Injecting fragments of js, css and html in a django-cms plugin
django-cms-fragments is a plugin for django-cms. With this plugin you can include several fragments of js, css and html in the context of a cms page. Fragments can be added by uploading a file, providing an external url(for js and css), or writing inline code.
The plugin basically adds jss and js to the page, using sekizai tags. It relies on the fact that django-cms requires “js” and “css” blocks to work. The html fragments are rendered within the plugin template.
This package is in an alpha stage, don’t use it in production.
I created the project because i didn’t want to have to modify my cms installation by adding templates or app_hooks for displaying rich visualizations such as Openlayers Maps or jQplot charts. Another use of the plugin is overriding some css in a particular cms page.
Install via pip:
pip install django-cms-fragments
Add ‘cms_fragments’ to your INSTALLED_APPS
Use ‘django.contrib.staticfiles’, or copy the static subfolder of django-cms-fragments to your static folder
TBW A “fragment block is”
TBW Regions must be declared in your settings.py, with the CMS_FRAGMENTS_REGIONS setting.
To use the plugin, you must create some Fragment or FragmentCollection instances with the Django admin. FragmentCollections are a collection of Fragments. Once you have one or more Fragments or FragmentCollections in the DB, you can choose which one to put in a plugin, with the usual django-cms interface. …
