django CMS documentation


django CMS is a modern web publishing platform built with Django, the web application framework "for perfectionists with deadlines".

django CMS offers out-of-the-box support for the common features you'd expect from a CMS, but can also be easily customised and extended by developers to create a site that is tailored to their precise needs.

Web content editors looking for documentation on how to use the editing interface should refer to our :doc:`/user/index` section.

Web content developers who want to learn more about django CMS, as well as how to install, configure and customize it for their own projects will can refer to :doc:`/introduction/index`, :doc:`/how_to/index`, :doc:`/topics/index` and :doc:`/reference/index` sections.

Why django CMS?

django CMS is a well-tested CMS platform that powers sites both large and small. Here are a few of the key features:

  • robust internationalisation (i18n) support for creating multilingual sites
  • virtually unlimited undo history, allowing editors to revert to a previous version
  • front-end editing, providing rapid access to the content management interface
  • support for a variety of editors with advanced text editing features.
  • a flexible plugins system that lets developers put powerful tools at the fingertips of editors, without overwhelming them with a difficult interface
  • ...and much more

There are other capable Django-based CMS platforms but here's why you should consider django CMS:

  • thorough documentation
  • easy and comprehensive integration into existing projects - django CMS isn't a monolithic application
  • a healthy, active and supportive developer community
  • a strong culture of good code, including an emphasis on automated testing
