A simple FeinCMS extension that adds permission-checking to a model.

Project description

A simple FeinCMS extension that adds permission-checking to a model. The model is assumed to be a Page, but it could be any FeinCMS model.


Install using pip:

pip install feincms-pagepermissions

Change your Django settings to include pagepermissions:


Then add the extension to your content type:


If you need to specify arguments for permissions field, i.e. limit_choices_to:

from pagepermissions.extension import ExtensionFactory as PagePermissionExtensionFactory


This will add a permissions field to your content type that you will have to add yourself through syncdb or South or otherwise.

When you edit or add a page you will have the option of setting the permissions required for a user to view that page. You can select multiple permissions, and if the user has any of those they will be able to view the page. Otherwise they will receive a 403.

Finally, you may also want to keep a page out of the navigation if the user has no permission to view it. For this, there is a template filter called check_page_permission. Use it as follows in your template:

{% load feincms_page_tags feincms_pagepermissions_tags %}

{% feincms_nav feincms_page level=1 depth=1 as level1 %}
{% for page in level1 %}
    {% if page|check_page_permission:user %}
       ...display page navigation...
    {% endif %}
{% endfor %}


Your pull requests are very welcome! Please follow the established code style.
