Filebrowser will now use templates for django suit.

## Suit CKEditor/Redactor
To use filebrowser on [django-suit-ckeditor]( or [django-suit-redactor]( please follow the example bellow:

from django.db import models
from filebrowser.fields import FileBrowseField

class MediaPublication(models.Model):
ckeditor = models.TextField(help_text='Editor CKEditor')
redactor = models.TextField(help_text='Editor Redactor')
image = FileBrowseField("Image", max_length=200, blank=True, null=True)
image_initialdir = FileBrowseField("Image (Initial Directory)", max_length=200, directory="images/", blank=True, null=True)
image_extensions = FileBrowseField("Image (Extensions)", max_length=200, extensions=['.jpg'],
help_text="Only jpg-Images allowed.", blank=True, null=True)
image_format = FileBrowseField("Image (Format)", max_length=200, format='Image', blank=True, null=True)
pdf = FileBrowseField("PDF", max_length=200, directory="documents/", extensions=['.pdf'], format='Document',
blank=True, null=True)

class Meta:
ordering = ['image',]
verbose_name = 'publication'
verbose_name_plural = 'publications'

To use on admin you need to do some litle tweeks:
from django.contrib import admin
from django.forms import ModelForm, Media
from suit_ckeditor.widgets import CKEditorWidget
from suit_redactor.widgets import RedactorWidget

from .models import MediaPublication

class Editor(ModelForm):
class Meta:
widgets = {
'ckeditor': CKEditorWidget(editor_options={'startupFocus': True}),
'redactor': RedactorWidget(editor_options={
'lang': 'en',
'plugins': ['filebrowser']

class Media:
js = ('filebrowser/js/FB_CKEditor.js', 'filebrowser/js/FB_Redactor.js')
css = {
'all': ('filebrowser/css/suit-filebrowser.css',)

class AdminPublication(admin.ModelAdmin):
form = Editor

fieldsets = (
(None, {
'classes': ('suit-tab suit-tab-media',),
'fields': ['image', 'image_initialdir', 'image_extensions', 'image_format', 'pdf'],
('CKEditor', {
'classes': ('full-width',),
'fields': ('ckeditor',)
('Redactor', {
'classes': ('full-width',),
'fields': ('redactor',)

list_display = ('thumbnail', 'image_extensions', 'pdf')
suit_form_tabs = (('media', 'Media'),)

def thumbnail(self, obj):
if obj.image:
return '<img src="%s" />' % obj.image.url_thumbnail
return ""
thumbnail.allow_tags = True, AdminPublication)

The most important things are on ModelForm (Media and Widgets). To use browser on CKEditor and have the button to navigate on filebrowser you only need to add the js file to Media

For Redactor you will have to add the plugin option on the widget (plugin name is mandatory - _filebrowser_ ) and add the css and js file to media.

That's it you are now ready to send all kind of files to ckeditor or redactor.
