```python
<p>Favorite Count {{ obj|favorites_count }}</p>
```


* Get Favorite instance for an object (obj) and a user (user)

```python
{% with obj|get_favorite_for:user as fav_object %}
...
{% endwith %}
```

* Favorite Button for an object `my_obj`:

```python
{% favorite_button my_obj %}
```


### Favorites Manager

* Create a Favorite instance for a user and object:

```python
>>> from django.contrib.auth.models import User
>>> from music.models import Song
>>> user = User.objects.get(username='jdoe')
>>> song = Song.objects.get(pk=1)
>>> fav = Favorite.objects.create(user, song)
```

or:

```python
>>> fav = Favorite.objects.create(user, 1, Song)
```

or:

```python
>>> fav = Favorite.objects.create(user, 1, "music.Song")
```

* Get the objects favorited by a given user:

```python
>>> from django.contrib.auth.models import User
>>> user = User.objects.get(username='jdoe')
>>> Favorite.objects.for_user(user)
>>> [<Favorite: Favorite object 1>, <Favorite: Favorite object 2>, <Favorite: Favorite object 3>]
```

* Now, get user favorited objects belonging to a given model:

```python
>>> from django.contrib.auth.models import User
>>> from music.models import Song
>>> user = User.objects.get(username='jdoe')
>>> Favorite.objects.for_user(user, model=Song)
>>> [<Favorite: Favorite object 1>, <Favorite: Favorite object 2>, <Favorite: Favorite object 3>]
```

```python
>>> from music.models import Song
>>> Favorite.objects.for_model(Song)
>>> [<Favorite: Favorite object 1>, <Favorite: Favorite object 2>, <Favorite: Favorite object 3>]
```

* Get a Favorite instance for a given object and user:

```python
>>> from django.contrib.auth.models import User
>>> from music.models import Song
>>> user = User.objects.get(username='jdoe')
>>> song = Song.objects.get(pk=1)
>>> fav = Favorite.objects.get_favorite(user, song)
```
