Project description

Simple category app providing category and tag models.

Travis

Installation

  1. Install or add django-category to your Python path.
  2. Add category to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.
  3. Optional: django-object-tools provides a category tree view. See https://github.com/praekelt/django-object-tools for installation instructions.

Usage

Enable categorization and/or tagging on a model by creating ManyToMany fields to the models provided by django-category, for example:

from django import models

class MyModel(models.Model):
    categories = models.ManyToManyField(
        'category.Category',
        help_text='Categorize this item.'
    )
    tags = models.ManyToManyField(
        'category.Tag',
        help_text='Tag this item.'
    )

Models

class Category

Category model to be used for categorization of content. Categories are high level constructs to be used for grouping and organizing content, thus creating a site’s table of contents.

Category.title

Short descriptive title for the category to be used for display.

Category.subtitle

Some titles may be the same and cause confusion in admin UI. A subtitle makes a distinction.

Category.slug

Short descriptive unique name to be used in urls.

Category.parent

Optional parent to allow nesting of categories.

Category.sites

Limits category scope to selected sites.

class Tag

Tag model to be used for tagging content. Tags are to be used to describe your content in more detail, in essence providing keywords associated with your content. Tags can also be seen as micro-categorization of a site’s content.

Tag.title

Short descriptive name for the tag to be used for display.

Tag.slug

Short descriptive unique name to be used in urls.

Tag.categories

Categories to which the tag belongs.
