Injecting fragments of js, css and html in a django-cms plugin

Project description

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 will hopefully provide a more stable version very soon.

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.

Implemented Features

current version:0.0.2

  • FragmentCollection and Fragment models, with admin integration
  • FragmentPlugin and FragmentCollectionPlugin for django-cms
  • css fragments from files, url or inline code
  • js fragments from files, url or inline code
  • html fragments from files or inline code
  • integration with EditArea by Christophe Dolivet
  • ordering of elements in a FragmentCollection

RoadMap/Planned Features

planned version:0.1.0

  • example fixtures for FragmentCollection and Fragment models
  • live examples
  • drag and drop ordering in admin
  • better integration of EditArea
  • write docs


  • 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


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. …


The app is being developed for Django >= 1.3.1. I’m not checking compatibility with other Django versions right now.
