Menu helpers for django projects

Project description

django-menus is an app that provides some useful template helpers for rendering and handling menus within django projects.

To use in in your django project, it needs to be installed:

$ pip install django-menus

And "menus" needs to be in your settings.INSTALLED_APPS.

tree_menu

An extension to django-mptt, this is a template that you can use to have a dynamic tree menu, where selecting items with children expands them, and selecting a leaf node follows the link. To use it, you’ll need to have mptt installed into your project as well as this package.

You use it like:

{% load mptt_tags %}

{% block tree_menu %}
  {% full_tree_for_model app_label.ModelName as menu %}
  {% include "menu/tree-menu.html" %}
{% endblock %}

If you want it to dynamically hide/show nested data, then you will want to have:

<script src="{{ STATIC_URL }}menus/js/tree-menu.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ STATIC_URL }}menus/style/tree-menu.css"
      type="text/css" media="screen" title="no title" charset="utf-8">

Somewhere in your page.

This part is currently in use in one small part of a project, and may change if I start to use it more. This README is a little light on because I haven’t touched this code in a long, long time.

Changes

1.1.2 - Create li_menu_item_disabled template tag, that will show the menu
item, but have it as disabled if the user may not access it.

1.1.1 - Pass through args and kwargs to the test function if it accepts them.

1.0.9 - Allow for adding classes, and buttons as menu items.

1.0.8 - Allow for absolute urls, ie, pointing to another server. We never try to validate these for permission to view, it is assumed the user can.

1.0.7 - Change how version number is stored. Include a new li-item.html template, and refactor how the template is found. Check func_code exists before accessing it. Refactor some of the handling of paths. Better handle quoting issues.

1.0.6 - Documentation fix only.

1.0.5 - Actually install all of the static media/templates.

1.0.4 - Don’t fail on install if README.md missing.

1.0.3 - Repackaged to include README.rst [Thanks to John Bazik jsb@cs.brown.edu]
