What is coop_bar good for?
django-coop is a set of several apps for building cooperative websites. It is based on Django.

Thses apps may need a to display an admin toolbar. For example, the CMS component may use this bar
to display edit, cancel and save links.

coop_bar tries to provide a simple and configurable mechanism

.. _quick-start:

Quick start
In, add 'coop_bar' (with an underscore) to the INSTALLED_APPS
Under Django 1.3, the static folder should be found automatically, as the templates folder
In add (r'^coop_bar/', include('coop_bar.urls')) to your urlpatterns

For each app needing to add links to coop_bar, create a file
In this file, add a load_commands function as follows ::

from django.core.urlresolvers import reverse
from django.utils.translation import ugettext as _

def django_admin_command(request, context):
if request and request.user.is_staff: #request might be None
return u'<a href="{0}">{1}</a>'.format(reverse("admin:index"), _('Admin'))

def load_commands(coop_bar):

In load_commands, you can register as much callback functions as you want. A callback (django_admin_command in the previous example)
is just a function with request and context as args. It returns some html code to display in the bar or None.

In your base.html, add the following template tags::

{% load coop_bar_tags %}
{% coop_bar_headers %}
{% coop_bar %}
your page
{% coop_bar_footer %}

Humanized Messages

Coop-bar takes also care of providing a nice display of django session messages.
It's based on the `Humanized Message idea <>`_ , which displays a big fat sentence in the middle of the screen and fades away as soon as you move your mouse, or five seconds later.
You can add a Message log at the bottom of the web page by adding this to your django settings file::
