apidev-coop_cms 1.0.4

Small CMS built around a tree navigation open to any django models

Latest Version: 1.0.16

Coop-cms, a really pluggable CMS

Yet another CMS ?

  1. Coop-cms is built around Articles. It defines a basic abstract model so you can define your own model.
  2. It has a website tree in a nice admin widget, to let you order Articles and any other standard django model you’ve defined in your project.
  3. Based on the tree, you get templatetags for menu navigation, siblings links, breadcrumb, etc

Coop-cms has some sister apps to make it more usable:

  • coop_bar, an extensible toolbar (same concept : any app you create can add links in the toolbar)
  • djaloha, a great in-site editor based on Aloha Editor
  • colorbox, make easy integration of jquery colorbox library.

Quick start

Python 2.6+, Django 1.4+ required

Install it with pip install coop-cms

urls.py

At the very end of your urls.py file, add:

urlpatterns += patterns('',
    (r'^djaloha/', include('djaloha.urls')),
    (r'^', include('coop_cms.urls')),
    (r'^coop_bar/', include('coop_bar.urls')),
)

Please note that coop-cms will handle any page slug, except the ones you will have defined before.

Base template

You need to create a base template base.html in one of your template folders. The article.html will inherit from this base template.

You need the following templatetags libs:

{% load coop_navigation coop_bar_tags %}

In the <head> of the document:

{% coop_bar_headers %}
{% block jquery_declaration %}{% endblock %}
{% block extra_head %}{% endblock %}

In the <body> of the document:

{% block document %}...{% endblock %}
{% coop_bar %}

Just before </body> at the end of the document:

{% coop_bar_footer %}

You can also put some navigations in the <body>:

{% navigation_as_nested_ul %}
The navigation_as_nested_ul templatetag accepts several args
  • tree=”english” –> The name of the navigation_tree to use. “default” if missing
  • li_template=”dropdown_li.html” –> a template for every <li> tags
  • ul_template=”dropdown_ul.html” –> a template for every <ul> tags
  • li_args=”dropdown_li_class.html” —> args to be used for any <li> tags

There are others templatetags for navigation : navigation_breadcrumb, navigation_children, navigation_siblings with similar behavior

Going further

You can look at the demo_app in apps folder to see how to customize the behavior of coop_cms:
  • Editable “pieces of HTML” in your page : A editable block that can be shared by several pages.
  • Custom templates for articles and newsletters
  • Custom fields in article
  • Custom admin bar
  • Configuration values

Internationalization

If you want to make an international site, coop_cms works well with django-modeltranslation and django-localeurl.

If you use django-localeurl, we recommend to put the reverse patch at the top of your urls.py

if ‘localeurl’ in settings.INSTALLED_APPS:
#If localeurl is installed : need to patch the django reverse #In order to take lang prefix into account from localeurl.models import patch_reverse patch_reverse()
