https://secure.travis-ci.org/itbabu/cmsplugin-googleplus.png?branch=master Coverage

  5. Select API Access and get the API key

  6. Add the API key to your settings.py:



Fresh install
python manage.py syncdb --all
python manage.py migrate --fake

The first command will prompt you to create a super user. Choose ‘yes’ and enter appropriate values.

How to use it

An activity is a note that a user posts to their stream. You can list a collection of activities from one user or you can list a collection of activities as result of a search.


This plugin has an example template that uses Twitter Bootstrap 3. You can use it as skeleton for you templates.

Create your template and inside settings.py add:

     _('Example Template using Twitter Bootstrap')),
     _('My beautiful template'))


The activities are cached so you need to:

  1. Set up your cache system

  2. (Optional) Decide the activities cache duration. Default is 5 minutes. Inside settings.py add:

    GOOGLEPLUS_PLUGIN_CACHE_DURATION = <custom cache duration>

The actual quota limits for the google+ api are 10,000 requests/day


Run the test with coverage
$ coverage run runtests.py && coverage report -m


This is how the plugin looks with the example template.


Have Fun!
