Django-poll-system (example:


Django 1.3 or 1.4 JQuery (There are some problems with animation in older versions.)


  1. Install the package into your ecosystem
    >> easy_install django_poll_system
  2. Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS (in, like this:

INSTALLED_APPS = ( 'django.contrib.auth', 'django.contrib.contenttypes', 'django.contrib.sessions', 'django.contrib.sites', 'django.contrib.messages', 'django.contrib.staticfiles', 'django.contrib.admin', 'django.contrib.admindocs',

'poll', )

  1. Add the poll's url to your

from django.conf.urls.defaults import patterns, include, url

from django.contrib import admin from django.contrib.staticfiles.urls import staticfiles_urlpatterns from views import TestView


urlpatterns = patterns('',

url(r'^$', TestView.as_view(), name='home'), url(r'^admin/doc/', include('django.contrib.admindocs.urls')), url(r'^admin/', include(,

url(r'^poll/', include('poll.urls')),


urlpatterns += staticfiles_urlpatterns()

  1. Your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS (in should looks like this:
# Uncomment for Django 1.3
#'django.core.context_processors.auth', # Uncomment for Django 1.4 #'django.contrib.auth.context_processors.auth',

'django.core.context_processors.i18n', 'django.core.context_processors.request', 'django.core.context_processors.static',


  1. Eventually we need to do "syncdb". >> python syncdb
  2. Now installation is completed. After all you need to create a queue of polls and at least one poll for it.
  3. Insert the component into your page. Use the code snippet below to understand how to do that.

{% load polls_tags %} <html>

<title>Test page</title> <script type="text/javascript" src="{{ STATIC_URL }}path_to_jquery/jquery.js"></script>

</head> <body>

<h1>Test page</h1> {% poll_queue "YourQueueName" %}
