Django form widget library for using CodeMirror on Textarea


sudo pip install django-codemirror-widget


sudo pip install git+git://

How to Use

  1. First, you need to specified CODEMIRROR_PATH on CODEMIRROR_PATH is the URI of CodeMirror directory like CODEMIRROR_PATH = r"javascript/codemirror". If you don’t specify it, it defaults to 'codemirror'. CodeMirror should be put there.

  2. Use codemirror.CodeMirrorTextarea widget for target Textarea like below:

    from django import forms
    from codemirror import CodeMirrorTextarea
    codemirror_widget = CodeMirrorTextarea(mode="python", theme="cobalt", config={ 'fixedGutter': True })
    document = forms.TextField(widget=codemirror_widget)


the URI of CodeMirror directory (your CodeMirror installation should live in {{ STATIC_URL }}/{{ CODEMIRROR_PATH }})
the default mode which may be a string or configuration map (DEFAULT: ‘javascript’)
the default theme applied (DEFAULT: ‘default’)
base mapping for the rest of the CodeMirror options (DEFAULT: { 'lineNumbers': True })
A format string interpolated with the form field name to name a global JS variable that will hold the CodeMirror editor object. For example with CODEMIRROR_JS_VAR_FORMAT = "%s_editor" and a field named ‘code’, the JS variable name would be ‘code_editor’. If CODEMIRROR_JS_VAR_FORMAT is None, no global variable is created (DEFAULT: None)
