Django allows developers to take web applications from conception to launch within hours, taking away much of the hassle of web development, and allowing you to focus solely on your app and your end users. Django has been used in many popular apps, including Disqus, Instagram, Spotify, and more.
When it comes to your users, you want to make sure they have the best user experience possible. This includes when they’re entering text, data, messages, images, emojis...all the types of content that we’re using to communicate with these days.
Our rich text editor caters for a wide variety of use cases, enabling users to enter rich text in technologies such as chat apps through to CMSs. It’s highly customizable, enabling developers to configure it for any situation. For example, if you’re making a commenting system like Disqus or an event system like Eventbrite, TinyMCE can provide an easy way to add formatting functionality for your users.
This is the case with Django.
We wanted a way to add a WYSIWYG editor so users could edit HTML descriptions in text areas in the Django Admin and other Django forms. A lot of people were considering using Django with TinyMCE and it was great to be able to collaborate on a piece of code that could help ease integration. TinyMCE is a clean editor that is highly customizable and comes with a handful of plugins that can help integrate images and links. Using django-tinymce with django-filebrowser is really nice, with a neat, smooth experience.
