A reusable Django app to add PDFs to Django-CMS.

Project description

A reusable Django app to add PDFs to Django-CMS.


You need to install the following prerequisites in order to use this app:

pip install Django
pip install django-cms
pip install django-filer
pip install Pillow

If you want to install the latest stable release from PyPi:

$ pip install cmsplugin-pdf

If you feel adventurous and want to install the latest commit from GitHub:

$ pip install -e git://

Add cmsplugin_pdf to your INSTALLED_APPS:



Create a CMS page with a placeholder, upload a pdf file using filer and simply insert the plugin PDF File.

Note that currently the thumbnail size is adjusted only in the template at cmsplugin_pdf/partials/pdf.html.



Use this template filter if you would like to display the page count for a pdf file:

{% load cmsplugin_pdf_tags %}
Pages: {{ pdf_plugin.file.path|get_page_count }}




    ('standard', _('standard')),
    ('small', _('small')),
    ('highlight', _('highlight')),

When using the PDF File plugin in your django-cms placeholders you will notice that you have three choices for the Display type. This field can be helpful when you want to render a file differently in different parts of your site. If you need even more display types, just set this setting to a different list of tuples.


If you want to contribute to this project, please perform the following steps:

# Fork this repository
# Clone your fork
$ mkvirtualenv -p python2.7 cmsplugin-pdf
$ pip install -r test_requirements.txt
$ ./logger/tests/
# You should get no failing tests

$ git co -b feature_branch master
# Implement your feature and tests
# Describe your change in the CHANGELOG.txt
$ git add . && git commit
$ git push origin feature_branch
# Send us a pull request for your feature branch

Whenever you run the tests a coverage output will be generated in tests/coverage/index.html. When adding new features, please make sure that you keep the coverage at 100%.


Check the issue tracker on github for milestones and features to come.
