Efficient django template blocks implementation

Project description

Django-cmstemplates is efficient templates-in-db implementation.

Python 2.7, 3.x pypi Travis Build coverage MIT License

Application is aimed to support python 3.4+ and django 1.9+.


  1. Template blocks can be edited in your admin

  2. Django’s cache machinery is actively used

  3. Template group autocreation (if group is not exist)

  4. Codemirror widget support

  5. Ability to view template only for superuser, useful when editing in production.


  1. Add cmstemplates to INSTALLED_APPS

  2. Run ./ migrate cmstemplates

  3. Go to admin and create new group template with name test-group You can skip this step for now, if you want template to be auto-created.

  4. Add this group to your template with following tag:

    {% load cmstemplates_tags %}
    {% cms_group "test-group" %}

    If you skipped step three, then template group test-group will be created automatically.

  5. Create some templates for this group in admin.

  6. Refresh target site page and see your templates content.
