django-preview 0.1

Managing preview subscription in Django
django-preview is a clone of django-beta module. It is a simple application to help you capture pre-beta interest with your sites.

By default django-beta only captures a user's email address, however you can alternately set one of these two configuration options:

django-preview add next additional functionality:
1. After user sign up, it receive email with information about subscription
2. User can unsubscribe following the url, recieved in email

Configuration

PREVIEW_CAPTURE_FIRST = True, will use a form and require the user to enter their first name and email address.(Default: False)

PREVIEW_CAPTURE_BOTH = True, will use a form and require the user enter their first name, last name, and email address.(Default: False)

PREVIEW_SEND_MAIL = False, will disable sending mail to user during subscribtion. (Default = True)

If PREVIEW_SEND_MAIL = True (default) you must properly configure django to send mail:
    Mail is sent using the SMTP host and port specified in the EMAIL_HOST and EMAIL_PORT settings. The EMAIL_HOST_USER and EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD settings, if set, are used to authenticate to the SMTP server, and the EMAIL_USE_TLS setting controls whether a secure connection is used.

    Fox example, to use gmail account set in setting.py settings like this:
    DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL = 'username@gmail.com'
    EMAIL_USE_TLS = True
    EMAIL_HOST = 'smtp.gmail.com'
    EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'username@gmail.com'
    EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = 'your_gmail_password'
    EMAIL_PORT = 587
