A rich text widget using TinyMCE for Dolmen

Project description

dolmen.widget.tinymce is a package that provides a useable and pluggable way to render a text field as a WYSIWG editor in a zeam.form Form.

Example

We are going to develop here a small example, to demonstrate the use of dolmen.widget.tinymce. First, we need to create a model content with a text field:

>>> import grokcore.component as grok
>>> from zope.interface import Interface
>>> from zope.schema import Text
>>> from zope.schema.fieldproperty import FieldProperty

>>> class ICave(Interface):
...   paintings = Text(title=u'Description of the cave paintings')

>>> class Grotto(grok.Context):
...   paintings = FieldProperty(ICave['paintings'])

We have now a model that defines a text field. We want to edit/view this content, using a rich editor, allowing to input rich text and to display it as valid HTML. To do so, we define a form:

>>> from zeam.form.ztk import Form, Fields
>>> class EditCave(Form):
...    grok.name('edit')
...    grok.context(ICave)
...    ignoreContent = False
...    fields = Fields(ICave)
>>> grok.testing.grok_component('edit', EditCave)
True

At this point, if we instanciate the form, we have a normal rendering:

>>> from zope.publisher.browser import TestRequest

>>> homecave = Grotto()
>>> request = TestRequest()

>>> form = EditCave(homecave, request)
>>> form.updateWidgets()

>>> print form.fieldWidgets.get('form.field.paintings').render()
<textarea id="form-field-paintings" name="form.field.paintings" class="field field-text field-required" cols="80" rows="5"></textarea>

To get the tinyMCE widget, you simply need to use the “mode” of the field, to indicate what you want to render:

>>> from dolmen.widget.tinymce import TINYMCE_INPUT

>>> form = EditCave(homecave, request)
>>> form.fields['paintings'].mode = TINYMCE_INPUT
>>> form.updateWidgets()

>>> print form.fieldWidgets.get('form.field.paintings').render()
<script type="text/javascript">
   $(document).ready(function(){
      $('textarea[name="form.field.paintings"]').tinymce();
   });
</script>
<textarea id="form-field-paintings"
          name="form.field.paintings"
          class="field field-text field-required"
          cols="80" rows="5"></textarea>

The modes can be ‘tinymce.input’ for an input widget and ‘tinymce.display’ to display the value as valid html:

>>> from dolmen.widget.tinymce import TINYMCE_DISPLAY
>>> homecave.paintings = u"<h1>Very nice paintings</h1><p>Mammoth</p>"

>>> form = EditCave(homecave, request)
>>> form.fields['paintings'].mode = TINYMCE_DISPLAY
>>> form.updateWidgets()

>>> print form.fieldWidgets.get('form.field.paintings').render()
<div id="form-field-paintings" name="form.field.paintings"
     class="field"><h1>Very nice paintings</h1><p>Mammoth</p></div>
