django-treenav

An extensible, hierarchical, and pluggable navigation system for Django sites.

django-treenav was designed from the start to live independent of a CMS implementation. As a separate application, treenav can easily be integrated into existing, custom setups and does not enforce or require users to use a particular content management system.

Sharing the same principals, django-pagelets integrates seamlessly with treenav and can be used together to create a flexible CMS product.

Features

  • Generic functionality with multiple URL specifications: get_absolute_url(), reverse(), or raw URLs
  • Packaged with templates to render the tree hierarchy with nested <ul>'s, but can easily be overridden with custom templates
  • Useful CSS classes for flexible UI customization
  • Automatically sets "active" on item and item's parents if PATH_INFO is equal to item.href
  • Efficient: minimizes database access with django-mptt functionality
  • Caches the tree so that repeated page views to not hit the database.
  • Simple links in the MenuItem list view for refreshing the cache and href from the database.

Requirements

  • django

  • django-mptt

    Version 4.2 and lower contains a bug that causes children menu items to become out of order when saved as a formset in Django's admin interface.

    This issue has been resolved in the latest development version of django-mptt, which can be installed with:

    pip install -e git+https://github.com/django-mptt/django-mptt.git#egg=django-mptt
    

Installation

  1. Install the app with pip:

    pip install django-treenav
    
  2. Add to your INSTALLED_APPS and run syncdb:

    INSTALLED_APPS = (
        ...,
        'mptt',
        'treenav',
    )
    
  3. Include these context processors:

    TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = (
        "django.core.context_processors.request",
        "treenav.context_processors.treenav_active",
    )
    
  4. Add these urls:

    urlpatterns = patterns('',
        (r'^treenav/', include('treenav.urls.admin')),
        (r'^treenav-missing/', include('treenav.urls.undefined_url')),
    )
