django-categories 1.2.1

A way to handle one or more hierarchical category trees in Django
django-categories is a Django app that attempts to provide a generic category system that multiple apps could use. It uses MPTT for the tree storage and provides a custom admin for better visualization (copied and modified from feinCMS).

Goals of the project

 * Have a generic method for handling hierarchical data
 * Allow multiple independent trees, or just one tree
 * Have a widget for use in forms
 * In templates:

- Show one level of a tree
 + All root categories
 + Just children of a specified category

- Show multiple levels
 + Ancestors of category, category and all children of category
 + Category and its children

- An inclusion tag for common methods of formatting categories
 + Grandparent :: Parent :: Child
