Project description

wagtail-commonmark: CommonMark fields and blocks for Wagtail

Tired of annoying rich text editors getting in the way of your content input? Wish Wagtail worked more like a wiki? Well, now it can.

wagtail-commonmark provides CommonMark field support for Wagtail. Specifically, it provides:

  • A wagtailcommonmark.blocks.CommonMarkBlock for use in streamfields.
  • A wagtailcommonmark.fields.CommonMarkField for use in page models.
  • A wagtailcommonmark.edit_handlers.CommonMarkPanel for use in the editor interface.
  • A wagtailcommonmark.jinja2tags.commonmark extension for use in jinja2 templates.
  • A commonmark template tag.


Alpha release is available on Pypi - - installable via pip install wagtail-commonmark.

Using it



Use it as a StreamField block:

from wagtailcommonmark.blocks import CommonMarkBlock

class MyStreamBlock(StreamBlock):
    markdown = CommonMarkBlock(icon="code")

Or use as a page field:

from wagtailcommonmark.edit_handlers import CommonMarkPanel
from wagtailcommonmark.fields import CommonMarkField

class MyPage(Page):
    body = CommonMarkField()

    content_panels = [
        FieldPanel("title", classname="full title"),

And render the content in a template:
