django-scribbler is an application for managing snippets of text for a Django website.

Project Description

django-scribbler is an application for managing snippets of text for a Django website. Similar projects include django-flatblocks, django-chunks and django-pagelets. This project attempts to take some of the best concepts from those previous projects as well as focus on giving the users instant feedback inspired by Bret Victor’s Inventing on Principle talk.


  • Simple template tag for defining snippet blocks with default text
  • Template tag for displaying and editing fields from arbitrary models
  • Front-end editing of snippets with the powerful CodeMirror editor
  • Live in-place preview of content while editing
  • The full power of the Django template language in the snippet blocks
  • Experimental Python 3 support

A very simple demo site is available at (username: demo password: demo)


django-scribbler requires Django >= 1.3 and Python >= 2.6. Starting with version v0.2 there will be experimental Python 3 support (3.2+). Using Python 3 requires using the in-development version of Django (1.5dev).

To install from PyPi:

pip install django-scribbler
