django-fileman 1.0.3

django-fileman handles user-uploaded static files (images, media, documents) and integrates with tinymce

django-fileman adds user-uploaded static files to the django admin (i.e. images, media, documents) and integrates with tinymce


  • Python 2.7, 3.4 or 3.5
  • Django 1.8+


  1. Download the source from and run python install, or:

    > pip install django-fileman
  2. Add fileman to INSTALLED_APPS

  3. Set FILEMAN_DIRECTORY to a subdirectory of your MEDIA_ROOT (make sure it exists, it won’t be created). Defaults to 'user'

  4. Make sure the django admin is installed correctly


You should now have an “Uploads” section in your django admin which allows you to manage/upload files under your FILEMAN_DIRECTORY.


There are two options for TinyMCE integration. The simplest is to set TinyMCE’s link_list parameter to the url for ‘admin:fileman_link_list’, i.e.

  selector: 'textarea',
  plugins : 'link',
  link_list: '{% url "admin:fileman_link_list" %}',
  toolbar: 'link'

this should work with any modern TinyMCE version (from 3 onwards)

Alternately, set TinyMCE’s file_picker_callback option to integrate with the image, media and link dialogs. For example, in your admin/base_site.html template:

<script type="text/javascript"
        src="{% static 'tinymce/tinymce.min.js' %}"></script>
{% include 'fileman/static.html' %}
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
    selector: 'textarea',
    plugins : 'link media image',
    file_picker_callback: window.fileman.tinymceFilePickerCallback,
    toolbar: 'link media image'

TinyMCE 4.x is required.
