A django app that lets you chat with visitors to your site.

Project Description

A live support chat app for django that lets you chat with visitors to your
site through the Django Admin interface.


- django (tested with 1.3)
- simplejson (required if using python 2.5, suggested otherwise)

pip install django-live-support

Add ``live_support`` to your installed apps and ``syncdb`` (or migrate, if
you have south installed).

Your installed apps should look something like this:

Add ``live_support.urls`` to your, like so:
from django.conf.urls.defaults import patterns, include, url

from django.contrib import admin

urlpatterns = patterns('',
url(r'^admin/', include(,
url(r'^support/', include('live_support.urls')),

If you are going to use the chat_iframe templatetag, be sure that you have
'django.core.context_processors.request' in your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS.


You can either override the template for the ``start_chat``
(live_support/start_chat.html) and ``client_chat``
(live_support/live_support.html) views and just point users to the root
of the live_support app as defined in your file, or you can drop
the ``{% chat_iframe %}`` templatetag into your base template, but be sure
to include {% load live_support_tags %} at the top of your template, which
will render the chat sidebar (which pops out into a chat window) on every
