django-pagecontents / usage

Introduction

pagecontents provides page contents editing within your web applications and projects. It is not a full CMS engine.

Typical use

First, edit your page's template to add editable content markers. Add a ContentTag wherever you need editable content.

Then, create a page in your django admin. Set its label and template, save. When a page's template is defined, you can then set its contents (a field for each content marker).

In your project views, you can then use the pagecontents api to serve the page.

page_response

You can produce a page response using its primary key :

from pagecontents.api import page_response

def my_view(request):
    # my view logic
    return page_response(page_id, context)

page_response will return an HttpResponse? from your context, the page's template and saved contents for current language.

response_for_path

You can also produce a page's response using its path (if defined for the page in admin)

from pagecontents.api import response_for_path

def my_view(request):
    # my view logic
    return page_response(request.path, context)

dynamic_view

You can have full dynamic pages by adding this line at the end of your urlpatterns in urls.py

url('', 'pagecontents.api.dynamic_view'),
