A minimalist Django menu app.

Project description

django-alacarte is a minimalist menu app for Django.

Installation

$ pip install django-alacarte

Usage

Add “alacarte” to your INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...,
    'alacarte',
)

In your root urls.py add the following code:

# ...

import alacarte
alacarte.autodiscover()

# Your url patterns

Note: You don’t need this if you use Django >= 1.7, autodiscovery is made automatically with AppConfig.

Create a file called menu.py inside the app of your choice and register its corresponding menus:

import alacarte


class BankTransactionsMenu(alacarte.Menu):
    label = 'Transactions'
    url_name = 'bank_transactions'


class BankBalanceMenu(alacarte.Menu):
    label = 'Balance'
    url_name = 'bank_balance'


class BankPremiumMenu(alacarte.Menu):
    label = 'Premium Offers'
    url_name = 'bank_premium_offers'

    def shown(self)
        user = self.context['user']
        return user.is_premium()


class BankMenu(alacarte.Menu):
    group = 'main'
    label = 'Bank'
    submenus = (
        BankTransactionsMenu(),
        BankBalanceMenu(),
        BankPremiumMenu(),
    )

    def shown(self):
        user = self.context['user']
        return user.is_authenticated()


alacarte.register(BankMenu)

Then in your template:

{% load alacarte %}
{# ... #}
    {# ... #}
    {% alacarte "main" %}
    {# ... #}
{# ... #}
