a Django timeline (activity stream) using redis

Project Description

There are two parts to using event streams. The first is to declare an Event, it looks like this:

from django.contrib.auth.models import User

from timeline.base import EventType
from yourapp.library.models import Item

class AddedToLibrary(EventType):
    slug = "added-to-library"
    context_shape = {
        "user": User,
        "item": Item,
    queryable_by = ["user", "item"]

And then there is querying, all querying is encapsulated in the timeline.base.Stream class. It is used like so:


will return a Stream for all of the events for the User. It can take any number of positional arguments and it will combine their streams.

It also takes a number of keyword arguments. event_type which will return only Events for a given slug. limit a number saying how many Events should be included, defaults to 20. cluster a boolean saying whether the data returned should be clustered, if it is than it yields a list of Events, rather than discrete Events.
