Integrates Mezzanine CMS with Instagram

Project description

Installation

In virtualenv:

$ pip install mezzanine_instagram

Configuration

In settings.py:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'mezzanine_instagram',
)

DASHBOARD_TAGS = (
    ...
    ("mezzanine_tags.recent_actions", 'instagram_tags.instagram',),
)

INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_ID = os.getenv('INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_ID')
INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_SECRET = os.getenv('INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_SECRET')

In urls.py:

urlpatterns = patterns(
    '',
    ("^instagram/", include("mezzanine_instagram.urls")),
    ...
)

Configure INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_ID and INSTAGRAM_CLIENT_SECRET environment variables. Access Django admin, click Authorize Instagram.

Once you’ve authorized your site you’ll be able to access /instagram/ in your browser to view the feed for the authorized user.

Media Stream

Requires a caching mechanism like Memcached, Database or Filesystem. Will not work with Local-memory or Dummy.

Add a tag or more to use when generating the stream by going to Dashboard > Tags. Then run the provided management command to generate the stream.

$ python manage.py build_tags_stream

Now you can access the Media in Dashboard. At first all images have a green outline indicating that they’ll be shown to the public. Click on the image to exclude it from your stream (the outline will turn red).

We recommend using cron or similar to run the management command on a regular basis. Please be aware that Instagram limits how often you can access their API.

The curated media stream is available to the public at /instagram/tags/.
