django-scribbler is an application for managing snippets of text for a Django website. Similar projects include django-flatblocks, django-chunks and django-pagelets. This project attempts to take some of the best concepts from those previous projects as well as focus on giving the users instant feedback inspired by Bret Victor's Inventing on Principle talk.

Build Status


  • Simple template tag for defining snippet blocks with default text
  • Template tag for displaying and editing fields from arbitrary models
  • Front-end editing of snippets with the powerful CodeMirror editor
  • Live in-place preview of content while editing
  • The full power of the Django template language in the snippet blocks
  • Python 3 support


django-scribbler requires Django >= 1.3 and Python >= 2.6. Starting with version v0.2 there will be experimental Python 3 support (3.2+). Using Python 3 requires using Django >= 1.5.

To install from PyPi:
