django-messages 0.5.0

A Django application handling private messages between users.
django-messages is a plugin for Django that enables your users to send private messages to each other. It provides a basic set of functionality your would expect from such a system. Every user has an Inbox, an Outbox and a Trash. Messages can be composed and there is an easy url-based approach to preloading the compose-form with the recipient-user, which makes it extremly easy to put "send xyz a message" links on a profile-page.

Currently django-messages comes with 4 translations: de, fr (thanks froland), es_AR (thanks Juanjo-sfe) an pl (thanks maczewski).


Download the tar archive, unpack and run python install or checkout the trunk and put the messages folder on your PYTHONPATH. Trunk-version is recommended if you run django-trunk. The current packed release is still 0.96 compatible.


Add messages to your INSTALLED_APPS setting and add an include('messages.urls') at any point in your url-conf.

The app includes some default templates, which are pretty simple. They extend a template called "base.html" and only emit stuff in the block "content" and block "sidebar". You may want to use your own templates, but the included ones are good enough for testing and getting started.
