A Django reusable app providing the ability for admin users to create their own forms.
A Django reusable app providing the ability for admin users to create their own forms within the admin interface drawing from a range of field widgets such as regular text fields, drop-down lists and file uploads. Options are also provided for controlling who gets sent email notifications when a form is submitted. All form entries are made available in the admin via CSV export.
Assuming you have setuptools installed, the easiest method is to install directly from pypi by running the following command:
$ easy_install -U mezzanine
Otherwise you can check out the source directly and install it via:
$ python setup.py install
Once installed you can then add forms_builder.forms to your INSTALLED_APPS and forms_builder.forms.urls to your url conf.
It’s possible for admin users to create forms that allow file uploads which can be accessed via a download URL for each file that is provided in the CSV export. By default these uploaded files are stored in an obscured location under your project’s MEDIA_ROOT directory but ideally the should be stored somewhere inaccessible to the public. To set the location where files are stored to be somewhere outside of your project’s MEDIA_ROOT directory you just need to define the FORMS_BUILDER_UPLOAD_ROOT setting in your project’s settings module. Its value should be an absolute path on the web server that isn’t accessible to the public.
