Style Plugin for django CMS

Project description

Aldryn Style provides a plugin that wraps other plugins in CSS styling, by placing a class name on a containing element.


This plugin requires django CMS 2.4 or higher to be properly installed.

  • Within your virtualenv run pip install aldryn-style
  • Add 'aldryn_style' to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.
  • Run migrate aldryn_style.


You can define styles and tag-types in your

# define this lambda if it isn't already defined in your settings...
_ = lambda s: s

    ('info', _('info')),
    ('new', _('new')),
    ('hint', _('hint')),

    'div', 'p', 'span', 'article', 'section', 'header', 'footer',

By default, if ALDRYN_STYLE_ALLOWED_TAGS is not supplied, or contains an empty list, then it will default to the following list for backwards compatibility with previous versions:

    'div', 'article', 'section', 'p', 'span',
    'h1', 'h2', 'h3', 'h4', 'h5', 'h6',
    'header', 'footer',


All tags included in this list should be "paired tags" that require a
closing tag. It does not make sense to attempt to use 'button', 'input',
'img', or other self-closing tag in this setting.

Also, the developer is advised to choose the tag-types wisely to avoid HTML
validation issues and/or unintentional security vulnerabilities. For
example, the 'script' tag should never be allowed in
``ALDRYN_STYLE_ALLOWED_TAGS`` (though, we do not prevent this). If you have
an application where you find yourself wishing to do this, please see
djangocms-snippet or aldryn-snippet as an alternative, but note these
projects also come with appropriate security warnings.

After that you can place any number of other plugins inside this style plugin. It will create a div (or other tag-type) with a class that was prior selected around the contained plugins.
