Ads Management System for Django Framework

Project description

a Django Application to make it easy to add Simple (Image) Advertisements to your project.

Each Ad has a title, a URL to redirect to, an image to be displayed in the template as a link, a start & end dates, and a weight relative to other Ads in the same zone. The higher the weight, the more frequently the Ad will be displayed.

Each time an Ad is displayed an Impression will be saved to the database about it with session id and source ip address, and each time it will be clicked a click will be saved in the database about it with the same info.

Installation:

Install the package using pip:

pip install django-ads

Run django Migration to add tables to your database:

python manage.py migrate ads

Configuration:

Add 'ads' to your INSTALLED_APPS

Make sure django.template.context_processors.request is included in context_processors

TEMPLATES = [
    {
        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'DIRS': [],
        'APP_DIRS': True,
        'OPTIONS': {
            'context_processors': [
                ...
                'django.template.context_processors.request',
                ...
            ],
        },
    },
]

Make sure django.contrib.sessions.middleware.SessionMiddleware is included to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES/MIDDLEWARE

Prior to Django 1.10

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = [
    ...
    'django.contrib.sessions.middleware.SessionMiddleware',
    ...
]

Django 1.10 (new style)

MIDDLEWARE = [
    ...
    'django.contrib.sessions.middleware.SessionMiddleware',
    ...
]

Add the following to your settings file:

ADS_GOOGLE_ADSENSE_CLIENT = 'ca-pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'  # OPTIONAL - DEFAULT TO None

ADS_ZONES = {
    'header': {
        'name': _('Header'),
        'ad_size': {
            'xs': '720x150',
            'sm': '800x90',
            'md': '800x90',
            'lg': '800x90'
        },
        'google_adsense_slot': 'xxxxxxxxx',  # OPTIONAL - DEFAULT TO None
        'google_adsense_format': 'auto',  # OPTIONAL - DEFAULT TO None
    },
    'content': {
        'name': _('Content'),
        'ad_size': {
            'xs': '720x150',
            'sm': '800x90',
            'md': '800x90',
            'lg': '800x90'
        },
        'google_adsense_slot': 'xxxxxxxxx',  # OPTIONAL - DEFAULT TO None
        'google_adsense_format': 'auto',  # OPTIONAL - DEFAULT TO None
    },
    'sidebar': {
        'name': _('Sidebar'),
        'ad_size': {
            'xs': '720x150',
            'sm': '800x90',
            'md': '800x90',
            'lg': '800x90'
        },
        'google_adsense_slot': 'xxxxxxxxx',  # OPTIONAL - DEFAULT TO None
        'google_adsense_format': 'auto',  # OPTIONAL - DEFAULT TO None
    },
}

Where each element in ADS_ZONES defines a zone that can be used in your templates to display ads. Each zone must have a name to be used in the admin interface when adding ads, and sizes to be used to display the ad images in templates.

This app has one template: ads/tags/render_ads_zone.html. It makes some assumptions:

  1. Your project uses Bootstrap (the visible-* and img-responsive CSS classes are used).
  2. If you are using Google AdSense‎, it is assumed that you have 'sekizai' in your INSTALLED_APPS and that your base template contains {% render_block "js" %}.

If either of the above assumptions will cause a problem in your project, feel free to override the template.

Create a URL pattern in your urls.py:

from django.conf.urls import include, url

urlpatterns = [
    ...
    url(r'^ads/', include('ads.urls')),
    ...
]

Usage:

Add Advertisers, Categories, and Ads using Django admin interface.

load ads_tags in your template:

{% load ads_tags %}

use render_ads_zone in your template where you want your ads to appear:

{% render_ads_zone 'zone_name' %}
