Welcome to the documentation for django-klingon!

django-klingon is an attempt to make django model translations suck
but with no integrations pain in your app!

Setup & Integration
------------------------------------

In your settings files:
add django-klingon to INSTALLED_APPS::

INSTALLED_APPS = (
...
'klingon',
...
)

specify a default language if you want to use your fields to store the
default language::

KLINGON_DEFAULT_LANGUAGE = 'en'

Extend you models to add API support:
first add Translatable to your model Class definition. This will add the
API functions::

from klingon.models import Translatable
...
class Book(models.Model, Translatable):
...

in the same model add an attribute to indicate which fields will be
translatables::

...
translatable_fields = ('title', 'description')
...

your model should look like this::

class Book(models.Model, Translatable):
title = models.CharField(max_length=100)
description = models.TextField()
publication_date = models.DateField()

translatable_fields = ('title', 'description')


Add admin capabilities:
______________________

you can include an inline to your model admin and a custom action
to create the translations. To do this in your ModelAdmin class do
this::

from klingon.admin import TranslationInline, create_translations
...
class BookAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
...
inlines = [TranslationInline]
actions = [create_translations]

* see full example in example_project folder of source code of klingon


Using Specific Widgets in the TranslationInline form of the admin:
________________________________________________

You can specify the widget to be use on an inline form by passing a dictionary to TranslationInlineForm.
So, you might want to extend the TranslationInline with a new form that will a "widgets" dictionary,
where you can specify the widget that each filds has to use, for example::

class RichTranslationInlineForm(TranslationInlineForm):
widgets = {
'CharField': forms.TextInput(attrs={'class': 'klingon-char-field'}),
'TextField': forms.Textarea(attrs={'class': 'klingon-text-field'}),
}

class RichTranslationInline(TranslationInline):
form = RichTranslationInlineForm

and then you just simply use the RichTranslationInline class on your AdminModels, for example::

class BookAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
inlines = [RichTranslationInline]

* see full example in example_project folder of source code of klingon

Using the API
------------------------------------

To create the translation you can do the follwing:

Suppose that you have and object called book::

> book = Book.objects.create(
title="The Raven",
description="The Raven is a narrative poem",
publication_date=datetime.date(1845, 1, 1)
)

you can create translation for that instances like this::

> book.set_translation('es', 'title', 'El Cuervo')
> book.set_translation('es', 'description', 'El Cuervo es un poema narrativo')

a translation could be access individually::

> self.book.get_translation('es', 'title')
'El Cuervo'
> book.get_translation('es', 'description')
'El Cuervo es un poema narrativo'

or you can get all translations together::

> self.book.translations('es')
{
'title': self.es_title,
'description': self.es_description,
}

Installation:
------------------------------------

pip install django-klingon


Running the Tests
------------------------------------

You can run the tests with via::

python setup.py test

or::

python runtests.py
