django-markupmirror 0.1 RC1

Django field and widget for editing markup content
django-markupmirror is a custom Django field and widget for editing markup text. It utilizes the CodeMirror JS editor for a richer editing experience.

It uses parts of James Turk's django-markupfield and adds a nicer widget with live-preview and an extension content-type for FeinCMS.

 To install django-markupmirror, use pip (or easy_install or simply python install from source) and add 'markupmirror' to the INSTALLED_APPS in your Django project.

 If you want the FeinCMS content-type model MarkupMirrorContent, you'll also need to add 'markupmirror.feincms' to your INSTALLED_APPS.

 Also, you need to register the content-type model with FeinCMS' Page module:

 from import Page
 from markupmirror.feincms.models import MarkupMirrorContent


 In your specify at least MARKUPMIRROR_DEFAULT_MARKUP_TYPE which is 'plaintext' by default.

 Add one or more markupmirror.fields.MarkupMirrorField s to your models and define markup_type or default_markup_type:

 class ModelWithMarkup(models.Model):
 content = MarkupMirrorField(
 verbose_name="content", markup_type='markdown')

By default, django-markupmirror comes with markup converters for plain text (converts links and linebreaks) and HTML (does nothing). Converters for Markdown, reStructuredText and Textile are also available, but require 3rd-party libraries to be installed. However, you can register your own markup converters.
