Trix rich text editor widget for Django

Project description

Trix rich text editor widget for Django.

Uses Trix 0.9.

Using django-trix

django-trix includes both a form widget and a model admin mixin that enables the rich text editor.

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.
