Django Vestlus

vestlus is a django chat app with support for private and public channels.

PyPI - License PyPI - Version PyPI - Python Version PyPI - Downloads Github - Issues

Dependencies

Use of vestlus requires:

  • django-polymorphic: used to handle inheritance between message models.
  • django-crispy-forms: used for better formatting of forms in templates.
  • django-restframework: used to provide REST api support.
  • django-haystack: used to handle searching across channels and messages.

Those apps will need to be installed in the INSTALLED_APPS tuple of your django project.

Models

The app is split into three main models:

  • channel: channels allow for group conversations. Any message sent to a channel is visible to every member of the channel. Channels can be either public or private.
  • membership: memberships allow users to join, leave, and administer channels. Owners and admins can manage channel memberships.
  • message: all messages are private (self to self); private (shared with somebody else); or

    INSTALLED_APPS = [
