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

  2. cd django-dublincore

  3. python install

  4. Add “dublincore” to your INSTALLED_APPS setting:

  5. Run python syncdb to create the dublincore db tables.

  6. Start the development server and visit 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)


  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”)
