Version 0.31-5-g52fe65e

feincms3 offers tools and building blocks which make building a CMS that is versatile, powerful and tailor-made at the same time for each project a reachable reality.

It builds on other powerful tools such as Django itself and its admin interface, django-content-editor to allow creating and editing structured content and django-tree-queries for querying hierarchical data such as page trees.

The tools can be used for a page CMS, but also work well for other types of content such as news magazines or API backends for mobile apps.


Despite its version number feincms3 is already used in production on many sites and backwards compatibility isn’t broken lightly.


This documentation uses Python 3’s keyword-only syntax in a few places.

While Python 3 is strongly recommended feincms3 still supports Python 2. Keyword-only usage is enforced by function wrappers for now.

Embedding apps

feincms3 allows content managers to freely place pre-defined applications in the page tree. Examples for apps include forms, or a news app with archives, detail pages etc.

The apps documentation is meant to be read in order.
