A django app for registering dynamic global, site and user preferences

Project description

Warning: This project should not be considered as stable at the moment.

# What is dynamic-preferences ?

Dynamic-preferences is a Django app designed to manage your project settings. While most of the time, a settings.py file is sufficient, there are some situations where you need something more flexible, such as per-user settings and per-site settings.

For per-user settings, you could actually store them in UserProfile. However, it means that every time you want to add a new setting, you need to add a new column to the UserProfile DB table. Not very efficient.

Dynamic-preferences allow you to register settings (a.k.a. preferences) in a declarative way, for users, sites and your whole project. Preferences values are serialized before storage in database, and automatically deserialized when you want to access them.

With dynamic-preferences, you can update settings on the fly, through django’s admin or custom forms, without restarting your application.
