=============

django-ticker

django-ticker is a reusable Django_ application that provides a ticker like news section including row level permissions. What does this mean?

In django-ticker you have a fine grained permission control what the (administrative) user can do and what not. Besides the default Django permissions -- add, change, delete -- there are some extra permissions:

  • change_foreign
  • publish

Originally this was created for the news section of the German Django community_ where foreign users could add articles but had no permission to publish them, cause a moderator must check these articles first.

It's easy to create a pressroom like workflow, assumed we have different people with different permissions:

The freelance journalist: Granted permissions: add, change

- can add articles
- can change his articles (only his own)
- can not delete his articles
- can set the status of the article to "closed" or "draft". Draft means,
  that the article is ready for check by a moderator.
- in the admin list of articles, they see only they own

The journalist: Granted permissions: add, change, delete, publish

- can add articles
- can change and delete his articles (only his own)
- can set the status of the article to "closed", "draft" or "published"
- in the admin list of articles, they see only their own

The chief editor (or moderator): Granted permissions: add, change, delete, publish, change_foreign

- can add articles
- can change and delete all (!) articles
- can set the status of the article to "closed", "draft" or "published"
- in the admin list of articles, they see all articles

The proofreader (or subject specialist): Granted permissions: change, change_foreign

- can not add articles
- can not delete articles
- can not publish articles
- can change all articles (e.g. for correction)
- in the admin list of articles, they see all articles

So, you can mix these permissions and create a workflow that perfectly fits your needs.
