Project description

A reusable Django app that renders a set of social media links, i.e. for your website footer.

Installation

To get the latest stable release from PyPi:

$ pip install django-social-media-links

To get the latest commit from GitHub:

$ pip install -e git+git://github.com/bitmazk/django-social-media-links.git#egg=social_media_links

Add social_media_links to your INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...,
    'social_media_links',
)

Don’t forget to migrate your database:

./manage.py migrate social_media_links

If you want to use the social icons as provided by [monosocialfont](http://drinchev.github.io/monosocialiconsfont/) you should add the following stylesheet to your base.html:

<head>
    <link href="{% static "social_media_links/css/styles.css" %}" rel="stylesheet" media="screen">
</head>
<body>
    // Use it like so:
    <span class="symbol">&#xe224;</span>
</body>

Usage

First you need to create a set of LinkType objects. You may want to assign symbols to them. In order to find out the codes for the symbols, please refer to http://drinchev.github.io/monosocialiconsfont/

We provide an assignment tag that returns all social media links in your database. You can use it like so:

{% load social_media_links_tags %}
{% get_social_media_links as social_media_links %}
{% if social_media_links %}
    <ul>
        {% for link in social_media_links %}
            <li><span class="symbol">{{ link.link_type.symbol|safe }}</span><a href="{{ link.url }}" title="{{ link.title }}">{{ link.name }}</a></li>
        {% endfor %}
    </ul>
{% endif %}

Or shorter:

{% load social_media_links_tags %}
{% get_social_media_links as social_media_links %}
{% if social_media_links %}
    <ul>
        {% include "social_media_links/partials/link_list.html" with links=social_media_links %}
    </ul>
{% endif %}
