django-tokenfield 0.1.0

A token field for Django
django-tokenfield is a Django app that provides a token based form field for Django. Its interface is very similar to the message recipient input on Facebook or iOS. It behaves as a normal text field but allows custom placeholders to be inserted at any position.

It allows normal string data that may contain predefined placeholder tokens.

One use-case is when you want to collect a "destination filename" for a set of records

It's original use was in a tool that allowed database records to be dumped to individual files.

Using the field is as simple as:

from django_tokenfield import TokenField

class ArticleTemplate(forms.Form):
 title = TokenField()

import django_tables2 as tables

class SimpleTable(tables.Table):
 class Meta:
 model = Simple

This would then be used in a view:

def simple_list(request):
 queryset = Simple.objects.all()
 table = SimpleTable(queryset)
 return render_to_response("simple_list.html", {"table": table},

And finally in the template:

{% load django_tables2 %}
{% render_table table %}

This example shows one of the simplest cases, but django-tables2 can do a lot more! Check out the documentation for more details.
