Base HTML templates for DBCA Django projects

========================
DBCA Django web template
========================

This project consists of a basic Django application containing HTML
templates that provide a starting point for web applications used by the
`Department`_. The base template consists of a mobile-friendly
HTML5 template with a fixed top navbar, plus static assets.
The project also contains functional examples of **login** and
**logged out** templates.

The base template is based upon `HTML5 Boilerplate`_, and includes the
`Bootstrap 3`_ CSS framework.

Installation
============

#. Install via pip: ``pip install webtemplate-dpaw``.
#. Add ``'webtemplate_dpaw'`` to ``INSTALLED_APPS``.
#. Ensure that the ``staticfiles`` application is included and configured
correctly.
#. Ensure that you have defined the following named URLs: ``login`` and
``logout`` (this requirement can be overriden, see below).
#. Extend the included base template by placing the following at the head
of your own templates: ``{% extends "webtemplate_dpaw/base.html" %}``
#. Place page content within the required blocks (see below).

Included CSS and JavaScript
===========================

The base template currently includes the following CSS and JavaScript assets
(served via the Department's internal mirror of `CDNJS`_):

#. Modernizr 2.8.3 (HTML5 polyfills)
#. Bootstrap 3.3.5 (CSS & JS)
#. jQuery 2.1.4 (DOM traversal, etc.)

Additional styling can be included using the ``extra_style`` or ``extra_js``
blocks, like so::

{% load static from staticfiles %}

{% block extra_style %}
{{ block.super }}
<link rel="stylesheet" href="{% static 'css/custom.css' %}">
{% endblock %}

You can also overide the ``base_style`` and ``base_js`` blocks completely to
use different CSS or JS libraries. Note that you will also need to replace the
``top_navbar`` block contents if you replace the base Bootstrap CSS & JS.

Template blocks
===============

The base template contains a number of block tags that are used to render the
content of your project. The main template content blocks are as follows:

- ``navbar_links`` - used to define navigation links in the top navbar.
- ``navbar_auth`` - used to display either a **Login** or **Logout** link.
- ``page_content`` - used to contain the page's main content.
- ``page_footer`` - used to contain a page footer area.

Note that the ``navbar_auth`` block contains ``{% url %}`` templatetags with
named URLs called *login* and *logout*. If this is not required or
inappropriate for your project, simply override the ``navbar_auth`` block.

In addition, a number of context variables are defined:

- ``page_title`` - used to populate the page **<title>** tags.
- ``site_title`` - used to populate the projects's title in the top navbar.

Context variables should be passed to templates in every view.

Examples
========

To populate the main content area with a narrow left sidebar and content
area that fills the whole screen width and will collapse elegantly on
narrow or mobile displays::

{% block page_content %}
<div class="container-fluid">
<div class="row">
<div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-4 col-md-3 col-lg-2" id="sidebar">
{% include "sidebar.html" %}
</div>
<div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-8 col-md-9 col-lg-10">
{% block page_content_inner %}{% endblock %}
</div>
</div>
</div>
{% endblock %}

To include a right-aligned copyright line in the footer area::

{% block page_footer %}
<div class="container-fluid">
<div class="row">
<div class="col-xs-12">
<hr>
<p class="pull-right">© 2015 Department of Parks and Wildlife</p>
</div>
</div>
</div>
{% endblock %}

To include no navigation links in the top navbar and to prevent the automatic
"navbar button" from showing on narrow displays, overide the ``navbar_button``
and ``navbar_links`` blocks to be empty::

{% block navbar_button %}{% endblock %}
{% block navbar_links %}{% endblock %}
