Depedencies

Installing django-simple-feedback
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Install into your python path using pip or github version::

pip install django-simple-feedback
pip install -e git://github.com/Narsil/django-simple-feedback

Add *'feedback'* to your INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py, also make sure *'django.core.context_processors.request'* is in your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS::

INSTALLED_APPS = (
...
'feedback',
)
....
TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = (
'django.core.context_processors.request'
)

Add css and javascript in your *'base.html'* template (jQuery is optional if you already include it in your project)::

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{{ STATIC_URL }}feedback/css/feedback.css" />

<script type="text/javascript" src="{{ STATIC_URL }}feedback/js/jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="{{ STATIC_URL }}feedback/js/feedback.js"></script>

And then in templates where you want feedback to appear::

{% load feedback_tags %}
....

{% feedback %}

Add *'(r'^feedback', include('feedback.urls')'* to your urls::

urlpatterns = patterns( '',
....
(r'^feedback', include('feedback.urls'),
)

Don't forget to run ::

./manage.py syncdb

to create the table that is going to receive the feedbacks.

Receiving mail of feedbacks
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If you wish to receive mail when someone posts some feedback then you need to
configure these which are the defaults::

FEEDBACK_SEND_MAIL = True
FEEDBACK_FROM = 'feedback@example.com'
FEEDBACK_REPLY_TO_USER = True
FEEDBACK_TO = map(lambda x:x[1], settings.MANAGERS) (should be managers emails)
FEEDBACK_SUBJECT = '[feedback] %(path)s'
FEEDBACK_BODY = '%(feedback)s'

In `FEEDBACK_SUBJECT` and `FEEDBACK_BODY` you are able to customize the text.
each string is formatted with a dict containing information on the feedback.
Dict is::

{'id': 42,
'feedback': 'This is a random comment made by random person',
'path': 'url the feedback was made on',
'user': User object,
'request': request object, # You can access IP and USER_AGENT via request.
...} # You can access any data sent by your form here so you can customize at will
# By just sending additional field in the form.

Other settings are::

FEEDBACK_ASK_EMAIL = False

Asks user to write his email when it is missing from his account.
