The WYMeditor App

The WYMeditor app is included to make it easy to integrate a File Picker with a popular WYSIWYG interface. WYMeditor is a Javascript based editor. Its documentation can be found here. This application offers an extra form widget for applying WYMeditor to a text field with buttons for files and images if desired.


class file_picker.wymeditor.widgets.WYMeditorWidget

To use the WYMeditorWidget, override the desired form field’s widget. It takes in a dictionary with expected keys “image” and/or “file” which define which button is used to call the overlay, either an image or a paper clip icon respectively.

Example TextField Override

An example using a formfield_override in an admin class using WYMeditor and a File Picker for each TextField in the form:

class PostAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
        formfield_overrides = {
            models.TextField: {
                'widget': file_picker.wymeditor.widgets.WYMeditorWidget(
                        'image': "images",
                        'file': "files",

        class Media:
            js = ("",)
