Helper for django CMS plugin development

djangocms-helper is a set of commands to handle django CMS plugins development

It's a modified version of django CMS's own ```` script, modified
to handle generic plugins development process.

Common options

* ``--cms``: Loads configuration to properly run a django CMS-based application;
* ``--extra-settings``: Path to a helper file to set extra settings; see
`Customizing settings`_ for details;


The command **must** be executed in the main plugin directory (i.e. in the same
directory as the ```` file) as it needs to import files relative to the
current directory.

The basic command structure is::

djangocms-helper <application> <command> [options ...]

where **<application>** is the django application name and **<command>** is one
of the available commands. Optins vary for each command.


Installing from pip::

pip install djangocms-helper

Installing from source::

pip install git+


* django CMS 3.0 (django CMS 3.0.4 is required for pyflake command)
* docopt
* tox
* dj-database-url


Documentation is available on `readthedocs <>`_.


`djangocms-helper` was written by `Iacopo Spalletti <>`_ with help from
other contributors.


The general logic and part of the code of the whole application is heavily taken from
`django CMS's <`_ own `` so all the contributors
deserve a huge thanks for their work.
