Events similiar to Blog (can be done via python manage.py loaddata events_page or through admin). Ensure the page slug = settings.EVENT_SLUG.

Creating Templates

In addition to the documentation here, take a look at how the default templates in the mezzanine_agenda/templates directory are written.

Event List pages

The template for an Event List page is templates/agenda/event_list.html.

Iterate over events to get at the events inside the container. You can then use all of the properties and template tags listed above on these objects.

Event Detail pages

The template for an Event Detail page is templates/agenda/event_detail.html.

The Event object is available at event. It has the following properties:

  • Dates and times: start, end
  • Location info: location.address, location.mappable_location, lat, lon
  • Featured Image: featured_image

Template Tags

The following template tags and filters can be used:

  • {% event_months as months %} - Put a list of dates for events into the template context.
  • {% event_locations as locations %} - Put a list of locations for events into the template context.
  • {% event_authors as authors %} - Put a list of authors (users) for events into the template context.
  • {% recent_events limit=5 tag="django" location="home" username="admin" as recent_events %} - Put a list of recent events into the template context. A tag title or slug, location title or slug or author's username can also be specified to filter the recent events returned.
  • {% upcoming_events limit=5 tag="django" location="home" username="admin" as upcoming_events %} - Put a list of upcoming events into the template context. A tag title or slug, location title or slug or author's username can also be specified to filter the recent events returned.
  • {% google_static_map event <width> <height> <zoom> %} - Produces a Google static map centred around the event location, zoomed to the specified level. Produces the entire img tag, not just the URL.
  • {% icalendar_url %} - Returns the URL to an iCalendar file containing this event. Upon downloading this file, most calendar software including Outlook and iCal will handle this by adding it to their calendars.
  • {{ event|google_calendar_url }} - Returns a Google Calendar template URL. Google Calendar users can click a link to this URL to add the event to their calendar.
  • {{ event|google_nav_url }} - Returns the URL to a page on Google Maps showing the location .

Settings

  • EVENT_USE_FEATURED_IMAGE - Enable featured images in events. Default: False.
  • EVENT_URLS_DATE_FORMAT - A string containing the value year, month, or day, which controls the granularity of the date portion in the URL for each event. Eg: year will define URLs in the format /events/yyyy/slug/, while day will define URLs with the format /events/yyyy/mm/dd/slug/. An empty string means the URLs will only use the slug, and not contain any portion of the date at all. Default: ''.
  • EVENT_PER_PAGE - Number of events shown on a event listing page. Default: 5.
  • EVENT_RSS_LIMIT - Number of most recent events shown in the RSS feed. Set to None to display all events in the RSS feed. Default: 20.
  • EVENT_SLUG - Enable featured images in events. Default: 'events'.
  • EVENT_GOOGLE_MAPS_DOMAIN - The Google Maps country domain to query for geocoding. Setting this accurately improves results when users forget to enter a country in the mappable address. Default: 'maps.google.com'.
  • EVENT_HIDPI_STATIC_MAPS - Whether the {% google_static_map %} template tag generates a map suitable for high DPI displays such as the MacBook Pro with Retina Display and many newer smartphones. Default: True.
  • EVENT_TIME_ZONE - The time zone that the event dates and times are in. Either this or the TIME_ZONE setting needs to be set.
