A simple Django app for newsticker with a row level permission based workflow.
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:
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:
Granted permissions: add, change
Granted permissions: add, change, delete, publish
Granted permissions: add, change, delete, publish, change_foreign
Granted permissions: change, change_foreign
So, you can mix these permissions and create a workflow that perfectly fits your needs.
