Django-monitor: CHANGE LOG


  • Django-monitor now generates a post_moderation signal whenever an object is moderated. Developers can make use of this if they want to invoke some function right after moderation. See docs/dev_howto.rst for details.


  • monitor now contains one more utility function, get_monitor_entry. It will return the monitor_entry that corresponds to the given object. Example:

    import monitor
  • The model, MonitorEntry now supports the following public methods to help developer:

    • approve, challenge and reset_to_pending to moderate objects by code. Combining with get_monitor_entry, a developer may write:

      import monitor
      my_inst = MyModel.objects.create(arg1 = 1)
      # my_inst is in pending status now.
      # Now it got approved.
    • moderate does the same job as above but can be used when the moderation status is not known but stored in some variable.

      # We want to set status of my_inst to the value stored in say, `status`.
    • is_approved, is_challenged and is_pending can be used to make

      sure that the desired object is in some particular moderation status.

  • BUGFIX: There was a bug with our save_handler function which handled the post_save moderation. Whenever an object is saved, the function would invoke moderate_rel_objects which in turn reset status of the objects and all of its related objects to PENDING_STATUS. moderate_rel_objects should be invoked here for newly created objects only. Fixed.

  • The documentation is updated to inlcude new changes in code.
