Project description

# Django Theming

Django app to implement the concept of theming, allow theming for host url.

## Setup

**NOTE**: The following settings should be added to the project file ``.

1. Add 'theming' to `INSTALLED_APPS`:

INSTALLED_APPS += ( 'theming', )

2. Add 'theming.middleware.ThemingMiddleware' to `MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES`:

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES += ( 'theming.middleware.ThemingMiddleware', )

2. Add 'theming.loaders.ThemeLoader' to `TEMPLATE_LOADERS`:

TEMPLATE_LOADERS += ( 'theming.loaders.ThemeLoader', )

4. Declare `THEME_ROOT` and `MEDIA_ROOT`:

BASE_DIR = os.path.dirname(os.path.dirname(__file__))

THEME_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'themes')
MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'media')

5. Declare `MEDIA_URL`:

MEDIA_URL = '/media/'


THEME_MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join(MEDIA_ROOT, 'themes')
THEME_MEDIA_URL = os.path.join(MEDIA_URL, 'themes')

7. Declare host/theme config tuple `THEME_CONFIG`:

(r'^(.+\.)?dominio\.pe', 'default'),
(r'^(.+\.)?test\.pe', 'test'),

## Usage

It should create a folder `themes` at the project with the following structure:

| -- themes/
| -- default/ ** theme name
| -- templates/
| -- media/
| | -- styles/
| | -- scripts/
| | -- images/
| -- metadata.json

**NOTE**: We use `media` instead of `static` for independent assets by theme.

In the file `metadata.json` it should include information on the theme:

"slug": "default",
"name": "Default",
"description": "Theme Default",
"author": "RCP",
"version": "1.0"

You can use the template tag `theme` to refer to the theme assets as follows:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{% theme 'styles/main.css' %}" />

**NOTE**: The tamplate tag `theme` will refer to the `media/themes/<theme_name>` folder, if not find the file in that path, it will search in `static/`

You can use the command `collectthemes` to copy all assets of the theme to the location `media/`:

python collectthemes

- l, --link : Create a symbolic link to each file instead of copying.
- f, --force: Force to overwrite content.
