============== Django Redator ============== *(django-redator is no longer supported!)* **Django Redator** (sic) is a application for the `Django Web Framework`_ to help you integrate `Redactor`_, a beautiful and easy-to-use WYSIWYG HTML editor, into your projects. .. _`Django Web Framework`: http://www.djangoproject.com .. _`Redactor`: http://imperavi.com/redactor/ Installing & Setup ================== Redator is available on `Python Package Index (PyPI)`_ so you can easily install the latest stable version of it using *pip*:: pip instal django-redator On your Django project you must add ``redator`` to your ``INSTALLED_APPS`` and configure your ``urls.py``:: url(r'^_redator/', include('redator.urls', namespace='redactor', app_name='redator')), You also have to create the database tables:: python manage.py syncdb --migrate You can change the default settings by editing yours project ``settings.py``:: REDATOR_UPLOAD_TO = 'redator/%Y-%m/' REDATOR_REDACTOR_OPTIONS = { 'autoresize': False, 'cleanup': True, 'lang': 'en', 'wym': True, } Redactor -------- Unfortunately Redactor is not a Software Libre, so we could not pack it into this application. You have to get it at http://imperavi.com/redactor/download/ and copy the directory containing the files ``redactor.min.js`` and ``redactor.css`` to some directory specified at your ``STATICFILES_DIRS`` setting. (Make sure you are able to access Redactor files on URL ``{{ STATIC_URL }}redactor/``.) How-To ====== Forms ----- Using it together your Django forms is easy as using a custom ``CharField`` widget:: from django import forms from redator.widgets import RedactorEditor class PostForm(forms.Form): title = forms.CharField() body = forms.CharField(widget=RedactorEditor( # redactor_options={ # 'wym': False, # 'autoresize': True, # } )) Remember to render the media assets in your HTML template:: {{ form.media }} {{ form }} .. _`Python Package Index (PyPI)`: http://pypi.python.org/ Admin ----- Django Redator also provides a widget to you use on ``ModelAdmin``. It just add some CSS rules to display it better on Admin:: from redator.widgets import RedactorEditorAdmin class MyModelAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin): formfield_overrides = { TextField: {'widget': RedactorEditorAdmin( attrs={'rows': 24} )}, } class Media: js = ('//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js',) Troubleshooting and Known Issues ================================ 1. If the images you just uploaded are not showing on Redactor tab "Choose" from "Insert Image" modal, you might have to disable the cache of jQuery Ajax requests:: <script type="text/javascript"> $(document).ready(function() { $.ajaxSetup({ cache: false }); }); </script> License ======= Django Redator -------------- | Copyright (c) 2012-, Guilherme Gondim | Copyright (c) 2010-2012 Vladimir Sidorenko Django Redator is Software Libre; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the BSD (3-clause) License.
