Project description


Facebook-like mentions for Django

Add aplication to INSTALLED_APPS in ****:


Add app urls to your ****:

urlpatterns = patterns('',
url(r'^mentions/', include('mentions.urls')),

Implement a mention provider:

from mentions.providers import Provider

class UserProvider(Provider):
model = User

def get_title(self, obj):
return obj.username

def search(self, request, term):
return self.get_queryset().filter(username__istartswith=term)

# You can put your provider anywhere you want
'default': [

Use `mentions.forms.MentionTextarea` widget instead of the default one:
from mentions.forms import MentionTextarea

class PostForm(forms.ModelForm):
class Meta:
model = Post
widgets = {
'text': MentionTextarea

To urlize mentions in your templates, use `urlize_mentions` filter:
{{ post.text|urlize_mentions }}
