I have a couple of functions that i wrote that I need to use in my django app. Where would I put the file with them and how would i make them callable whithin my views?
I usually put such app specific helper function in file utils.py and use someting like this
from myapp.utils import my_cool_func def view_coolness(request): data = my_cool_func(request) return render_to_response("xxx.html")
but it depends what you helper does, may be they modify request , the could be part of middleware, so you need to tell what exactly those helper functions do
create a reusable app that include your generic functions so you can share between projects.
use for example a git repo to store this app and manage deployments and evolution (submodule)
use a public git repo so you can share with the community :)
