A Django reusable app providing the ability for admin users to create their own forms.

Project description


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 django-forms-builder

Otherwise you can check out the source directly and install it via::

$ python install

Once installed you can then add ``forms_builder.forms`` to your
``INSTALLED_APPS`` and ``forms_builder.forms.urls`` to your url conf.

File Uploads

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.


The following settings can be defined in your project's ``settings`` module.

* ``FORMS_BUILDER_FIELD_MAX_LENGTH`` - Maximum allowed length for field values. Defaults to ``2000``
* ``FORMS_BUILDER_LABEL_MAX_LENGTH`` - Maximum allowed length for field labels. Defaults to ``20``
* ``FORMS_BUILDER_UPLOAD_ROOT`` - The absolute path where files will be uploaded to. Defaults to ``None``
* ``FORMS_BUILDER_USE_SITES`` - Boolean controlling whether forms are associated to Django's Sites framework. Defaults to ``"django.contrib.sites" in settings.INSTALLED_APPS``
* ``FORMS_BUILDER_CHOICES_QUOTE`` - Char to start a quoted choice with. Defaults to `.
* ``FORMS_BUILDER_CHOICES_UNQUOTE`` - Char to end a quoted choice with. Defaults to `.
