Places app.

Project description


YPLACES == Yet/Why Another Django Places App


1. Download dependencies:
- Python 2.6+
- Django 1.5+

2. ``pip install django-yplaces`` or ``easy_install django-yplaces``


1. Add "yplaces" to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this::

# all other installed apps

2. Add logger handler::

'version': 1,
'disable_existing_loggers': False,
'handlers': {
# all other handlers
'log_file_yplaces': {
'level': 'DEBUG',
'class': 'logging.handlers.RotatingFileHandler',
'filename': os.path.join(os.path.join(os.path.dirname( __file__ ), '..'), 'logs/yplaces.log'),
'maxBytes': '16777216', # 16megabytes
'loggers': {
# all other loggers
'yplaces': {
'handlers': ['log_file_yplaces'],
'propagate': True,
'level': 'DEBUG',

3. Configure YPLACES's settings::

# API URL Namespace (e.g. YPLACES URL is in /api/v1, and the respective Django URL namespaces are 'api' and 'v1')
'api_url_namespace': 'api:v1',

# Details on the sender of any emails sent by YPlaces.
'email_from': { 'name': 'John Doe', 'email': '' },

# Emails of the admins that receive certain emails (e.g. Place waiting to be reviewed)
'admin_emails': [{ 'name': 'BOFH', 'email': '' }],

# The title to be displayed in the app's index page and respective description.
'index_title': 'My Awesome App',
'index_description': 'This is a very awesome app where you can find anything!'

4. Don't forget to set the 'MEDIA_URL' variable, which defines the root folder to where files will be uploaded (e.g. profile pictures) and the
variable necessary for the full URL's of the pictures to be built::

MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'static/uploads/')
MEDIA_URL = HOST_URL + '/static/uploads/'

5. Configure template processors so tha every RequestContext will contain a variable request, which is the current HttpRequest. This will be used for stuff
such as knowing the current path.

from django.conf.global_settings import TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS as TCP

6. In order to enable sitemap.xml generator for places, make sure the respective django app is installed in 'INSTALLED_APPS':


Create a 'logs' folder in your project's root folder (if you don't have one already).
Your project folder should look something like this::



Run ``python syncdb`` to create the yplaces models.


1. Add app URL namespace to top-level ````::

# myproject/
# ============

from yplaces.sitemap import PlaceSitemap
sitemaps = {
# any other sitemaps
'restaurants': PlaceSitemap

urlpatterns = patterns('',
# all other url mappings

# Place's Sitemap.
url(r'^sitemap\.xml/?$', 'django.contrib.sitemaps.views.sitemap', { 'sitemaps': sitemaps }, name='sitemap'),

# Place's Pages.
url(r'^places', include('yplaces.urls', namespace='yplaces')),

2. Add app to API namespace::

# myproject/api/
# ============

urlpatterns = patterns('',
# all other api url mappings
url(r'^/places', include('yplaces.api.urls', namespace='yplaces')),
