Wagtail model chooser

A plugin for Wagtail that provides a ModelChooserPanel and ModelChooserBlock for arbitrary models.

Installing

Install using pip:

pip install wagtail-modelchooser

Then add it to your INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    # ...
    'wagtailmodelchooser',
    # ...
]

It works with Wagtail 1.4 and upwards.

Quick start

To enable the chooser for your model, you must register the model. For simple cases, decorate your model with @register_model_chooser:

from django.db import models

from wagtailmodelchooser import register_model_chooser


@register_model_chooser
class Author(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=255)

    def __str__(self):
        # The ``str()`` of your model will be used in the chooser
        return self.name

You can then use either ModelChooserPanel in an edit handler definition, or ModelChooserBlock in a StreamField definition:

from wagtail.wagtailcore.blocks import RichTextBlock
from wagtail.wagtailcore.fields import StreamField
from wagtail.wagtailcore.models import Page
from wagtail.wagtailadmin.edit_handlers import FieldPanel, StreamFieldPanel
from wagtailmodelchooser.blocks import ModelChooserBlock
from wagtailmodelchooser.edit_handlers import ModelChooserPanel

class Book(Page):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=255)
    author = models.ForeignKey(Author)

    content_panels = [
        FieldPanel('name'),
        ModelChooserPanel('author'),
    ]

class ContentPage(Page):
    body = StreamField([
        ('text', RichTextBlock()),
        ('author', ModelChooserBlock('books.Author')),
    ])

    content_panels = [
        StreamFieldPanel('body'),
    ]
