Signals for posting messages on Facebook and Twitter.

Project description

Signals for posting messages on Facebook and Twitter.

Requirements

  • Django
  • facepy
  • python-twitter

Installation

Using PyPI you can simply type into a terminal:

pip install django-social-poster

or:

easy_install django-social-poster

Configuration

Add social_poster to the list of INSTALLED_APPS in your settings.py file.

Following settings are required:

Twitter

  • TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY
  • TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET
  • TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_KEY
  • TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET

You have to create a new Twitter application. After creating one, the four required strings are in the details tab. Please make sure that the application can write. You can set the permissions in the settings tab.

Facebook

  • FACEBOOK_ACCESS_TOKEN: You can get the required access token at the Graph Explorer

In your models, you have to create a new model which inherits from social_poster.models.AbstractSocialPoster. Please override twitter_message and facebook_message, because they are empty. Don’t forget to sync your database!

Last but not least, add signals:

from social_poster import signals
models.signals.post_save.connect(signals.post_to_twitter,
                                 sender=MyModel)
models.signals.post_save.connect(signals.post_to_facebook,
                                 sender=MyModel)
