Usage

If you want to use the EpicEditor editor in a django admin field, there are numerous possible approaches:

To use it in all TextField's in you admin form:

from django.db import models
from epiceditor.widgets import AdminEpicEditorWidget

class FooModelAdmin(models.ModelAdmin):
    formfield_overrides = {
        models.TextField: {'widget': AdminEpicEditorWidget },
    }

Alternatively, to only use it on particular fields, first create a form (in forms.py):

from django import forms
from models import FooModel
from epiceditor.widgets import AdminEpicEditorWidget
class FooModelForm(forms.ModelForm):
    a_text_field = forms.CharField(widget=AdminEpicEditorWidget())
    another_text_field = forms.CharField(widget=AdminEpicEditorWidget())

    class Meta:
        model = FooModel

and in your admin.py:

from forms import FooModelForm

class FooModelAdmin(models.ModelAdmin):
    form = FooModelForm

Themes

EpicEditor comes with different themes. In order to change the default themes EpicEditorWidget allows you to pass themes parameters. For instance if you want to use the light theme for the editor do as follow:

from django import forms
from models import FooModel
from epiceditor.widgets import AdminEpicEditorWidget
class FooModelForm(forms.ModelForm):
    a_text_field = forms.CharField(widget=AdminEpicEditorWidget(themes={'editor':'epic-light.css'}))
    another_text_field = forms.CharField(widget=AdminEpicEditorWidget())

    class Meta:
        model = FooModel

Notes

This plugin was develop by taking inspiration from django-pagedown and is using the great EpicEditor.
