TODO: write complete description
This section describes step by step integration of django-plans with your application.
Enable plans application in django¶
Add this app to your
INSTALED_APPS in django settings.py:
INSTALLED_APPS += ('plans', 'ordered_model',)
The app ‘ordered_model’ is required to display the assets used in the django admin to manage the plan model ordering
You should also define all other variables in
settings.py marked as required.
They are described in detail in section Configuration via settings.
Don’t forget to run:
$ python manage.py syncdb
If you are going to use South migrations please read section Working with South migrations.
Enable context processor¶
Section Templates describes a very helpful content processor that you should definitely enable in your project settings in this way:
from django.conf import global_settings TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = global_settings.TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS + ( 'plans.context_processors.account_status' )
Send signal when user account is fully activated¶
You need to explicitly tell django-plans that user has fully activated account. django-plans provides a special signal that it listen to.
You should send this signal providing
user argument as an object of
auth.User. django-plans will use this information to initialize plan for this user, i.e. set account expiration date and will mark the default plan as active for this account.
If you use django-registration app for managing user registration process, you are done. django-plans automagically integrates with this app (if it is available) and will activate user plan when django-registration send it’s signal after account activation.
