Allows you to use django forms with turbogears

Project description

About Turbo Django Forms
-------------------------

Turbo Django Forms is a basic package that allows you to use Django forms
in turbogears. You should be able to follow the django documentation to
deal with validation etc.

Installing
-------------------------------

tgext.djangoforms can be installed from pypi::

pip install tgext.djangoforms

should just work for most of the users

Enabling Turbo Django Forms
----------------------------------

In your application *lib/app_globals.py* import **TDForms**::

from tgext.djangoforms import TDForms

And call it inside the **__init__**::

class Globals(object):
def __init__(self):
self.tdf = TDForms()

Creating Forms
----------------------------

Creating forms works the same as with standard Django::

from django import forms

class ContactForm(forms.Form):
subject = forms.CharField(max_length=100)
message = forms.CharField()
sender = forms.EmailField()
cc_myself = forms.BooleanField(required=False)

Controller
----------------------------

You can follow most of the django forms tutorial::

@expose('mysite.templates.index')
def index(self, **kw):
"""Handle the front-page."""
if kw:
form = ContactForm(kw)

if form.is_valid():
print form.cleaned_data
//do stuff
tg.flash("Form OK")
else:
form = ContactForm()

return dict(page='Index', form=form)

Rendering Forms
----------------------------

You can use the standard django style template notation in your Genshi template - but add a g.tdf(...)::

<form>
${g.tdf(form.as_p)}
<button>Submit</button>
</form>
