Django-philosophy-phrases is an application for django project on three languages ( English, Ukrainian and Russian ). Using it you can add any philosophy phrases on your website. It has default phrases which you can simply import from admin part. And then you have to add variable to your view function and insert it into your template. You can add just phrase and its author, or popup. In phrase settings in your admin part you can choose background color of popup, color of phrases text and color of authors text. Also you have to choose language of phrases. If you choose 'auto', app will be detecting language using django

Quick start

  1. Add "philosophy_phrases" to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this:

  2. Include the philosophy_phrases URLconf in your project like this:

    from django.conf.urls import include, url
    url(r'^philosophy', include('philosophy_phrases.urls', namespace='philosophy_phrase')),
  3. To create the philosophy_phrases models run:

    python migrate
  4. For adding phrases into your template you can use one of the template tags:

    a) {% phrase_in_popup %} - it will return a string with html.

    {% load philosophy_extras %}
    {% phrase_in_popup %} 

    b) {% philosophy_phrase as phrase %} - it would return a dictionary with two variables:

    {% load philosophy_extras %}
    {% philosophy_phrase as phrase %}
            <p> {{ phrase.phrase }}</p>      # text of the phrase
            <p>{{ }}</p>       # author of the phrase

    Or you can use one of the functions in your view like this:

    a) function get_phrase() will return a dictionary consist phrase and its author.

    from philosophy_phrases.phrase import get_phrase
    def Your_view_name(request):
        phrase = get_phrase()

    and then insert it into your template:

    {{ phrase.phrase }}
    {{ }}

    b) function get_phrase_in_popup() will return html code for popup.

    from philosophy_phrases.phrase import get_phrase_in_popup()
    def Your_view_name(request):
        phrase = get_phrase_in_popup()

    and then insert it into your template (you have to use filter 'safe' for correct displaying html and js in your template):

    {{ phrase|safe }}
  5. If there is no any phrase in your db, functions get_phrase_in_popup() and get_phrase() will return an empty string.

  6. Start the development server and visit to create your own phrase or import phrases by default (you'll need the Admin app enabled).
  7. For importing phrases visit, and click on 'Import default phrases'. If you click on it second time it will not create copy of phrases or authors, but will add phrases by default if there is no any of them.
