django.contrib.messages wrapper allowing pre-rendering of message dictionaries

Project description

A small Django package allowing a dictionary to be passed to contrib.messages. The dictionary is then pre-rendered and passed to the real contrib.message function.

Dependencies

A recent version of Django is required, but there are no third-party dependencies for this package.

Installation

Use your favorite Python installer to install it from PyPI:

$ pip install django-dictmessages

Or get the source from the application site:

$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/mhurt/django-dictmessages
$ cd django-dictmessages
$ python setup.py install

Configuration

Add 'dictmessages' to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this:

INSTALLED_APPS = {
  ...
  'dictmessages',
}

Getting Started

Wherever you would normally make use of the django.contrib.messages API you can use this package instead:

# Before...
from django.contrib import messages

# After...
from dictmessages import messages

Since dictmessages is a simply a wrapper around the original functionality, you can continue to use it in the same way:

from dictmessages import messages
...
...

# This still works the same...
messages.success(request, 'Awesome! You totally nailed that, dude.')

But, if you’d like to something a little more fancy…:

from dictmessages import messages
...
...

message_dictionary = dict(
    object='Awesome!', activity='You totally nailed that, dude.')

messages.success(requestion, message_dictionary)
