Widgy: Tree Editor for Django

Widgy is a content editor somewhat in the line of CKEditor. It is not a WYSIWYG editor though. Widgy is more suited than CKEditor for editing pages, as in a CMS because it allows you to edit specific parts of the page and those parts know how to render themselves. Whereas a WYSIWYG stores its data in HTML, Widgy stores it in a Tree where each node can render itself.

Widgy is available under the 2-clause BSD license. Contribute on github.

Widgy does not yet have a stable release, so it should be installed from source.

pip install -e git://

When developing Widgy, it might be handy to clone the repository then install it.

git clone git://
cd django-widgy
pip install -e .

Running the Tests

make test

make test will run both the JavaScript and Python tests. To test one or the other, use make test-js or make test-py.


Once coverage is installed (pip install coverage), the Makefile has two commands to help report on code coverage.

make coverage

will run the tests with coverage enabled and generate HTML coverage files.

make browser

will run the tests and open the coverage report in your web browser.
