A Django application to manage your images, video links, embeds and slideshows.
pip install django-media-explorer
Add these to your INSTALLED_APPS settings
'rest_framework', 'micawber.contrib.mcdjango', 'media_explorer', 'ckeditor',
Add these to your urls.py
url("^ckeditor/", include("ckeditor.urls")), url("^", include("media_explorer.urls")),
Copy and paste this code into the bottom of your settings.py file.
try: from media_explorer.settings import * except ImportError: pass
The DME application will try to resize your images during your upload. If you do not want to resize your images then set the setting DME_RESIZE = False somewhere in your settings.py file (after the “media_explorer.settings” import).
If you use your own JQuery in your admin pages and you do not want the DME application JQuery to conflict with yours then set DME_INCLUDE_JQUERY = False (since v0.3.6).
Run these migration commands to create your database tables.
python manage.py makemigrations python manage.py migrate
How it works
Add the MediaImageField, MediaField and RichTextField fields to your model.
from django.db import models from media_explorer.fields import MediaImageField, MediaField, RichTextField class Blog(models.Model): """ Example Blog model """ title = models.CharField(max_length=150) #Since v0.3.6 #This behaves exactly as Django's ImageField with following differences: #1) You can add an optional max_upload_size=xxx to limit upload size #2) After image is saved you can see it listed at http://YOUR-DJANGO-SITE-URL/media_explorer #3) If the setting DME_RESIZE = True then image will be resized my_image = MediaImageField(max_upload_size=5242880,upload_to="my_dir") #Since v0.3.0 #If you do not provide a type then media can be image/video/gallery lead_media = MediaField() #Since v0.3.0 #Providing a type will restrict the element to this type video = MediaField(type="video") #Since v0.3.0 #You will see a CKEditor WYSIWYG with DME plugin #NOTE: You cannot use more than one RichText field in a model entry = RichTextField()
After you add media fields to your model you can add data via the admin page (See screenshot - the red-circled button is the DME plugin button. It will allow you to insert media elements into your WYSIWYG)
Go to https://github.com/oxfamamerica/django-media-explorer for more documentation on how to add images, videos and galleries programatically via the API and how to display media in your templates.
Go to https://github.com/oxfamamerica/media_explorer_example to download and run an example blog application.
Run this command to run all the DME tests.
python manage.py test media_explorer.tests
Or you can run the tests individually.
python manage.py test media_explorer.tests.elements.tests python manage.py test media_explorer.tests.galleries.tests python manage.py test media_explorer.tests.customfields.tests
