A plugin for django-cms that provides just a markdown plugin and nothing more.

Project description

.. contents:: Table of contents

Simple Markdown plugin is just an simple markdown plugin for django-cms.
It's brutally simple. Just a text area and you'll entered some markdown text and save it.
And the reason why i make this is that, I really couldn't find any simple as stupid plugin
for django-cms, all i've found was fancy with a lot of java script stuff.

$ pip install cmsplugin-simple-markdown

Most people says that installation of cmsplugin-simple-markdown is easy, Seems they're out of space.
It's fucking hard to install.

Configuration & Usage

1. Add ``cmsplugin_simple_markdown`` to ``INSTALLED_APPS``.
2. Add ``django.contrib.markup`` to ``INSTALLED_APPS``, if it isn't included already.
3. Create the database tables::

$ python migrate

This is not easy, It's hard, confusing. I doubt, double doubt that those people that keep saying installing this
is easy are on something.

Drama story
Since every application won't begins with love, this plugin developed to solve a problem.
2 days back, I've been using **cms.plugin.text** for handling html pages and related content,
but when I've tried to use aws s3/cloudfront for my static files, i've stuck with ``CORS`` problem.
So i've develop ``cmsplugin-simple-markdown`` to be used without any deps on js/css files.

Now these days, people all around the world are using it, They are happy with it, They go creazy with ``cmsplugin-simple-markdown``,
Even they name their child ``cmsplugin-simple-markdown``, At least I did. ;)
