django-froala-editor 0.9.0

django-froala-editor package helps integrate Froala WYSIWYG editor with Django.

Latest Version: 1.2.6

django-froala-editor package helps integrate Froala WYSIWYG editor with Django.

Getting started

  1. Install the package:

    pip install django-froala-editor
    

OR

Add the directory froala_editor from this repo to your Python path.

  1. Add froala_editor to INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py.
  2. Add the following line to urlpatterns in your application’s urls.py.
url(r'^froala_editor/', include('froala_editor.urls')),

Skip this url inclusion if you don’t want image upload inside WYSIWYG editor. Images from URLs can still be embedded.

Usage

from django.db import models
from froala_editor.fields import FroalaField

class Page(models.Model):
    content = FroalaField()

FroalaField uses froala_editor.widgets.FroalaEditor as its widget. You may directly use this widget with any of your forms.py:

from django import forms
from froala_editor.widgets import FroalaEditor

class PageForm(forms.ModelForm):
    content = models.TextField(widget=FroalaEditor)

Usage outside admin

When used outside the Django admin, the media files are to be manually included in the template. Inside the <head> section or before the form is rendered, include:

{{ form.media }}

In case of jQuery conflict (when your project template already has jQuery), you need to include the following files instead of {{ form.media }} plus the static files for theme (if not default) and required plugins.

<link href="{{STATIC_URL}}froala_editor/css/font-awesome.min.css" type="text/css" media="all" rel="stylesheet" />
<link href="{{STATIC_URL}}froala_editor/css/froala_editor.min.css" type="text/css" media="all" rel="stylesheet" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="{{STATIC_URL}}froala_editor/js/froala_editor.min.js"></script

If you don’t want to use jQuery from this package, you may use the following in your settings.py:

FROALA_INCLUDE_JQUERY = False

Customization

FroalaField and FroalaEditor take in the following arguments:

options

Froala Editor provides several options for customizing the editor. See http://editor.froala.com/docs for all available options. You can provide a dictionary of these options as FROALA_EDITOR_OPTIONS setting in settings.py. These options would then be used for all instances of the WYSIWYG editor in the project.

Options for individual field can also be provided via FroalaField or FroalEditor class. This overrides any options set via FROALA_EDITOR_OPTIONS.:

from django.db import models
from froala_editor.fields import FroalaField

class Page(models.Model):
    content = FroalaField(options={
        'inlineMode': True,
    })
from django import forms
from froala_editor.widgets import FroalaEditor

class PageForm(forms.ModelForm):
    content = forms.TextField(widget=FroalaEditor(options={
        'inlineMode': True,
    }        ))

theme

You may provide the name of the theme to be used as theme argument to FroalaField or FroalaEditor.

from django.db import models
from froala_editor.fields import FroalaField

class Page(models.Model):
    content = FroalaField(theme='dark')

FROALA_EDITOR_THEME can be set in settings.py making all instances of the editor to use a theme. However, theme argument in FroalaField and FroalaEditor overrides FROALA_EDITOR_THEME. Using a theme named ‘dark’ would require the existence of the file froala_editor/static/froala_editor/css/themes/dark.min.css. Only ‘dark’ theme is available for now with the package.

plugins

Froala Editor comes with the plugins: block style, text & background colors, font size, font family, insert video, insert table and media manager. By default, all plugins are enabled by default in this package. See http://editor.froala.com/plugins for all available plugins.

FROALA_EDITOR_PLUGINS can be set in settings.py to tell which plugins should all instances of Froala Editor be using. By default, it is

FROALA_EDITOR_PLUGINS = ('font_size', 'font_family', 'colors', 'block_styles', 'video', 'tables', 'media_manager',)

The usage of plugins argument with FroalaEditor or FroalaField overrides this for that particular instance.

from django.db import models
from froala_editor.fields import FroalaField

class Page(models.Model):
    content = FroalaField(plugins=('font_size', 'font_family',))

image_upload

FroalaEditor and FroalaField optionally take in a boolean value for image_upload argument to enable or disable image uploads. Image uploads are enabled by default if the urls of this package are included in your urls.py.

You can use FROALA_UPLOAD_PATH setting in settings.py to change the path where uploaded files are stored within the MEDIA_ROOT. By default, uploads/froala_editor/images is used for storing uploaded images.

include_jquery

jQuery is included by default in form media. If you don’t want to include jQuery, you may pass include_jquery=False to FroalaEditor or FroalaField. FROALA_INCLUDE_JQUERY can be also set in settings.py for project wide effects.
