Djangocms plugin for masonry

Project description

djangocms-masonry is a reuseable plugin for django-cms that implements the JavaScript Masonry library.


  • Djangocms>=3.0
  • Django>=1.6


Install djangocms-masonry from Pypi.

pip install djangocms-masonry

Add Djangocms_masonry to INSTALLED_APPS


Django 1.6 and/or South users will need to add the following to ensure migration compatibility.

    'djangocms_masonry': 'djangocms_masonry.south_migrations',


CSS classes can be added to the plugin via a select box by using the DJANGOCMS_MASONRY_STYLES settings tuple.

    ('style1', 'Style 1'),
    ('style2', 'Style 2'),

djangocms_masonry/default.html is rendered by default. The user can select custom templates if the following tuple is set as the example below demonstrates.

    ('template1', 'Template 1'),
    ('template2', 'Template 2'),

Restrict the plugins available to Masonry Carousel


Include or exclude static files



base.html includes all the JavaScript and CSS needed to run the masonry plugin, but it does not render the HTML. Custom templates can extend base.html as long as they define a plugin block containing the html and plugin render code as show in the below example.

{% extends 'djangocms_masonry/base.html' %}
{% load cms_tags %}

{% block plugin %}
  <div class="masonry-plugin plugin{% if style %} {{ style }}{% endif %}" id="plugin-{{ }}">
    <div class="row">
      <div class="small-12 columns">

        <div class="masonry-grid">
          <div class="grid-sizer"></div>
          <div class="gutter-sizer"></div>
          {% for plugin in instance.child_plugin_instances %}
            <div class="grid-item">
              {% render_plugin plugin %}
          {% endfor %}

{% endblock plugin %}
