Project description

Django Download Stats
=====================

A reusable Django app to keep track of file download statistics.

Installation
------------

To get the latest stable release from PyPi::

$ pip install django-download-stats

To get the latest commit from GitHub::

$ pip install -e git://github.com/bitmazk/django-download-stats.git#egg=download_stats


Add ``download_stats`` to your ``INSTALLED_APPS``::

INSTALLED_APPS = (
...,
'download_stats',
)

Define ``DOWNLOAD_URL`` in your settings if you want to override the default
of ``/downloads/``::

DOWNLOAD_URL = "/my-download/"


Add the ``download_stats`` URLs to your ``urls.py``::

urlpatterns = patterns('',
...
url(r'^myurlname/', include('download_stats.urls')),
)

An important note is, that the ``download_stats.urls`` will automatically
prepend the ``DOWNLOAD_URL`` setting. So the following urls example would
result in urls formatted like ``example.com/downloads/filename.jpg``
considering if you would leave the ``DOWNLOAD_URL`` on its default value
``/downloads/``.

urlpatterns = patterns('',
...
url(r'^', include('download_stats.urls')),
)

Why this setting anyway then?
Because now you will add the context processor::

TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = [
...
'download_stats.context_processors.download_url',
]

This will add the ``DOWNLOAD_URL`` variable to all templates.

Don't forget to migrate your database::

./manage.py migrate download_stats


Usage
-----

With our context processor adding ``DOWNLOAD_URL`` you can basically use the
view that comes with download stats just like you would do it before, just
replacing ``MEDIA_URL`` with ``DOWNLOAD_URL``::

<a href="{{ DOWNLOAD_URL }}files/myfile.pdf">Click to download my file</a>

It will then automatically count how often ``files/myfile.pdf`` was clicked.

You can then view the individual file counts in the download stats admin.
