Live Demo



The full document is in https://django-quill-editor.readthedocs.io/, including everything about how to use the Form or ModelForm, and where you can add custom settings.

Please refer to the QuickStart section below for simple usage.



  • Install django-quill-editor to your Python environment

    Requires Python 3.7 or higher and Django 3.1 or higher.

    pip install django-quill-editor
  • Add django_quill to INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py

    # settings.py

Making Model

Add QuillField to the Model class you want to use.

  1. App containing models.py must be added to INSTALLED_APPS
  2. After adding the app, you need to run makemigrations and migrate to create the DB table.
# models.py
from django.db import models
from django_quill.fields import QuillField

class QuillPost(models.Model):
    content = QuillField()

Using in admin

Just register the Model in admin.py of the app.

from django.contrib import admin
from .models import QuillPost

class QuillPostAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):


Running the Live Demo project in local

The live demo is a deployment of the "playground" package, which is a django application within this library.
After cloning or downloading the repository, you can try running the live demo locally.

A Python virtual environment is required to run the project.

# [Optional] We recommend that you start after creating a folder for your project.
mkdir ~/projects
cd projects

# Clone repository
git clone git@github.com:LeeHanYeong/django-quill-editor.git

# Go to the project directory and apply the virtual environment
cd django-quill-editor
# [apply venv]

# Go to the playground package
cd playground

# Install requirements
pip install -r requirements.txt

# Run migrate and runserver
python manage.py migrate
python manage.py runserver

After the above operation, the live demo site works at localhost:8000.


As an open source project, we welcome contributions. The code lives on GitHub
