Django admin CKEditor integration.

Project Description

Django CKEditor

Django admin CKEditor integration.

Provides a RichTextField and CKEditorWidget utilizing CKEditor with image upload and browsing support included.

Installation

  1. Install or add django-ckeditor to your python path.

  2. Add ckeditor to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.

  3. Copy the media/ckeditor directory into any directory within your media root. You can override the location in your settings (see below).

  4. Add a CKEDITOR_UPLOAD_PATH setting to the project’s settings.py file. This setting specifies an absolute path to your ckeditor media upload directory. Make sure you have write permissions for the path, i.e.:

    CKEDITOR_UPLOAD_PATH = "/home/media/media.lawrence.com/uploads"
    
  5. Add ckeditor url include to the project’s urls.py file:

    (r'^ckeditor/', include('ckeditor.urls')),
    
  6. Optionally, set the CKEDITOR_RESTRICT_BY_USER setting to True in the project’s settings.py file (default False). This restricts access to uploaded images to the uploading user (e.g. each user only sees and uploads their own images). Superusers can still see all images. NOTE: This restriction is only enforced within the CKEditor media browser.

  7. Optionally, add a CKEDITOR_UPLOAD_PREFIX setting to the project’s settings.py file. This setting specifies a URL prefix to media uploaded through ckeditor, i.e.:

    CKEDITOR_UPLOAD_PREFIX = "http://media.lawrence.com/media/ckuploads/
    

    (If CKEDITOR_UPLOAD_PREFIX is not provided, the media URL will fall back to MEDIA_URL with the difference of MEDIA_ROOT and the uploaded resource’s full path and filename appended.)

  8. Optionally, add CKEDITOR_CONFIGS setting to the project’s settings.py file. This specifies sets of CKEditor settings that are passed to CKEditor (see CKEditor’s Setting Configurations), i.e.:

    CKEDITOR_CONFIGS = {
        'awesome_ckeditor': {
            'toolbar': 'Basic',
        },
    }
    

    The name of the settings can be referenced when instantiating a RichTextField:

    content = RichTextField(config_name='awesome_ckeditor')
    

    The name of the settings can be referenced when instantiating a CKEditorWidget:

    widget = CKEditorWidget(config_name='awesome_ckeditor')
    

    By specifying a set named default you’ll be applying its settings to all RichTextField and CKEditorWidget objects for which config_name has not been explicitly defined

    CKEDITOR_CONFIGS = {
        'default': {
            'toolbar': 'Full',
            'height': 300,
            'width': 300,
        },
    }
    

Usage

Field

The quickest way to add rich text editing capabilities to your models is to use the included RichTextField model field type. A CKEditor widget is rendered as the form field but in all other regards the field behaves as the standard Django TextField. For example:

from django.db import models
from ckeditor.fields import RichTextField

class Post(models.Model):
    content = RichTextField()

Widget

Alernatively you can use the included CKEditorWidget as the widget for a formfield. For example:

from django import forms
from django.contrib import admin
from ckeditor.widgets import CKEditorWidget

from post.models import Post

class PostAdminForm(forms.ModelForm):
    content = forms.CharField(widget=CKEditorWidget())
    class Meta:
        model = Post

class PostAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    form = PostAdminForm

admin.site.register(Post, PostAdmin)

NOTE: If you’re using custom views remember to include ckeditor.js in your form’s media either through {{ form.media }} or through a <script> tag. Admin will do this for you automatically. See Django’s Form Media docs for more info. AUTHORS =======
