A simple Django app for newsticker with a row level permission based workflow.

Project description

django-ticker is a reusable Django application that provides a ticker like news section including row level permissions. What does this mean?

In django-ticker you have a fine grained permission control what the (administrative) user can do and what not. Besides the default Django permissions – add, change, delete – there are some extra permissions:

  • change_foreign
  • publish

Originally this was created for the news section of the German Django community where foreign users could add articles but had no permission to publish them, cause a moderator must check these articles first.

It’s easy to create a pressroom like workflow, assumed we have different people with different permissions:

The freelance journalist:

Granted permissions: add, change

  • can add articles
  • can change his articles (only his own)
  • can not delete his articles
  • can set the status of the article to “closed” or “draft”. Draft means, that the article is ready for check by a moderator.
  • in the admin list of articles, they see only they own
The journalist:

Granted permissions: add, change, delete, publish

  • can add articles
  • can change and delete his articles (only his own)
  • can set the status of the article to “closed”, “draft” or “published”
  • in the admin list of articles, they see only their own
The chief editor (or moderator):

Granted permissions: add, change, delete, publish, change_foreign

  • can add articles
  • can change and delete all (!) articles
  • can set the status of the article to “closed”, “draft” or “published”
  • in the admin list of articles, they see all articles
The proofreader (or subject specialist):

Granted permissions: change, change_foreign

  • can not add articles
  • can not delete articles
  • can not publish articles
  • can change all articles (e.g. for correction)
  • in the admin list of articles, they see all articles

So, you can mix these permissions and create a workflow that perfectly fits your needs.
