For information on adding TinyMCE to a Django project, try using the Python-based django-tinymce package. For information on setting up django-tinymce, see: the django-tinymce Documentation.

To download TinyMCE and use it with the django-tinymce package:

  1. Get the package from TinyMCE Downloads.

  2. Unzip the package and move the 'path/to/tinymce/' directory into the django project.

  3. Add a URL path to the tinymce directory.

  4. Add the relevant configuration setting:

    • If you do not need the TINYMCE_COMPRESSOR (TINYMCE_COMPRESSOR = False), add TINYMCE_JS_URL to the project’s file pointing to tinymce/tinymce.min.js. Such as:

      TINYMCE_JS_URL = os.path.join(MEDIA_URL, "path/to/tinymce/tinymce.min.js")
    • If you do need the TINYMCE_COMPRESSOR (TINYMCE_COMPRESSOR = TRUE), add TINYMCE_JS_ROOT to the project’s file pointing to the tinymce/ root directory. Such as:

      TINYMCE_JS_ROOT = os.path.join(MEDIA_URL, "path/to/tinymce")
