What is dojango

Dojango is a reusable django application that helps you to use the client-side framework dojo within your django project:

  • It provides capabilites to easily switch between several dojo versions and sources (e.g. aol, google, local)
  • Delivers helping utilities, that makes the development of rich internet applications in combination with dojo more comfortable.
  • It makes the building of your own packed dojo release easier.

Another goal of this project is, that you can learn how you have to structure your html to use dojo within your projects.

Dojango 0.5.1 (requires Django >= 1.2.3): Using Dojo 1.5.0 and Claro theme as default, minor bugfixes

Dojango 0.4.7: Using Dojo 1.4.3 as default, upgraded form widgets to Dojo 1.4, added TreeStore, fixed several bugs

Dojango 0.4.6: Dojo/Django !ModelStore (Thanks to Ben Wilber, Documentation: http://sites.google.com/site/djangomodelstore/), easy dojo media file handling (dojo-media) and several bug fixes. Also available within PyPI ("easy_install dojango").

Dojango 0.4: the FormIntegration just works with Django >= 1.0.2

Dojango 0.3.1 is compatible with Django >= 0.96. This is because dojango is now able to run on Google AppEngine and that platform uses Django 0.96. *UPDATE: Not needed anymore, because !AppEngine now supports Django 1.0*

Dojango 0.3.0 is just running with Django versions >= 1.0.
