Update:

Django AdMob pluggable app on github.

Given a Django request object and dict of admob parameters returns a Admob ad.

If no ad can be retrieved displays a one pixel Admob tracker image.

For the future:

  • Make a template tag for this?

  • Filter out other unneeded META parameters for the admob_post dict?

Atilla (on August 19, 2008):

Thanks a lot for this convenient port, I was just about to do the same thing. I've added a couple of more extras, as well as one custom tag to make it more usable and packed it in a standalone django application. If you agree to it, I will host my application somewhere in the open - google code perhaps.

Hey Atilla - please go ahead!

(I'm just thinking about sitting down to code an Admob Analytic Django app)
