Send alerts, notifications, and messages based on events in your django application

Project Description
[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/jiaaro/django-alert.png?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/jiaaro/django-alert)

## Installation ##

1. Install lib with pip:

`pip install django-alert`

**- OR -**

Put the "alert" directory somewhere in your python path

2. Add "alert" to your installed apps (in the settings.py file)
3. Also add "django.contrib.sites" in installed apps in case it's not there.
4. Run ./manage.py migrate


## Making Alerts ##

Create an "alerts.py" file and import it at the bottom of your
models.py file. This is where you will define your alert class. Every
alert is subclassed from "alert.utils.BaseAlert"

Here is an example alert that is sent to users when they first sign up:

from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from django.db.models.signals import post_save
from alert.utils import BaseAlert

class WelcomeAlert(BaseAlert):
title = 'Welcome new users'
description = 'When a new user signs up, send them a welcome email'

signal = post_save
sender = User

default = False

def before(self, created, **kwargs):
return created

def get_applicable_users(self, instance, **kwargs):
return [instance]


## Writing Alert Backends ##

Alert includes an Email Backend by default. But you can write a backend
for *any* messaging medium!

Alert Backends just need to subclass BaseAlertBackend and implement a
`send()` method that accepts an alert instance

You can copy and paste the following code to get started:

from alert.utils import BaseAlertBackend

class MyAlertBackend(BaseAlertBackend):
def send()


## Signals ##

When an alert is sent, a signal is fired (found in alert.signals). The
"sender" keyword argument is the Alert you defined (WelcomeAlert in
this case).

example:

from alert.signals import alert_sent

def do_something_after_welcome_alert_is_sent(sender, alert, **kwargs):
pass

alert_sent.connect(do_something_after_welcome_alert_is_sent,
sender=WelcomeAlert)
