  • DjangoSpecifications/AppGuidelines

    v4 v5  
    1 = Guidelines for writing, distributing and using Django applications =
    2 
    3 See
    4  * http://groups.google.com/group/django-developers/browse_thread/thread/bdcad26ab044cb96
    5  * http://www.b-list.org/weblog/2008/sep/07/slides/ and http://media.b-list.org/presentations/2008/djangocon/reusable_apps.pdf
    6 
    7 = Guidelines for reusable application authors =
    8 
    9  * '''namespace''': apps should live in `django.apps`, i.e. if your app is named `frobnicate`, your code should be in `django.apps.frobnicate`
    10   * FIXME alternative: require use of namespace packages, see http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/setuptools#namespace-packages , review how Zope does it
    11  * FIXME '''Django version''': somehow the Django version used has to be conveyed (`django1.0-comments`?), again Zope app versioning should help
    12  * '''publishing''': apps should be packaged with `setuptools` and published in the [http://pypi.python.org/pypi Python Package Index], under trove category `Framework :: Django`
    13  * '''dependencies''': ordinary `setuptools` dependency handling
    14 
    15 = Package index =
    16 
    17 Additionally to the PyPi index, a separate indexing service with ratings, groupings and whatnot would be useful. [http://djangoplugables.com Django Pluggables] is a nice start.
