Trix rich text editor widget for Django

Project description

Trix rich text editor widget for Django, using Trix 0.10.1.

https://circleci.com/gh/istrategylabs/django-trix/tree/master.svg?style=shield

Using django-trix

django-trix includes a form widget, a model field, and a model admin mixin that enables the rich text editor. You can use any of these methods, but you do not need to use all.

Model

To enable the editor in the Django admin (or any form) via the model field, use the Trix model field TrixField which inherits from django.db.models.TextField:

from django.db import models
from trix.fields import TrixField

class Post(models.Model):
    content = TrixField('Content')

Admin

To enable the editor in the Django admin, inherit from TrixAdmin and set the trix_fields attribute to a list of the fields that use an editor:

from myawesomeblogapp.models import Post
from trix.admin import TrixAdmin

@admin.register(Post)
class PostAdmin(TrixAdmin, admin.ModelAdmin):
    trix_fields = ('content',)

Forms and Templates

The editor can be used in forms and templates by adding the TrixEditor widget to a form field:

from django import forms
from trix.widgets import TrixEditor

class EditorForm(forms.Form):
    content = forms.CharField(widget=TrixEditor)

In the template, just use the form as you normally would, but be sure to include the associated media:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <title>Trix Editor Test</title>
        {{ form.media.css }}
    </head>
    <body>
        <form>
            {{ form }}
        </form>
        {{ form.media.js }}
    </body>
</html>

CSS in head, JS at end of body, because you are a responsible developer.
