Project description

Wagtailmedium is a Medium Editor integration for the Wagtail CMS.

Note: A more detailed documentation is available in .codestory format, along with a sample project to fiddle with.


  1. Install from pip:

    pip install django-wagtailmedium
  2. Add wagtailmedium to your apps:


3. Add a wagtailmedium widget to ``WAGTAILADMIN_RICH_TEXT_EDITORS`` (implemented by wagtail, undocumented yet)

     'default': {
         'WIDGET': 'wagtail.wagtailadmin.rich_text.HalloRichTextArea'
     'medium': {
         'WIDGET': 'wagtailmedium.rich_text.MediumRichTextArea',
         'OPTIONS': {
             'custom_buttons': {
                 'code': {
                   'contentDefault': '<b>Code</b>',
                   'contentFA': '<i class="fa fa-code"></i>',
                   'tag': 'code',
                   'className': 'code',  # optional
                 'test': {
                     'contentDefault': '<b>Test</b>',
                     'contentFA': '<i class="fa fa-code"></i>',
                     'tag': 'span',
                     'className': 'test',  # optional
             'medium': {  #
                 # 'buttonLabels': 'fontawesome',
                 'toolbar': {
                     'buttons': [  #
                         'bold', 'italic', 'underline',
                         'h2', 'h3', 'orderedlist', 'unorderedlist', 'strikethrough'
  1. Register whitelister element rules

This wagtail hook defines which HTML elements are allowed in rich text areas.

from wagtail.wagtailcore import hooks
from wagtail.wagtailcore.whitelist import attribute_rule, allow_without_attributes

@hooks.register('construct_whitelister_element_rules')  # #7bFcf#
def whitelister_element_rules():
    return {
        'u': allow_without_attributes,
        'span': attribute_rule({'class': True}),
        'code': allow_without_attributes,
        'blockquote': allow_without_attributes,
  1. Use wagtailmedium in a RichTextField of your model

from wagtail.wagtailcore.models import Page, StreamField, RichTextField

class HomePage(Page):
    # a default, Hallo editor
    hallo = RichTextField(blank=True)
    # a medium editor
    medium = RichTextField(editor='medium', blank=True)
