Custom renderer for django form fields

Project description

GoodForms — rails-like renderer for your form fields. Provide fully control of filed styles and attributes. It’s not replacement for django.forms.


Run pip install django-goodforms and add goodforms to INSTALLED_APPS. That’s all.


The view:

from django.shortcuts import render
from django import forms

class MyForm(forms.ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = Client
        fields = '__all__'

def sign_up(request):
    from = MyForm(initial={'gender': 'male'})
    return render(request, 'index.html', {'form': form})

The template:

{% load form_fields %}

<form method="post">{% csrf_token %}
        Your name: {% input placenolder="John Smith" %}
        You gender: {% radio form.gender label="Male" value="male" %}
                    {% radio form.gender label="Female" value="female" %}
    {% submit_button %}


Textfield and Textarea

{% textfield form.title **attrs %}
{% textarea form.description **attrs %}


{% select values="ru:Russia,de:Germany" %}

You can use any dict, iterable collection or queryset as values list:

{% select form.county values=queryset_or_collection value_key="code" label_key="title" %}

Checkbox and radio-button

{% radio form.gender value="female" %}
{% radio form.gender value="male" %}

The label attribute wraps checkbox to <label> tag. All attributes provite to it:

{% checkbox form.agree label="I agree" style="font-weight: bold;" %}

<label style="font-weight: bold;">
    <input type="checkbox" name="agree" value="1"> I agree

Submit button

{% submit_button "Send message" %}
{% submit_button "Save as draft" name="is_draft" value=True %}


You can use any of field without a form class:

{% input "username" required=True %}
{% select "city" values="1:New York, 2:London" %}
