Allows pluggable WYSIWYG editors in django admin without hard dependencies

Project description


Allows pluggable WYSIWYG editors in django admin without hard dependencies.

Currently supported editors (both optional):


  1. Install with pip:

    pip install django-editor
  2. (optional) Add imperavi or tinymce to your INSTALLED_APPS in

        # Imperavi (or tinymce) rich text editor is optional


editor package gives you the following replacement classes:

  • django.forms.widgets.Textarea => editor.EditorWidget (becomes ImperaviWidget or TinyMCE)
  • django.contrib.admin.ModelAdmin => editor.EditorAdmin (becomes ImperaviAdmin or stays as ModelAdmin)
  • django.contrib.admin.StackedInline => editor.EditorStackedInline (becomes ImperaviStackedInline or stays as StackedInline)

Here are some examples on how to easily turn your Textareas into WYSIWYG editors:

from django.db import models
from django.contrib import admin
from editor.admin import EditorAdmin, EditorWidget, EditorStackedInline

class MyInlineAdmin(EditorStackedInline): # StackedInline example
    model = Model1

class MyModel2Admin(EditorAdmin): # ModelAdmin example
    inlines = [MyInlineAdmin], MyModel2Admin)

class MyModel3Admin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    formfield_overrides = {
        models.TextField: {'widget': EditorWidget},
    }, MyModel3Admin)
