django-tagging-ext (Django Tagging EXT)

django-tagging gives you tagging. django-tagging-ext gives you enhanced displays of tags. All rendered HTML is done via templates so you can customize the displays as needed.

Future releases of Django Tagging EXT will include these features:

  • More comprehensive tests
  • Tag dispatching so you can control tagging more tightly. For example, limiting tags to just one model.
  • Tag Auto-complete

Dependencies

View rendering via root url_conf

django-tagging-ext is designed so all the work is done in the root urls file.

In the project url_conf (urls.py):

# django-tagging-ext url definitions
from blog.models import Post
from bookmarks.models import BookmarkInstance
from photos.models import Image
from tagging.models import TaggedItem

tagged_models = (
  dict(title="Blog Posts",
    query=lambda tag : TaggedItem.objects.get_by_model(Post, tag).filter(status=2),
  ),
  dict(title="Bookmarks",
    query=lambda tag : TaggedItem.objects.get_by_model(BookmarkInstance, tag),
  ),
  dict(title="Photos",
    query=lambda tag: TaggedItem.objects.get_by_model(Image, tag).filter(safetylevel=1),
  ),
)

tagging_ext_kwargs = {
  'tagged_models':tagged_models,
  # You can add your own special template to be the default
  #'default_template':'custom_templates/special.html'
}

urlpatterns += patterns('',
  url(r'^tags/(?P<tag>.+)/(?P<model>.+)$', 'tagging_ext.views.tag_by_model',
        kwargs=tagging_ext_kwargs, name='tagging_ext_tag_by_model'),
  url(r'^tags/(?P<tag>.+)/$', 'tagging_ext.views.tag',
        kwargs=tagging_ext_kwargs, name='tagging_ext_tag'),
  url(r'^tags/$', 'tagging_ext.views.index', name='tagging_ext_index'),
)

View rendering of Pinax objects via root url_conf

In the pinax project url_conf (urls.py) we use the custom_template field to explicitly tell Django Tagging EXT to fetch views customized for use in Pinax:

# django-tagging-ext url definitions
from blog.models import Post
from bookmarks.models import BookmarkInstance
from photos.models import Image
from tagging.models import TaggedItem

tagged_models = (
  dict(title="Blog Posts",
    query=lambda tag : TaggedItem.objects.get_by_model(Post, tag).filter(status=2),
    content_template="pinax_tagging_ext/blogs.html",
  ),
  dict(title="Bookmarks",
    query=lambda tag : TaggedItem.objects.get_by_model(BookmarkInstance, tag),
    content_template="pinax_tagging_ext/bookmarks.html",
  ),
  dict(title="Photos",
    query=lambda tag: TaggedItem.objects.get_by_model(Image, tag).filter(safetylevel=1),
    content_template="pinax_tagging_ext/photos.html",
  ),
)

tagging_ext_kwargs = {
  'tagged_models':tagged_models,
  # You can add your own special template to be the default
  #'default_template':'custom_templates/special.html'
}

urlpatterns += patterns('',
  url(r'^tags/(?P<tag>.+)/(?P<model>.+)$', 'tagging_ext.views.tag_by_model',
        kwargs=tagging_ext_kwargs, name='tagging_ext_tag_by_model'),
  url(r'^tags/(?P<tag>.+)/$', 'tagging_ext.views.tag',
        kwargs=tagging_ext_kwargs, name='tagging_ext_tag'),
  url(r'^tags/$', 'tagging_ext.views.index', name='tagging_ext_index'),
)
