django-live-support 0.1.7

A django app that lets you chat with visitors to your site.

Latest Version: 0.1.9

django-live-support
=================
A live support chat app for django that lets you chat with visitors to your
site through the Django Admin interface.

Dependancies
============

- django (tested with 1.3)
- simplejson (required if using python 2.5, suggested otherwise)

Getting Started
=============

To get started simply install using ``pip``:
::
    pip install django-live-support

Add ``live_support`` to your installed apps and ``syncdb`` (or migrate, if
you have south installed).

Your installed apps should look something like this:
::
        INSTALLED_APPS = (
            'django.contrib.auth',
            'django.contrib.contenttypes',
            'django.contrib.sessions',
            'django.contrib.sites',
            'django.contrib.messages',
            'django.contrib.admin',
            'live_support',
        )

Add ``live_support.urls`` to your urls.py, like so:
::
    from django.conf.urls.defaults import patterns, include, url

    from django.contrib import admin
    admin.autodiscover()

    urlpatterns = patterns('',
        url(r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)),
        url(r'^support/', include('live_support.urls')),
    )


If you are going to use the chat_iframe templatetag, be sure that you have
'django.core.context_processors.request' in your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS.

Usage
=============

You can either override the template for the ``start_chat``
(live_support/start_chat.html) and ``client_chat``
(live_support/live_support.html) views and just point users to the root
of the live_support app as defined in your urls.py file, or you can drop
the ``{% chat_iframe %}`` templatetag into your base template, but be sure
to include {% load live_support_tags %} at the top of your template, which
will render the chat sidebar (which pops out into a chat window) on every
page.
