A markdown field.

Project description

django-markdownfield PyPI

A simple custom field for Django that can safely render Markdown and store it in the database.

Your text is stored in a MarkdownField. When the model is saved, django-markdownfield will parse the Markdown, render it, sanitise it with bleach, and store the result in a RenderedMarkdownField for display to end users.

django-markdownfield also implements the EasyMDE editor in admin views to make working with Markdown easier.

Implementation

Implementing django-markdownfield is simple. See the below example.

from django.db import models

from markdownfield.fields import MarkdownField, RenderedMarkdownField
from markdownfield.validators import VALIDATOR_STANDARD

class Page(models.Model):
    text = MarkdownField(rendered_field='text_rendered', validator=VALIDATOR_STANDARD)
    text_rendered = RenderedMarkdownField()

Please also set SITE_URL in your Django configuration - it will be needed for detecting external links.

SITE_URL = "https://example.com"

To disable the EasyMDE editor, see the amended line below.

text = MarkdownField(rendered_field='text_rendered', use_editor=False, use_admin_editor=True)

Validators

django-markdownfield comes with a number of validators, which are used to process and clean the output of the markdown engine

VALIDATOR_STANDARD

from markdownfield.validators import VALIDATOR_STANDARD

This validator strips any tags that are not used by standard Markdown. It also automatically links any URLs in the output, adding class="external", rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer", and target="_blank" to any URLs which it determines to be external.

VALIDATOR_CLASSY

from markdownfield.validators import VALIDATOR_CLASSY

This validator does much the same as VALIDATOR_STANDARD, but it allows you to set the class on links and images. This is useful to create buttons and other enhanced links.

VALIDATOR_NULL

from markdownfield.validators import VALIDATOR_NULL

This validator does not call bleach to sanitize the output at all. This is not safe for user input. It allows arbitrary (unsafe) HTML in your markdown input.

Creating Custom Validators

To create a custom validator, just create an instance of the markdownfield.validators.Validator dataclass. An example of this is shown below.

from markdownfield.validators import Validator

# allows only bold and italic text
VALIDATOR_COMMENTS = Validator(
    allowed_tags=["b", "i", "strong", "em"],
    allowed_attrs={},
    linkify=False
)

You can also find a standard set of markdown-safe tags and attrs in markdownfield.validators, and extend that.

from markdownfield.validators import Validator, MARKDOWN_TAGS, MARKDOWN_TAGS

# allows all standard markdown features,
# but also allows the class to be set on images and links
VALIDATOR_CLASSY = Validator(
    allowed_tags=MARKDOWN_TAGS,
    allowed_attrs={
        **MARKDOWN_TAGS,
        'img': ['src', 'alt', 'title', 'class'],
        'a': ['href', 'alt', 'title', 'name', 'class']
    }
)
