A Django app to add the EpicEditor with easy to use widget.

Project Description

EpicEd is a markdown field with the default widjet using EpicEditor.js

This plugin is made to keep a much as possible the possibilities to overide EpicEditor.js configurations the only settings you’ll not be able to edit are ‘container’ and ‘textarea’ since they are rewriten by the wideget and are needed to save the data to the database.


Since Version 0.3.0 the html escaping of in markdown is now at true by default. If you want to add HTML tags in your content add ‘safe_mode=False’ in the field options. PLEASE becareful with that, do not disable html escaping in public fields.

Quick start

  1. Install django-epiced

    pip install django-epiced
  2. Add it to your installed apps

  3. Use it in your model

    from epiced.models import EpicEditorField
    class Post(models.Model):
        article = EpicEditorField()
  4. Sync your database

    python syncdb
    OR with south ::
    python schemamigration ...
  5. Create an admin page or a form template.

  6. Now you should have the EpicEditor in your admin and/or template.

  7. To display the html version of the text in your template use

    {{ post.article_html|safe }}
  8. Enjoy a markdown editor that won’t break your html!
