A Django Application for creating jQTouch websites

Project description


jQTouch is a jQuery based library for touch/mobile web applications. django-jqtouch builds on jQTouch to provide easier content management with Django. django-jqtouch adds a model for creating individually displayed screens or panels. When rendering, the contents of the panel is inspected and other referenced panels are rendered as well in order to combine the content and provide a more seamless experience.


The Panel model consists of a unique identifier, the body of the panel, and a flag for whether the panel can be embedded or should be loaded with an XMLHttpRequest when requested by the user.

Recursive Rendering

When rendering, the body of the panel is searched for anchor tags. Each anchor destination is checked to see if it is a local URL. If it is a local URL, the configurable list of panel resolvers is checked in order to see if it resolves to a panel. If the panel can be embedded, the render method on the panel is called and the results are included as a sibling in the output of the current panel.


  1. Install the django-jqtouch package in your preferred method: easy_install, install, pip or buildout.

  2. Add jqtouch to the list of INSTALLED_APPS in your settings file

  3. Include jqtouch.urls in your project’s url patterns:

    urlpatterns = patterns('',
        (r'', include('jqtouch.urls')),

Additional Settings

Default default. This is the identifier to use with the default URL when using the jqtouch.urls include. Requesting ‘/’ will load this panel identifier.
Default ('jqtouch.resolvers.panel_model_resolver',). A list or tuple of panel resolving functions in the order they should be tried. Strings can be used to specify the resolving function or the actual functions can be entered.
