About django-simple-friends

I started developing django-simple-friends when I needed a simple app that handles friendships for my project. django-friends of Pinax was mature and well written but it was also handling contacts and invitations. So I decided to create my own app and steal some ideas from django-friends.

  • Only the relationships between registered users are managed.
  • Friending with double confirmation. When a user adds another user as a friend, only when the other user accepts or tries to add the first user as a friend, the friendship relationship is created.
  • Blocking is possible.
