python install

Installation with pip

decorator_include is intended for use in URL confs as a replacement for the django.conf.urls.include function. It works in almost the same way as include, however the first argument should be either a decorator or an iterable of decorators to apply, in reverse order, to all included views. Here is an example URL conf:

from django.conf.urls import url
from django.contrib.auth.decorators import login_required

from decorator_include import decorator_include

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^$', 'mysite.views.index', name='index'),
    url(r'^secret/', decorator_include(login_required, 'mysite.secret.urls')),

Running tests

If decorator_include is in the INSTALLED_APPS of your project, and it was installed with the test (ie not from PyPI) simply run:

django-admin test decorator_include

You may want to use django-admin or ./ depending on your installation.

If you are in a fresh virtualenv to work on decorator_include, install the django version you want:

pip install django

Then make the decorator_include module available in your python path. For example, with virtualenv-wrapper, considering you are at the root of the django-decorator-include repository, simply do:

add2virtualenv src

Or simply:

pip install -e .

Then to run the tests, this library provides a test project, so you can launch them this way:

DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=decorator_include.tests.testproject.settings test decorator_include

Or simply launch the script (it will run this exact command):
