## Usage

### Edit fields in the model using Markdown

Using Markdown to edit the fields in the model, we simply replace the `TextField` of the model with` MDTextField`.

from django.db import models
from mdeditor.fields import MDTextField

class ExampleModel (models.Model):
    name = models.CharField (max_length = 10)
    content = MDTextField ()

Admin in the background, will automatically display markdown edit rich text.

Used in front-end template, you can use like this:
{% load staticfiles%}
<! DOCTYPE html>
<html lang = "en">
        <meta http-equiv = "Content-Type" content = "text / html; charset = utf-8" />

    </ head>
        <form method = "post" action = "./">
            {% csrf_token%}
            <p> <input type = "submit" value = "post"> </ p>
        </ form>
    </ body>
</ html>


### Edit fields in the Form using markdown

Use markdown to edit fields in the Form, use `MDTextFormField` instead of` forms.CharField`, as follows:
from mdeditor.fields import MDTextFormField

class MDEditorForm (forms.Form):
    name = forms.CharField ()
    content = MDTextFormField ()

`ModelForm` can automatically convert the corresponding model field to the form field, which can be used normally:
class MDEditorModleForm (forms.ModelForm):

    class Meta:
        model = ExampleModel
        fields = '__all__'

### Use the markdown widget in admin

Use the markdown widget in admin like as :
from django.contrib import admin
from django.db import models

# Register your models here.
from. import models as demo_models
from mdeditor.widgets import MDEditorWidget

class ExampleModelAdmin (admin.ModelAdmin):
    formfield_overrides = {
        models.TextField: {'widget': MDEditorWidget}
    } (demo_models.ExampleModel, ExampleModelAdmin)
### Customize the toolbar

Add the following configuration to `settings`:
'width': '90% ', # Custom edit box width
    'heigth': 500, # Custom edit box height
    'toolbar': ["undo", "redo", "|",
                "bold", "del", "italic", "quote", "ucwords", "uppercase", "lowercase", "|",
                "h1", "h2", "h3", "h5", "h6", "|",
                "list-ul", "list-ol", "hr", "|",
                "link", "reference-link", "image", "code", "preformatted-text", "code-block", "table", "datetime"
                "emoji", "html-entities", "pagebreak", "goto-line", "|",
                "help", "info",
                "||", "preview", "watch", "fullscreen"], # custom edit box toolbar
    'upload_image_formats': ["jpg", "jpeg", "gif", "png", "bmp", "webp"], # image upload format type
    'image_floder': 'editor', # image save the folder name
    'theme': 'default', # edit box theme, dark / default
    'preview_theme': 'default', # Preview area theme, dark / default
    'editor_theme': 'default', # edit area theme, pastel-on-dark / default
