Plugins-based content management System for dynamic applications written in Python and Javascript


Keywords:web, cms, dynamic, ajax, django, jquery


Djpcms is a dynamic Content Management System which uses Python with django on the server side and Javascript with jQuery on the browser side. It is designed to handle dynamic applications which require high level of customization. Lots of AJAX enabled features including inline editing, autocomplete and ajax forms.

It is based on django models, for now, but it will work for other object relational mappers too!


  • Dynamic pages based on database models.
  • Applications based on database model or not.
  • Extendible using plugins.
  • Inline editing of plugins and pages.
  • Move plugins in page using drag-and-drop functionalities.
  • Autocomplete for models when the autocomplete view is added to the model application.
  • Extendible AJAX decorators.
  • Tagging with django-tagging, included in distribution.
  • Several battery included application classes.
  • Integration with Django and South support for database migration.
  • Nice form layout with extendible uniforms.
  • Deployment tools using fabric.
  • Sitemap design.

Dependencies and Python 3

It requires Python 2.6 or above. It is not yet compatible with Python 3 series but it will be ported as soon as the library is independent from django and the API is stable enough. As mentioned it idepends on django, however in the long run, this dependency will be removed so that it can be used with other web-frameworks as well.

Optional requirements:

  • fabric and pip for the djpcms.contrib.jdep module.


Djpcms includes several open-source libraries and plugins developed by other authors and communities:


  • django-tagging for tag management. Shipped with the library in the libs module but a library in its own.


  • jQuery core and UI are the building block of the browser side of djpcms.
  • jQuery tablesorter plugin for managing dynamic tables.
  • jQuery jstree plugin for managing tree components.
  • jQuery cycle plugin for photo galleries.
  • jQuery Sparklines plugin for inline plotting.
  • Modernizr, a small JavaScript library that detects the availability of native implementations for next-generation web technologies.
