A Django pattern for creating customizable, re-useable email templates. Admins can define a number of standard templates, and these templates are then injected into email forms as default content, which can then be selected from and customized on the fly before being sent.
class EmailTemplate(models.Model):
''' Templates for standard emails. '''
body = models.TextField(verbose_name="The body of the email")
subject = models.CharField(max_length=200, verbose_name="Default Subject Line")
name = models.CharField(max_length=200, verbose_name="Template Name")
creator = models.ForeignKey(User)
