Jmbo generic behaviour/templates app.

Project description

Jmbo Generic

Jmbo generic behavior/templates app.


  1. Install or add jmbo-generic to your Python path.

  2. Install django-preferences as described here.

  3. Add generic to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.

  4. Add generic URL include to your project’s file:

    (r'^', include('generic.urls')),
  5. jmbo-generic includes a number of template sets allowing you to deliver lightweight(zero), mobile(basic) or desktop/touch(full) specific output. Specifying which template set to use is simply a matter of specifying a TEMPLATE_TYPE setting, and adding generic.loaders.TypeLoader to the TEMPLATE_LOADERS setting. For example to use the basic template set update your settings as follows:

    TEMPLATE_TYPE = "basic"
        ...other template loader classes...

    This causes templates to be loaded from a path prefixed with whatever value was specified as the TEMPLATE_TYPE setting. For example in this case a template specified as generic/home.html would actually be loaded from basic/generic/home.html.


    You have to add TypeLoader as the first loader for it to resolve templates correctly.

  6. jmbo-generic includes static media resources which you need to configure as described in Django`s managing static files documentation.
