See REQUIREMENTS in the file for additional dependencies:

python django djangocms


For a manual install:

  • run pip install djangocms-style
  • add djangocms_style to your INSTALLED_APPS
  • run python migrate djangocms_style


django CMS Style enables you to provide a list of predefined classes to be displayed as first options, the default choices are:

DJANGOCMS_STYLE_CHOICES = ['container', 'content', 'teaser']

You are encouraged to modify that setting to your projects specifications.

This addon provides a default template for all instances. You can provide additional template choices by adding a DJANGOCMS_STYLE_TEMPLATES setting:

    ('feature', _('Feature')),

You'll need to create the feature folder inside templates/djangocms_style/ otherwise you will get a template does not exist error. You can do this by copying the default folder inside that directory and renaming it to feature.

The available tags can also be configured, the default choices are:

DJANGOCMS_STYLE_TAGS = ['div', 'article', 'section', 'header', 'footer',
                        'h1', 'h2', 'h3', 'h4', 'h5', 'h6']


All tags included in this list should be "paired tags" that require a
closing tag. It does not make sense to attempt to use 'img', 'input',
'meta', or other self-closing tags in this setting.

Also, the developer is advised to choose the tag-types wisely to avoid HTML
validation issues and/or unintentional security vulnerabilities. For
example, the 'script' tag should never be allowed in
``DJANGOCMS_STYLE_TAGS`` (though, we do not prevent this). If you have
an application where you find yourself wishing to do this, please see
djangocms-snippet as an alternative, but note these projects also come
with appropriate security warnings.

After that you can place any number of other plugins inside this style plugin. It will create a div (or other tag-type) with a class that was prior selected around the contained plugins.
