Django Arctic is a framework that speeds up the creation of custom content management systems. It provides a Bootstrap 4 based user interface, role based authentication and a number of generic Django Views that provide great looking and feature-rich lists and forms.
- Lists support sorting, searching, links, nested fields, custom columns and data sources not only from databases but also from APIs
- The Forms have enhanced widgets for DateTime, AutoComplete and MultiSelect and also support custom layouts without having to create extra templates.
There are a lot of content management systems in the market that are a good fit for the creation of many web sites. Most CMS's make assumptions about the data model for posts, authentication and the administration interface.
There is however a tipping point, where customizing a CMS product is so extensive that it ends up being better to use some lower level framework.
This is the case that Arctic wants to solve, creation of a CMS with a high degree of customization. Instead of being a ready-to-use CMS, Arctic is a framework that facilitates the construction of content management systems.
