Django Copywriting

Copywriting is the act of writing copy (text) for the purpose of advertising or marketing a product, business, person,

for, or subscribe to the viewpoint the text shares.

To get the latest stable release from PyPi

.. code-block:: bash

pip install django-copywriting (not pushed yet! use latest commit from GitHub)

To get the latest commit from GitHub

.. code-block:: bash

pip install -e git+git://

TODO: Describe further installation steps (edit / remove the examples below):

Add ``copywriting`` to your ``INSTALLED_APPS``

.. code-block:: python


Add the ``copywriting`` URLs to your ````

.. code-block:: python

urlpatterns = patterns('',
url(r'^blog/', include('copywriting.urls')),

Before your tags/filters are available in your templates, load them by using

.. code-block:: html

{% load blogtags %}

Don't forget to migrate your database

.. code-block:: bash

./ migrate copywriting



Add the following lines to your ````

.. code-block:: python

from copywriting.sitemaps import BlogSitemap
sitemaps = {
'blog': BlogSitemap,

# in patterns...

url(r'^sitemap\.xml$', 'django.contrib.sitemaps.views.sitemap', {'sitemaps': sitemaps}),

Make sure that ``'django.contrib.sitemaps'`` is in your ``INSTALLED_APPS``.


To use comments add a shortname and a context_processor to your settings:

.. code-block:: python


# ...
# ...

The comments will render where the div with the id="disqus_thread" is located:

.. code-block:: html

<div id="disqus_thread"></div>

The comments are controlled with the comments_enabled boolean in the article entity.


You can catch a signal when a article changes to "ready to review" or "ready to publish". Here is an example:

.. code-block:: python

from django.dispatch import receiver
from copywriting.signals import ready_to_review
from copywriting.signals import ready_to_publish

def notify_publisher(sender, **kwargs):
print "New article with ID=%s" % kwargs['articleID']


- Describe usage or point to docs. Also describe available settings and templatetags.
- Add dependencies
- Better Installation Guide

Set the FEED_SETTINGS in your projects file, here is an example:

.. code-block:: python

'title': "My awesome Blog",
'link': "/blog/",
'description': "Don't miss any of my new posts",
'author_email': "",
'author_name': "Scrooge McDuck",
'author_link': "",
'feed_url': "",
'categories': [
'Daisy Duck',

Known issues, TODOs and planned features

* ImageBucketObject is missing! Issue #5
* ImageCropping dependencies
* Translation added for ``desc`` so manual migrations of the DB are required. Add the new rows and rename ``desc`` to your primary language. This would be ``desc_de`` in case you start with German.
