Providing alternate form wizards for the Django project.

Project Description

Django Merlin

What’s this for

The Django FormWizard was not exactly what we were looking for so we decided to scratch our own itch and create a project that would host different types of form wizards for use with Django. Currently we have a SessionWizard, which is a form wizard that is backed by the Django session object. This wizard provides the ability to use the SessionWizard as a callable in the URLConf but still provide thread safety.

Besides the storage of SessionWizard state being in session, it uses an HTTP GET to render a form and a POST to process a form. This differs from the Django FormWizard which uses POST for everything. One benefit of this is the ability to got to previous steps in the wizard.

Documentation and examples can be found at: http://packages.python.org/django-merlin/
