A Django application that allows users to follow django model objects

The ``followit`` django app allows to easily set up a
capability for the site users to follow various things on the site,
represented by django model ``followit.models.FollowRecord``
using the ``django.contrib.models.ContentTypes`` system.

Release Notes
=============
Starting the version ``0.2.0``, django-followit supports django 1.8.

Starting the version ``0.1.0``, `django-followit` supports django 1.7.
Also starting this version, method `register` must be called from your app's
`AppConfig.ready()` method.

Starting the version ``0.0.8`` it is not necessary to run ``syncdb`` for this app,
but instead run the ``migrate`` command.

Setup
========

Then, in the body of `AppConfig.ready` method, add::
import followit

Not it will be possible for the user to follow instances of ``SomeModel``.

If you decide to allow following another model, just add another
``followit.register(...)`` statement.
