Generate recommendations in Django.

Project description

Use pyrecommend in Django projects.


not yet suitable for production.

django_recommend/ is the actual Django app intended for use in projects.

simplerec/ is a Django project used for testing.


  • Add django_recommend to your INSTALLED_APPS, and run python migrate.

  • In your views, call django_recommend.set(user, object, score) to start recording user scores. (Currently this is assumed to be implicit feedback).

  • In your templates, use {% load django_recommend %} and {{ obj|similar_objects }} to show similar objects to visitors. This filter returns a list, so you may also do, for example:

    {% with similar_products as product|similar_objects %}
        {% if similiar_products %}
            <h2>Other users also liked:</h2>
            {% for product in similar_products %}
                <li><a href="{{ product.get_absolute_url }}">{{ product }}</a></li>
            {% endfor %}
        {% endif %}
    {% endwith %}
