A simple Django app to attach Dublin Core metadata to arbitrary Django objects

Project description

A Django plugin app for applying Dublin Core Metadata to any Django model.

This uses the Django contenttype framework and generic relations to apply a varying number of metadata terms to any Django model.

[Dublin Core Metadata Terms]

Quick start

  1. git clone https://github.com/mredar/django-dublincore.git

  2. cd django-dublincore

  3. python setup.py install

  4. Add “dublincore” to your INSTALLED_APPS setting:

    INSTALLED_APPS = (
            ...
           'dublincore',
    )
    
  5. Run python manage.py syncdb to create the dublincore db tables.

  6. Start the development server and visit http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin/ to attach some Dublin Core metadata to your objects. (admin app must be installed)

  7. Add this to models you wish to add dublincore attributes to:

    from django.contrib.contenttypes import generic
    from dublincore.models import QualifiedDublinCoreElement
    ...
    
    class Thing(models.Model):
        '''Some Thing
        with dublincore metadata attached
        '''
        QDCElements = generic.GenericRelation(QualifiedDublinCoreElement)
    

TODO:

  1. Make tests work from clean install
  2. improve install process (one cmd)
  3. performance analysis - i’ve read that abstract classes containing datbase fields have a bad performance hit.
  4. sample views and usage
  5. Better Documentation
  6. support dublin core terms (currently just element with “qualifier”)
