django_forest 0.1.1

Composite views for REST services.

Composite pages for django.


We are at the cheese-shop:

pip install django_forest


In order to use django_forest in your project:

  1. Include mptt and forest in your INSTALLED_APPS settings.
  2. Enable django-admin.
  3. In your terminal, type: python syncdb
  4. Followed by: python runserver
  5. Point your browser to localhost:8000/admin
  6. Create a few Pages: Pages are defined as well, web-pages only that in context of django_forest, they contain Widgets.
  7. Create a few Widgets: Little boxes that point to a URL. The URL is used to get a partial-HTML rendered from a server or JSON which is then rendered into HTML client-side using handlebar.js templates.
  8. And finally we have Templates: If you haven’t guessed already, these are client-side handlebar.js snippets that will get their context from the JSON at the URL defined in the Widget.
  9. The above arrangement is all you need to make composite pages. There is room for improvement: For instance, the gridster.js that allows for drag-and-drop functionality does not currently serialize its state to the server. However, I intend to iron-out these niggles in the coming release.Watch this space.
