Django app allowing for configurable targetting of template inclusion tags.

Project description

Django Gizmo
============
**Django app allowing for configurable targetting of template inclusion tags.**

Installation
------------

#. Add **gizmo** to your **INSTALLED APPS** setting.

#. Add ROOT_GIZMOCONF value to your projects settings file::

ROOT_GIZMOCONF = 'project.gizmos'

#. Create your gizmos config file in the form::

gizmos = (
('<loader name>', '<tag name>', '<slot name>', [['<url_name'>, ]]),
)

With:

* <loader name> being the name you would normally pass to Django's load tag, i.e. **myapp_inclusion_tags** for **{% load myapp_icnlusion_tags %}**.
* <tag name> being the name of the tag you want to include, i.e. **advert** for **{% advert %}**
* <slot name> being the name of the slot you want the tag to show up in, i.e. **home**.
* <url_name> *optional* being the names of the urls you want the tag to show up in, i.e. **home**.

Usage
-----

Gizmos are stock standard Django inclusion tags. The only diffirence is that instead of specifying tags within a template you specify tags from a distance by using a gizmo conf file in conjunction with the gizmos tag.

For example, lets say we have an **advert** tag specified in **myapp**'s inclusion tags which we only want to call in gizmo slots named **advert** for the url named **home**:

#. Create your tags as normal.

#. Create your gizmos config file in the form::
gizmos = (
('myapp_inclusion_tag', 'advert', 'advert', ['home', ]),
)

#. In your template for the home view load the gizmo inclusion tags and include a gizmos tag with a slot name of advert::

{% load gizmo_inclusion_tags %}

...some html...

{% gizmos 'home_advert' %}

...some more html...
