Django goodies to dress JSON data in a suit.

Documentation
-------------

The full documentation is at https://tooreht.github.io/django-jsonsuit

Features
--------

- Editable and readonly widget
- Change JSON syntax highlighter themes
- Set custom widget media (JS & CSS) files
- Use custom HTML templates

Quickstart
----------

Install django-jsonsuit:

::

pip install django-jsonsuit

Add it to your ``INSTALLED_APPS``:

.. code:: sourcecode

INSTALLED_APPS = (
...
'jsonsuit.apps.JSONSuitConfig',
...
)

Usage
-----

Widgets
~~~~~~~

django-jsonsuit currently provides two widgets to dress your JSON data:

1. ``JSONSuit``: Widget that displays JSON data with indentation and
syntax highlighting as default, but allows to toggle between the
standard django ``Textarea`` for editing.
2. ``ReadonlyJSONSuit``: Widget that simply displays JSON data with
indentation and syntax highlighting. It is useful for JSON fields
that contain readonly data.

**Note**: Because a widget in django is only responsible for displaying
fields, it has no direct access to its field properties. Thus there is
no easy way to check if the field is readonly. The readonly behaviour is
even handled differently among django forms, model forms and admin. This
is why the ``ReadonlyJSONSuit`` was introduced.

JSONSuit
^^^^^^^^

In a form or model admin, enable a JSON suit for a particular field:

.. code:: python

from jsonsuit.widgets import JSONSuit

class JSONForm(forms.ModelForm):
class Meta:
model = Test
fields = '__all__'
widgets = {
'myjsonfield': JSONSuit(),
}

class JSONAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
form = JSONForm

Enable JSON suit for every JSONField of a model:

.. code:: python

from django.contrib.postgres.fields import JSONField

class JSONAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
formfield_overrides = {
JSONField: {'widget': JSONSuit }
}

ReadonlyJSONSuit
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

In a form or model admin, enable a readonly JSON suit for a particular
field:

.. code:: python

from jsonsuit.widgets import ReadonlyJSONSuit

class ReadonlyJSONForm(forms.ModelForm):
class Meta:
model = Test
fields = '__all__'
widgets = {
'myjsonfield': ReadonlyJSONSuit(),
}

class ReadonlyJSONAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
form = ReadonlyJSONForm

Enable readonly JSON suit for every JSONField of a model:

.. code:: python

from django.contrib.postgres.fields import JSONField

class ReadonlyJSONAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
formfield_overrides = {
JSONField: {'widget': ReadonlyJSONSuit }
}

Template Tags
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Use the jsonsuit template tag to display serializable objects in
templates. Note that in order to use the ``jsonsuit``, ``jsonsuit_css``
and ``jsonsuit_js`` tags, they must be loaded using
``{% load jsonsuit %}``.

.. code:: html

{% extends "ui/base.html" %}
{% load jsonsuit %}

{% block title %}{% trans "JSONSuit Template Tag" %}{% endblock %}

{% block styles %}
{{ block.super }}
{% jsonsuit_css %}
{% endblock %}

{% block content %}
<div class="row">
<div class="col-md-4">
<h2>Unnamed Suit</h2>
{% jsonsuit data %}
</div>
<div class="col-md-8">
<h2>Named Suit</h2>
{% jsonsuit data 'suit_name' %}
</div>
</div>
{% endblock %}

{% block scripts %}
{{ block.super }}
{% jsonsuit_js %}
{% endblock %}

Theme
~~~~~

Set JSON syntax highlighter theme in settings:

.. code:: python

JSONSUIT_WIDGET_THEME = 'twilight'

Available themes: ``coy``, ``dark``, ``default``, ``funky``,
``okaidia``, ``solarizedlight``, ``twilight``. Defaults to the
``default`` theme.

Custom Widget Media
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Set custom widget media (JS & CSS) files:

.. code:: python

JSONSUIT_WIDGET_MEDIA_JS = (
'jsonsuit/js/mysyntaxhighlighter.js', 'jsonsuit/js/myscripts.js'
)

JSONSUIT_WIDGET_MEDIA_CSS = {
'all': ('jsonsuit/css/mytheme.css', 'jsonsuit/css/mystyles.css')
}

JSONSUIT_READONLY_WIDGET_MEDIA_JS = (
'jsonsuit/js/mysyntaxhighlighter.js', 'jsonsuit/js/myreadonlyscripts.js'
)

JSONSUIT_READONLY_WIDGET_MEDIA_CSS = {
'all': ('jsonsuit/css/mytheme.css', 'jsonsuit/css/myreadonlystyles.css')
}

To only replace the syntax highlighter assets for all widgets, simply
change:

.. code:: python

JSONSUIT_SYNTAX_HIGHLIGHTER_JS = ('jsonsuit/js/mysyntaxhighlighter.js',)
JSONSUIT_SYNTAX_HIGHLIGHTER_CSS = ('jsonsuit/css/mytheme.css',)

Custom HTML template
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Override ``jsonsuit/widget.html`` or ``jsonsuit/readonly_widget.html``
template:

.. code:: bash

jsonsuit/templates
└── jsonsuit
└── widget.html
└── readonly_widget.html
