Extensible, hierarchical, and pluggable navigation system for Django sites
An extensible, hierarchical, and pluggable navigation system for Django sites.
django-treenav was designed from the start to live independent of a CMS implementation. As a separate application, treenav can easily be integrated into existing, custom setups and does not enforce or require users to use a particular content management system.
Sharing the same principles, django-pagelets integrates seamlessly with treenav and can be used together to create a flexible CMS product.

Generic functionality with multiple URL specifications: get_absolute_url(), reverse(), or raw URLs
Packaged with templates to render the tree hierarchy with nested <ul>’s, but can easily be overridden with custom templates
Useful CSS classes for flexible UI customization
Automatically sets “active” on item and item’s parents if PATH_INFO is equal to item.href
Efficient: minimizes database access with django-mptt functionality
Caches the tree so that repeated page views to not hit the database.
Simple links in the MenuItem list view for refreshing the cache and href from the database.
