DRF View for django CMS

Project Description


An application to load django CMS pages in a client application.

djangocms-rest-view uses Django REST framework to serve django CMS pages through a REST API

Editing must still be done the “traditional” way


  • pip install djangocms-rest-view


  • Edit

    urlpatterns = [
        url(r'^api/', include('djangocms_rest_view.urls')),
  • That’s all!

The REST view of the pages will be available at

Sample client

A sample Angular JS client is provided within the project.

To start exploring djangocms-rest view, you can install it and browse the website:


  • Edit

    urlpatterns = [
        url(r'^rest/', include('djangocms_rest_view.client.urls')),

the Angular client will be available at


  • Copy dependencies in project bower.json

  • run bower:

    bower install


The sample client uses a dedicated base page to load all the default styles etc needed to render your content. Template is in rest/base.html copy it from djangocms_rest_view/client/templates/rest/base.html and edit it according your needs.


Each django CMS has a defined template to render.

You can customize the template the AngularJS client will use to render the page:

  • create a partial directory in the static directory

  • create html files for each page template

  • define the content of the rest-page template to render the placeholders and page title:

    <article class="body">
      <h2 ng-bind="content_page.title"></h2>
      <p ng-bind-html="content_page.placeholders.content | safe"></p>

    content_page is the page serialization in the angular scope and contains the full serialization as visible at<page-id>; thus content_page.placeholders.content contains the rendered HTML for the content placeholder.
