Django Favorites

My generic favorites framework for Django fork. This fork differentiates from it's parent mainly in front-end: - it uses a single view to process ajax fav/unfav (like/unlike) action - has a single templatetag to render a fav/unfav button - includes a jquery function to handle the ajax button click

Dependencies: My fork uses the ajax_login_required decorator from


  • ./ install or copy /favorites to your project directory
  • add 'favorites' to your INSTALLED_APPS
  • add favorites.urls to your
  • copy javascript /static/js/jquery.django-favorites.js file to your media folder and include it in your template. It depends on Jquery.

Basic usage examples:

#Render a fav/unfav button in your templata

{% load favorite_tags %} {% for post in blog_posts %}

<h3>{{ post.title }}</h3> <p>{{ post.content }}</p> <div class="actions">{% if user.is_authenticated %}{% fav_item post user %}{% endif %}</div>

{% endfor %}

#Get all favorites for user

favs = Favorite.objects.favorites_for_user(user)

#Get only blogpost favorites for user

content_type = get_object_or_404(ContentType, app_label='myblogapp', model='blogpost') favs = Favorite.objects.favorites_for_user(user).filter(content_type=content_type)

You can configure the text messages overriding these values in your or override the templatetag
