Django model based search for Django CMS

Project description

Django model based search for Django CMS

PyPI_Version Build_Status Coverage_Status

The reason I created this was simply to avoid the overhead of using third party applications such as haystack. I was deploying an app on Amazons Elastic Beanstalk that will run on one or more instance and did not want the hassle of trying to save the index results in a centralized storage. I also did not want another instance just to act as a search endpoint like solr etc.

Doing it this way by saving the results in the database makes it extremely portable.

On publishing a page, an index item is added to the model. On unpublishing or deleting its removed.


Installation with pip:

$ pip install djangocms-site-search


Add the following apps to the INSTALLED_APPS ensuring its below cms:


Add the url routes to the project in

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^', include('site_search.urls', 'search')),


Please head over to our documentation for all the details on how to install and use the django CMS site search.
