What is Wagtail CRX?

CRX, formerly known as CodeRed CMS, provides a large set of enhancements and pre-built components for Wagtail which are ready to use out-of-the box! This saves development time and avoids "re-inventing the wheel" by providing features commonly needed by websites:

  • Streamfield blocks and page templates for Bootstrap 5: rows, columns, hero units, carousels, buttons, modals, cards, and more!

  • Settings for adding logo, navigation, footer, and other common elements.

  • Rich set of SEO tagging attributes on each page.

  • Configurable Google Analytics and other tracking.

  • Robust form builder including the ability for multi-step forms, conditional logic, customized confirmation emails, MailChimp integration, and more.

  • Article pages for building blogs, news, etc.

  • Calendar and event pages.

  • Google Maps blocks, and store locator functionality.

  • Dynamic classifier system, for creating filterable categories.

  • Website search functionality, filterable by page type.

  • Style your site using SASS/SCSS directly from Django, without the need for Node.js

Quick start

  1. Run pip install coderedcms

    Note: --sitename and --domain are optional to pre-populate settings of your website.

  3. Enter the project cd mysite/

  4. Run python manage.py migrate to create the core models.

  5. Run python manage.py createsuperuser to create the initial admin user.

  6. Run python manage.py runserver to launch the development server, and go to http://localhost:8000 in your browser, or http://localhost:8000/admin/ to log in with your admin account.

See the documentation for next steps and customizing your new site.
