New port: www/py-django-common-helpers

py-django-common-helpers consists of the following things:

  • Middleware that makes sure a web-app runs either on or without "www" in the domain.
  • "SessionManagerBase" base class, that helps in keeping session related code object-oriented and clean.
  • "EmailBackend" for authenticating users based on their email, apart from username.
  • Custom db fields that can be used in models including a "UniqueHashField" and "RandomHashField".
  • Bunch of helpful functions in helper.py
  • "render_form_field" template tag that makes rendering form fields easy and DRY.
  • Couple of dry response classes: "JsonResponse" and "XMLResponse" in the django_common.http that can be used in views that give json/xml responses.
