Simple facebox modal for Django

Project description


This is a [Django]( integration of [Facebox](

[![Latest Release](](

## Installation

$ pip install django-facebox

### External dependencies

* jQuery - This is not included in the package since it is expected that in most scenarios this would already be available.

## Setup

Add `facebox` to `INSTALLED_APPS`:


Be sure you have the `django.core.context_processors.request` processor


and just include `facebox` templates

{% include "facebox/facebox_css.html" %} {# Before the closing head tag #}
{% include "facebox/facebox_js.html" %} %} {# Before the closing body tag #}

When deploying on production server, don't forget to run :

$ python collectstatic

## Usage

Extend base template for ajax requests

{% extends request.is_ajax|yesno:"facebox/base.html,base.html" %}

Add `rel="facebox"` to a link, and set the href to a page you want to display

<a href="{% url 'remote.html' %}" rel="facebox">Click here</a>

Please see `example` application. This application is used to manually test the functionalities of this package. This also serves as a good example.

You need only Django 1.4 or above to run that. It might run on older versions but that is not tested.

## License

`django-facebox` is released under the BSD license.
