A feedback application for Django
django-voice integrates user feedback with your Django project. Originally built for Verb (http://verbapp.com).
IMPORTANT: Upgrading to 0.4 from older versions
If you upgrade django-voice to 0.4 from older versions, you will take an error about database changing:
DatabaseError at /feedback/ no such column: djangovoice_feedback.email
You have two ways for fixing the problem.
If you want to use South..
Fake the first migration and run the second migration:
python manage.py migrate --fake djangovoice 0001 python manage.py migrate djangovoice
If you don’t want to use South..
Open your SQL shell and add email column to djangovoice_feedback:
python manage.py dbshell sqlite> ALTER TABLE "djangovoice_feedback" ADD COLUMN "email" varchar(75) NULL; sqlite> ALTER TABLE "djangovoice_feedback" ADD COLUMN "slug" varchar(10) NULL;
Installation and Dependencies
To satisfy dependencies listed in REQUIREMENTS you can simply run this command:
pip install -r requirements.txt
‘pip’ will automatically download and install dependencies required for django-voice. Next step is activating helper applications to run.
- Activate django’s comment system. (https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/contrib/comments/)
- Add django-gravatar (optional) and qhonuskan-votes to your INSTALLED_APPS in settings file.
- Add comments and django-voice to your url configration.
- Create at least one Type and Status either through the admin or fixtures.
After these steps, your INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py must be seen like this:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'django.contrib.comments', 'qhonuskan_votes', 'gravatar', # it's optional dependency 'djangovoice' )
and urls.py like this:
urlpatterns = patterns( ... url(r'^comments/', include('django.contrib.comments.urls')), url(r'^feedback/', include('djangovoice.urls')))
Remember to create and save at least one Type and Status model instance.
That’s all you need to run django-voice.
VOICE_ALLOW_ANONYMOUS_USER_SUBMIT (default: False) Allow anonymous user to submit feedback. Asks for email and marks the feedback as private to hide the email and prevent spam. VOICE_BRAND_VIEW (default: 'djangovoice_home') The view associated with clicking the brand logo in the top left of the bootstrap navbar.
