django-threaded-messages 0.1.36

User-to-user threaded messaging system (similar to facebook) for Django


This app is very similar to the Messaging System on Facebook.
There are tests, but they are from the project I forked it from. I will update and improve them once I get around to it.

* Each Message is a thread with participants and messages
* Inbox with filter for read and unread messages
* Outbox
* Fulltext search support using Haystack
* Users are notified using django-notification when new messages arrive
* Batch update to set messages to read/unread/delete
* Ajax posting of messages within thread
* Can be used with jquery.tokeninput to offer a similar usuability as Facebook when it comes to selecting recipients.
* Installable using pip and easy_install
* Modular message sending using facebox

User Search
The app comes with a very basic user search component. If you want to extend it or adapt it to your needs
look at views.recipient_search. Adapt your own version in a seperate app and then
change the call in your compose templates::
$("#id_recipient").tokenInput("{% url recipient_search %}?format=json", parameters)

to point to your custom view.

* Haystack
* Django-notification
* django-avatar
* django-pagination
* django-uni-form

pip install -e


pip install django-threaded-messages

There are two other repositories doing this (one of them is not maintained anymore):

I am not sure what the exact differences are to this implementation. I am pretty certain that they don't include read/unread, fulltext search, pip install etc.
