django-tos is a reusable Django application for setting Terms of Service.

Project description


Build Status

This project gives the admin the ability to reset terms of agreement with the end users. It tracks when TOS are changed and when users agree to the new TOS.


  • Keeps track of when TOS is changed
  • Users need to be informed and agree/re-agree when they login (custom login is provided)
  • Just two models (TOS and user agreement)


  1. Add tos to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.

  2. Run the command syncdb.

  3. In your root urlconf file add:

    # terms of service links
    urlpatterns += patterns('',
        url(r'^login/$', 'tos.views.login', {}, 'auth_login',),
        url(r'^terms-of-service/', include('tos.urls')),


django-tos internationalization using django-modeltranslation.


Assuming you have correctly installed django-tos in your app you only need to add following apps to INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS += ('modeltranslation', 'tos_i18n')

and also you should also define your languages in Django LANGUAGES variable, eg.:

    ('pl', 'Polski'),
    ('en', 'English'),

Please note that adding those to INSTALLED_APPS changes Django models. Concretely it adds for every registered field that should translated, additional fields with name field_<lang_code>, e.g. for given model:

class MyModel(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=10)

There will be generated fields: name , name_en, name_pl.

You should probably migrate your database, using South is recommended. Migrations should be kept in your local project.

How to migrate tos with South

Here is some step-by-step example how to convert your legacy django-tos instalation synced using syncdb into a translated django-tos-i18n with South migrations.

  1. Inform South that you want to store migrations in custom place by putting this in your Django settings file:

        'tos': 'YOUR_APP.migrations.tos',
  2. Add required directory (package):

    mkdir -p YOUR_APP/migrations/tos
    touch YOUR_APP/migrations/tos/
  3. Create initial migration (referring to the database state as it is now):

    python schemamigration --initial tos
  4. Fake migration (because the changes are already in the database):

    python migrate tos --fake
  5. Install tos_i18n (and modeltranslation) to INSTALLED_APPS:

    INSTALLED_APPS += ('modeltranslation', 'tos_i18n',)
  6. Make sure that the Django LANGUAGES setting is properly configured.

  7. Migrate what changed:

    $ python schemamigration --auto tos
    $ python migrate tos

That’s it. You are now running tos in i18n mode with the languages you declared in LANGUAGES setting. This will also make all required adjustments in the Django admin.

For more info on how translation works in details please refer to the django-modeltranslation documentation.
