Noodles is an app containing all sorts of miscellaneous bits of code that I see to use across projects.
There aren't really any connecting dots or common design patterns. It's just stuff I use.
First, install with pip (for the time being, noodles is only available directly from github):
pip install git+https://github.com/Brant/django-noodles.git@master
Or, as part of a requirements.txt file:
# requirements.txt git+https://github.com/Brant/django-noodles.git@master
Then, add noodles to your installed apps:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'noodles', )
The remaining documentation goes through individual noodles. Each is separate from the others - you can pick and choose which things to use.
