django-flatpages-tinymce 0.1.1

HTML editor on django.contrib.flatpages
django-flatpages-tinymce is a Django app that provides on-site editing of "Flat Pages" with minimal impact on the rest of code.

Usage:

First of all, you need to have django-flatpages-tinymce and django-tinymce installed; for your convenience, recent versions should be available from PyPI.

To use, just add these applications to your INSTALLED_APPS after django.contrib.flatpages app:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
 ...
 'django.contrib.flatpages',
 ...
 'tinymce',
 'flatpages_tinymce',
)


If you want on-site editing of templates, you must edit flatpages templates: change {{flatpage.content} to {% flatpage_admin flatpage %} from flatpage_admin template library. So

{% extends "base.html" %}
{% block body %}
{% endblock %}
{% block body %}
< h1 >{{flatpage.title}}< /h1 >
{{flatpage.content}}
{% endblock %}


will become

{% extends "base.html" %}
{% load flatpage_admin %}
{% block body %}
< h1 >{{flatpage.title}}< /h1 >
{% flatpage_admin flatpage %]
{% endblock %}


If you are bothered with < script >/< link > tags, being inserted in < body > tag and your template has something like {% block extrahead %}, you can move all plugin media in head, using {% flatpage_media %} tag.

{% extends "base.html" %}
{% block extrahead %}
{% flatpage_media %}
{% endblock %}
{% block body %}
< h1 >{{flatpage.title}}< /h1 >
{% flatpage_admin flatpage %}
{% endblock %}


Settings

Default settings are in flatpages_tinymce.settings.py file. Also, you can override them in site-wide settings.py file. The main of them are:

 FLATPAGES_TINYMCE_ADMIN (default True) - use TinyMCE widget in admin area
 FLATPAGES_TINYMCE_FRONTEND (default True) - use TinyMCE widget in frontend
 FLATPAGES_TEMPLATE_DIR (default: TEMPLATE_DIRS[0] + 'flatpages') - directory where flatpages templates are placed
 FLATPAGES USE_MINIFIED (defalut: not settings.DEBUG) - use minified versions of JS/CSS


Further, you will want to change default settings of TinyMCE Editor.

TINYMCE_DEFAULT_CONFIG = {
 # custom plugins
 'plugins': "table,spellchecker,paste,searchreplace",
 # editor theme
 'theme': "advanced",
 # custom CSS file for styling editor area
 'content_css': MEDIA_URL + "css/custom_tinymce.css",
 # use absolute urls when inserting links/images
 'relative_urls': False,
}
