django-redactoreditor 1.2.10

Integrates the Redactor Javascript WYSIWYG editor with Django.

This package helps integrate the Redactor Javascript WYSIWYG-editor in Django.

Installation

  1. Pip install: pip install django-redactoreditor (or add the redactor directory to your Python path)
  2. Add the redactor application to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.

Usage

The redactor app provides a Django widget called RedactorEditor. It is a drop-in replacement for any TextArea widget. Example usage:

from django import forms
from django.db import models

from redactor.widgets import RedactorEditor

class MyForm(forms.Form):
    about_me = forms.CharField(widget=RedactorEditor())

You can also customize any of the Redactor editor’s settings when instantiating the widget:

class MyForm(forms.Form):

    about_me = forms.CharField(widget=RedactorEditor(redactor_settings={
        'autoformat': True,
        'overlay': False
    }))

Django-redactor also includes a widget with some some customizations that make it function and look better in the Django admin:

class MyAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    formfield_overrides = {
            models.TextField: {'widget': AdminRedactorEditor},
    }

Finally, you can connect a custom CSS file to the editable area of the editor:

class MyForm(forms.Form):
    about_me = forms.CharField(widget=RedactorEditor(
        redactor_css="styles/text.css")
    )

Paths used to specify CSS can be either relative or absolute. If a path starts with ‘/’, ‘http://’ or ‘https://’, it will be interpreted as an absolute path, and left as-is. All other paths will be prepended with the value of the STATIC_URL setting (or MEDIA_URL if static is not defined).

For the sake of convenience, there is also a form field that can be used that accepts the same inputs. This field can be used anywhere forms.CharField can and accepts the same arguments, but always renders a Redactor widget:

from redactor.fields import RedactorField

class MyForm(forms.Form):
    about_me = RedactorField(
        in_admin=True,
        redactor_css="styles/text.css",
        redactor_settings={'overlay': True}
    )

jQuery

The redactor javascript library requires jQuery 1.9 or better to function. By default, jQuery is included as part of the field and widget media. However, this can cause issues where other widgets or forms on a page are using a different version of jQuery. It is possible to exclude jQuery from the media of the redactor field and wdiget if you wish to handle JavaScript dependency management yourself:

class MyForm(forms.Form):
    about_me = RedactorField(include_jquery=False)

Templating

If you are using a redactor widget outside the admin, you’ll need to be sure that you render the form’s media. Redactor widgets need to include some CSS and JavaScript to work properly:

<form>
    {{ myform.media }}
    {{ myform.as_p }}
    <input type="submit"/>
</form>

Internationalization

If you wish to use Redactor in other languages, you only need to specify the lang setting. The correct javascript language files will be loaded automatically:

class MyForm(forms.Form):

    about_me = forms.CharField(widget=RedactorEditor(redactor_settings={
        'autoformat': True,
        'lang': 'es',
        'overlay': False
    }))
