Installation and Setup

  1. django-pagelets is available on PyPI, so the easiest way to install it is to use pip:

    pip install django-pagelets
  2. Add pagelets, selectable and taggit to INSTALLED_APPS in and run migrate:

  3. Make sure django.template.context_processors.request is loaded and that you have a template directory with a “base.html” template in it:

            'DIRS': ['/home/user/projects/myproject/templates'], # <- should have 'base.html' inside
            'OPTIONS': {
                'context_processors': [
  4. Add the pagelets URLs to, e.g.:

    urlpatterns += [
        path('selectable/', include('selectable.urls')),
        path('pagelets-management/', include('')),
        path('/', include('pagelets.urls.content')),
  5. Visit the admin site, add and save a new page, and click the View on site link. If everything is setup correctly, you should be able to see and edit the content you just added.
