Django FlatContent is intended as a flatpages-like app but for smaller chunks of content that can be edited in the Django admin.

Features

  • Simple FlatContent model
  • Template tag for pulling FlatContent into templates
  • Template rendering of flatcontent items
  • Caching of FlatContent for performance

Installation

  1. pip install flatcontent.
  2. Add flatcontent to your INSTALLED_APPS.
  3. Run the command manage.py migrate to install the models.

Usage

Once content is available in the FlatContent model, it can be accessed via the templates using the provided template tags:

{% load flatcontent_tags %}
<div id="footer">
    {% flatcontent footer %}
</div>

The above will perform a slug lookup on the text “footer” and return the content associated with that slug.

You can also put the content into a template variable for passing to other template tags or filters. For example, getting the footer and processing the text through the textile filter:

{% load flatcontent_tags markup %}
<div id="footer">
    {% flatcontent footer as content %}
    {{ content|textile }}
</div>

Add context for flatcontent rendering using the with keyword. For example, if you have a flatcontent item with the content Homer {{ last_name }}, you could use the following in your django template to achieve Homer Simpson as the output:

{% load flatcontent_tags %}
{% flatcontent homer-simpson with last_name='Simpson' %}
