Snippets embedder for Wagtail RichTextField.

Project Description


![Wagtailembedder scnreenshot](

Snippets embedder for Wagtail RichTextField.

# Quickstart

Install the package with ``` $ pip install wagtailembedder```

Add `wagtailembedder` to your `` in the `INSTALLED_APPS` section:


For each models registered as a wagtail.wagtailsnippets create an html file to render the template inside a RichText field.

* Templates names will match snippets models names replacing capital letters with underscores, Wagtail style.
For the ```SocialMediaLink``` snippet in the ```core``` app, it will look for the following template ```core/templates/snippets/socialmedialink.html```.
* The variable containing the snippet instance in the template is ```snippet```.

If no template is defined then an exception will be raised in the frontend when rendering a RichTextField with the embedded snippet in it. Make sure you write some templates for your snippets before start to embedding them.

# Options

If the snippet meta has a description field, it will show up next to the snippet name in the admin interface.

from django.db import models
import django.db.models.options as options

options.DEFAULT_NAMES = options.DEFAULT_NAMES + ('description',)

class MySnippet(models.Model):
# fields definition

class Meta:
description = "My Snippet Description"
