django CMS Code Climate

Open source enterprise content management system based on the Django framework.

Try demo with Divio Cloud


To propose significant new features, open pull requests based on and made against the develop branch. It's the branch for features that will go into the next django CMS feature release.

To propose fixes and backwards-compatible improvements, please work on the latest release branch. This is the branch that will become the next PyPI release ("the next version of django CMS").

Security fixes will be backported to older branches by the core team as appropriate.


  • hierarchical pages
  • extensive built-in support for multilingual websites
  • multi-site support
  • draft/publish workflows

  • frontend content editing
  • a hierarchical content structure for nested plugins
