Installation and Setup

  1. django-pagelets is available on PyPI, so the easiest way to install it is to use pip:

    pip install django-pagelets
    
  2. Add pagelets to INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py and run syncdb:

    INSTALLED_APPS = (
        ...,
        'pagelets',
        ...
    )
    
  3. Add django.core.context_processors.request to TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS:

    TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = (
        "django.contrib.auth.context_processors.auth",
        "django.core.context_processors.debug",
        "django.core.context_processors.i18n",
        "django.core.context_processors.media",
        "django.core.context_processors.static",
        "django.contrib.messages.context_processors.messages",
        "django.core.context_processors.request", # <----
    )
    
  4. Add the pagelets URLs to urls.py, e.g.:

    urlpatterns += patterns('',
        (r'^pagelets-management/', include('pagelets.urls.management')),
        (r'^', include('pagelets.urls.content')),
    )
    
  5. Visit the admin site, add and save a new page, and click the View on site link. If everything is setup correctly, you should be able to see and edit the content you just added.
