"Generic Django Apps Plugin System"

Project description

The GDAPS library allows Django to make real "pluggable" apps.

A standard Django "app" is reusable (if done correctly), but is not pluggable, like being distributed and "plugged" into a Django main application without modifications. GDAPS is filling this gap.

The reason you want to use GDAPS is: you want to create an application that should be extended via plugins. GDAPS consists of a few bells and twistles where Django lacks "automagic":

  • Apps are automatically found using setuptools' entry points
  • Apps can provide their own URLs (they are included and merged into urlpatterns automatically)
  • Apps can define Interfaces, that other GDAPS apps then can implement
  • Apps can provide Javascript frontends that are found and compiled automatically (WorkInProgress)


You can support me in various ways.

  • Test the code and write bug reports.
  • Write code
  • Write ideas (as bug report)
  • Support this work financially. Feel free to send me a few bucks vie Ethereum at 0xf29f45a3632a1721b9ea3795808337eba06e1814: Ethereum QR-code


I was majorly influenced by other plugin systems when writing this code, big thanks to them:
