Introduction

This is a Django application to add django-crispy-forms template pack for Materializecss.

The main goal of this project is to reduce the time spent by developers on styling forms. Since most of the time we are using a css framework, the work done in styling different forms is quite redundant and boring. This library aims at reducing this redundancy by automatically sytling your forms using the Materializecss framework.

How To Use

Add the following code to settings.py to specify which template pack to use

    
    CRISPY_TEMPLATE_PACK = 'materialize'

Create a form in forms.py and override its init to add FormHelper as the helper.

class TestForm(forms.Form):
    username = forms.CharField()
    password = forms.CharField(widget=forms.PasswordInput)

    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(TestForm, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
        self.helper = FormHelper()

Associate it with a view

class RegisterView(FormView):
    form_class = TestForm
    template_name = 'test.html'

And finally the template

{% load crispy_forms_tags %}
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <title></title>
    <!--Add materialize libraries -->
    <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <!-- Compiled and minified CSS -->
    <link rel="stylesheet"
          href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/materialize/0.97.1/css/materialize.min.css">

    <!-- Compiled and minified JavaScript -->
    <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/materialize/0.97.1/js/materialize.min.js"></script>

    <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/icon?family=Material+Icons"
          rel="stylesheet">

</head>
<body>
<div class="row">
    <div class="card-panel col m6 offset-m3">
        <!-- Only one line -->
        {% crispy form %}
    </div>
</div>

</body>
</html>

Which finally leads into something like this -

Note - We did not have to write any css to style the form. It was auto-generated from the form class.
