Installation
===============
You can install django-simple-audit in 2 ways: using pip or by setup.py install

.. code-block:: bash

$ pip install django-simple-audit


Then modify your settings.py, adding the package `simple_audit` in INSTALLED_APPS and in MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES add
`simple_audit.middleware.TrackingRequestOnThreadLocalMiddleware`:

.. code-block:: bash

INSTALLED_APPS = (
'...',
'simple_audit',
)

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
'...',
'simple_audit.middleware.TrackingRequestOnThreadLocalMiddleware',
)

DJANGO_SIMPLE_AUDIT_ACTIVATED = True

Usage
======

Tracking changes on a model
----------------------------

to audit a model you need import `simple_audit` and then register the model to be audited.

.. code-block:: python

from django.db import models
import simple_audit


class Message(models.Model):

title = models.CharField(max_length=50, blank=False)
text = models.TextField(blank=False)

def __unicode__(self):
return self.text


class Owner(models.Model):

name = models.CharField(max_length=50, blank=False)

def __unicode__(self):
return self.name


class VirtualMachine(models.Model):

name = models.CharField(max_length=50, blank=False)
cpus = models.IntegerField()
owner = models.ForeignKey(Owner)
so = models.CharField(max_length=100, blank=False)
started = models.BooleanField()

def __unicode__(self):
return self.name


simple_audit.register(Message, Owner, VirtualMachine)

Advanced Usage (without httprequest or our middleware)
--------------------------------------------------------

You can use django-simple-audit without an http request (for example in management command). In this situation
there is no http request on thread context. To ensure gathering all modification on a single AuditRequest, you can
specify it:

.. code-block:: python

AuditRequest.new_request(path, user, ip)
try:
# my code... in same thread
finally:
AuditRequest.cleanup_request()

Tracking m2m fields changes
----------------------------

Tracking m2m fields changes is still experimental, but you can enable it with the following variable:

DJANGO_SIMPLE_AUDIT_M2M_FIELDS = True

You need to have at least one cache backend set in your django settings, otherwise the previous settings will be set to False.

CACHES = {
'default': {
'BACKEND': 'django.core.cache.backends.locmem.LocMemCache',
'LOCATION': 'unique',
'TIMEOUT': 300,
}
}
