Use the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor for your form textareas.

Project description

tinymce is a Django application that contains a widget to render a form field as a TinyMCE editor.

Features: - Use as a form widget or with a view. - Enhanced support for content languages. - Integration with the TinyMCE spellchecker. - Enables predefined link and image lists for dialogs. - Can compress the TinyMCE Javascript code. - Integration with django-filebrowser.

The tinymce code is licensed under the MIT License. See the LICENSE.txt file in the distribution. Note that the TinyMCE editor is distributed under its own license.


Django 1.3+ is required. For Django < 1.3 please check out django-tinymce 1.5.1.


1. Place the tinymce module in your Python path. You can put it into your Django project directory or run python install from a shell. 2. Copy the jscripts/tiny_mce directory from the TinyMCE distribution into a directory named js in your static root. You can override the location in your settings (see below). 3. If you want to use any of the views add tinymce your installed applications list and URLconf:


urlpatterns = patterns('',
    (r'^tinymce/', include('tinymce.urls')),


The application can be configured by editing the project’s file.

TINYMCE_JS_URL (default: settings.STATIC_URL + 'js/tiny_mce/tiny_mce.js')

The URL of the TinyMCE javascript file.

TINYMCE_JS_ROOT (default: settings.STATIC_ROOT + 'js/tiny_mce')

The filesystem location of the TinyMCE files.

TINYMCE_DEFAULT_CONFIG (default: {'theme': "simple", 'relative_urls': False})

The default TinyMCE configuration to use. See the TinyMCE manual for all options. To set the configuration for a specific TinyMCE editor, see the mce_attrs parameter for the widget.


Whether to use the spell checker through the supplied view. You must add spellchecker to the TinyMCE plugin list yourself, it is not added automatically.


Whether to use the TinyMCE compressor, which gzips all Javascript files into a single stream. This makes the overall download size 75% smaller and also reduces the number of requests. The overall initialization time for TinyMCE will be reduced dramatically if you use this option.

TINYMCE_FILEBROWSER (default: True if 'filebrowser' is in INSTALLED_APPS, else False)

Whether to use django-filebrowser as a custom filebrowser for media inclusion. See the official TinyMCE documentation on custom filebrowsers.
