django-beta is a reusable Django application for handling pre-beta signups.
django-beta is a simple application to help you capture pre-beta interest with your sites.
By default django-beta only captures a user’s email address, however you can alternately set one of these two configuration options:
BETA_CAPTURE_FIRST = True, will use a form and require the user to enter their first name and email address.
BETA_CAPTURE_BOTH = True, will use a form and require the user enter their first name, last name, and email address.
Add beta to your INSTALLED_APPS and run syncdb.
Add the following to your urls.py:
Using the example templates provided in the code, create your customized beta signup templates.
The BetaSignup model has the following manager method to help out:
BetaSignup.objects.contacted() BetaSignup.objects.not_contacted() BetaSignup.objects.registered() BetaSignup.objects.not_registered()
django-beta listens for a signal on User creation and marks the corresponding BetaSignup entry as ‘registered’.
- Admin views to show beta registrations over time
- Management commands to simplify emailing the interested users
