Application that provides EDItEUR Thema categories, and translations for the headers.

Project Description


A Django application that provides EDItEUR Thema categories. It supplies translation to all languages EDItEUR supports, so if you are using Django’s internationalization in your project you will also get translation.


This application requires:



Install the application from Pypi:

$ pip install django-thema

Add the application to your Django project:


Migrate the application

$ ./ thema

You should populate the model with the data in EDItEUR database, for this use the command populate_thema_categories

$ ./ populate_thema_categories

Also, please make sure the tests passed smoothly

$ ./ test thema

If any test fails, then you could end up with missing data in your database or malfunction of the application.

How it works

django-thema offers a model ThemaCategory, each instance is a Thema category. The model looks like:

class ThemaCategory(models.Model):
    """Model that represents the Thema categories.

    The field `header` contains the heading in English.
    code: The code of the Thema category,
    header: The heading of the Thema category (description),
    parent: A ForeignKey to the parent category.

    def local_header(self):
        """Return the header translated to the activated language."""
        return _(self.header)

The content of header is in English, but you can get its translation to your local language using the property ThemaCategory.local_header. To see all supported languages check Supported Languages section.

>>> from thema.models import ThemaCategory
>>> thema_aba = ThemaCategory.objects.get(code='ABA')
>>> thema_aba.header
'Theory of art'

Getting translation:

>>> from django.utils.translation import activate
>>> activate('es')
>>> thema_aba.local_header
'Teoría del arte'
>>> activate('da')
>>> thema_aba.local_header

Note: the translation will work only if you have enabled `Django’s internationalization <>`__ in your project.

Getting the parent category:

>>> thema_aba.parent
<ThemaCategory: AB>
