Name: cmsplugin-photologue Description: for django-cms. provides a plugin bridge between django-cms & django-photologue, for cms plugins, page apphook attachment, and navigation extension Download: http://bitbucket.org/tehfink/cmsplugin-photologue/

Requirements: - django-photologue: trunk - django-cms-2: 2.0.2 - django: 1.1.1

Setup: - this release is only compatible with django-cms 2.0.2 - make sure requirements are installed and properly working - add cmsplugin_photologue to python path - add 'cmsplugin_photologue' to settings.INSTALLED_APPS - add ('cmsplugin_photologue.urls', 'Photologue app') to settings.CMS_APPLICATIONS_URLS - add ('cmsplugin_photologue.navigation', 'Photologue app Navigation') to settings.CMS_NAVIGATION_EXTENDERS - run python manage.py syncdb and, if you haven't already, photologue's python manage.py plinit - add plugins to pages, or attach 'Photologue plugin app' and 'Photologue plugin navigation' to a page (you may have to restart server process for urls to an attached page to work, something with how django-cms caches urls)

Upgrading: - new fields were added to the plugin models. here's how to upgrade your models: $ python manage.py dbshell > alter table cmsplugin_photologuegalleryplugin add column template varchar(255) DEFAULT 'default'; > alter table cmsplugin_photologuephotoplugin add column template varchar(255) DEFAULT 'default'; > alter table cmsplugin_photologuegalleryplugin add column sample_size smallint DEFAULT 3; - we've since added migrations from south, so this won't be necessary in the future

Versioning: i'm going to _try_ and track the most recent django-cms release and the current trunk, starting with 2.0.2. - branches are named based on django-cms; eg: cms-2.X - releases are tagged based on django-cms; eg: cms-2.0.2

Optional: - the photologue default templates extend a 'base.html', while django-cms uses a default 'index.html'. quick solution: create a 'base.html' placeholder template which extends 'index.html'. see 'cmsplugin_photologue/templates/base.html' for an example. - recommended: install cms-context_processors (or your own), so {{ site }} will work in photologue pages attached to cms pages. NB: this should be fixed in latest django-cms trunk. does it work for anyone? - define in settings.py:

CMS_APPLICATIONS_URLS - django cms apphook CMS_NAVIGATION_EXTENDERS - django cms navigation extenders CMSPLUGIN_PHOTOLOGUE_ROOT_URL - defines base url for apphook CMSPLUGIN_PHOTOLOGUE_GALLERY_TEMPLATES & CMSPLUGIN_PHOTOLOGUE_PHOTO_TEMPLATES - define custom templates for gallery & photo plugins CMSPLUGIN_PHOTOLOGUE_SAMPLE_SIZE - number of random photos to show in gallery template, overrides photologue's setting CMSPLUGIN_PHOTOLOGUE_CSS_CHOICES - define multiple css classes to apply to plugins CMSPLUGIN_PHOTOLOGUE_GALLERY_TEMPLATES_CHOICES - define multiple custom templates for gallery plugins CMSPLUGIN_PHOTOLOGUE_PHOTO_TEMPLATES_CHOICES - define multiple custom templates for photo plugins
  • copy cmsplugin_photologue/templates/plugins/ to your project's template directory

Example Projects: - are stripped down, slightly modified versions of django-cms' example project for each relevant version - require a virtualenv with the requirements above installed - should work out of the box - username/password: admin/password


in settings.py:

('cmsplugin_photologue.urls', 'Photologue plugin app'),

) #allows apphook in 'Advanced Settings' of django-cms page

('cmsplugin_photologue.navigation.get_nodes', 'Photologue plugin navigation'),

) #extends django-cms menu navigation with photologue navigation tree

'name': 'pl-gallery-archive-day', 'template': '', 'extra_args': { 'year': '2010', 'month': 'jan', 'day': '3' }

} #define a photologue urlpatterns as the root apphook url (defaults to 'pl-gallery-archive'): ##name: urlpattern from photologue.urls ##template: your custom template, leave blank to use photologue's default ##extra_args: extra arguments required by the photologue urls

('default', 'photologue_gallery.html'), ('Galleriffic simple', 'galleriffic_simple.html'), ('Galleriffic black', 'galleriffic_black.html'),


('default', 'photologue_photo.html'), ('Lightbox blue', 'lightbox_blue1.html'),

) #define custom templates for gallery & photo plugins

CMSPLUGIN_PHOTOLOGUE_CSS_CHOICES = (('0', ''),('1', 'left'),('2', 'right'),('3', 'center'),) ) #adds an optional css class to the gallery or photo enclosing div in the plugin templates

CMSPLUGIN_PHOTOLOGUE_SAMPLE_SIZE = 3 #overrides photologue.urls.SAMPLE_SIZE : 'Number of random images from the gallery to display.'

in a template:

{% get_latest_galleries All as latest_galleries %} {% for latest in latest_galleries %} ... {% endfor %}

{% get_latest_photos 5 as latest_photos %} {% for latest in latest_photos %} ... {% endfor %}
