Create and display maps with points in Wagtail

Project description


Create and display maps with points in Wagtail.

Warning! This project is still early on in its development lifecycle. It is possible for breaking changes to occur between versions until reaching a stable 1.0. Feedback and pull requests are welcome.

This package extend Wagtail to add a new Map model, which is composed by one or more points. Each point may have a title, some content and link to an internal or external URL. Once you have configured your map from the Wagtail admin, you will be able to display it in a page - e.g. as a StreamField block.


This package requires the following:

  • Wagtail >= 2.14: upstream patches have been submitted to provide a proper integration of this extension into the admin - see #7562, #7565 and #7590
  • Django (3.1, 3.2)
  • Python 3 (3.7, 3.8, 3.9)


  1. Install using pip:
    pip install wagtail-maps
  2. Add wagtail_maps to your INSTALLED_APPS setting:
        # ...
        # ...
  3. Include the URL of wagtail-maps to your file:
    from wagtail_maps import urls as wagtailmaps_urls
    urlpatterns = [
        # ...
        path('maps/', include(wagtailmaps_urls)),
        # ...
  4. Run python migrate to create the models


A StreamField block wagtail_maps.blocks.MapBlock can be used to display a map - choosen from the current ones - in your page. The JavaScript code and the Leaflet package is currently not shipped, but you can find an example in examples/frontend/.


Quick start

To set up a development environment, ensure that Python 3 is installed on your system. Then:

  1. Clone this repository
  2. Create a virtual environment and activate it:
    python3 -m venv venv
    source venv/bin/activate
  3. Install this package in develop mode with extra requirements:
    pip install -e .[test]


The Python code is formatted and linted thanks to flake8, isort and black. To ease the use of this tools, the following commands are available:

  • make lint: check the Python code syntax and imports order
  • make format: fix the Python code syntax and imports order

The tests are written with pytest and code coverage is measured with coverage. You can use the following commands for that:

  • make test: run the tests and output a quick report of code coverage
  • make coverage: run the tests and produce an HTML report of code coverage

When submitting a pull-request, please ensure that the code is well formatted and covered, and that all the other tests pass.


This extension is mainly developed by Cliss XXI and licensed under the AGPLv3+. Any contribution is welcome!
