Grid system for Django-CMS users which aims for ease of use.

Project Description

Django-CMS Layouter is a plugin for Django CMS which aims to provide a grid system for authors and editors with a high ease of use and comprehensibility. It is leveraging Bootstrap 3 as it is a very popular framework to create responsive websites.


Please feel free to contribute and help us to improve Django-CMS Layouter.

Installation and Configuration

Django-CMS Layouter supports Django-CMS>=3.4. It may way with any older version.

  • Install via pip: pip install djangocms-layouter.
  • Add layouter to INSTALLED_APPS.
  • Run migrations: python migrate layouter.
  • Done.


These are the core features of Django-CMS Layouter:

  • Flat tree in structure mode
  • Automatic arrangement of columns, for different screen sizes
  • Warning, due to too many plugins, in structure mode
  • Toggle grid - show and hide grid in content mode


No software is perfect, everyone’s code sucks. Feel free to suggest, criticize and/or contribute.

Dynamic Warning Updates - Dragging and Dropping in the structure view does not update the warnings within the plugin.

Author / Editor Documentation - IMHO this is one of the things Django-CMS lacks. We need more and better resources for authors and editors. Not only for Django-CMS, this plugin needs it to, for sure.

Advanced Mode - Not completely sure what it should look like. The current implementation is very limited when it comes to adapting columns for different screen sizes or using more than 4 columns. It currently is completely defined by this plugin, which can be good, but does not have to be. Some users want the plugin to take care, others want to control the behaviour themselves.

Tests - There should be something like casper.js tests, maybe there is something better.
