Building applications on top of djangoCMS

Sunday: 14:30 - 16:30

Workshop leader: Jacob Rief

Designing the frontend of Django projects, traditionally is based on a top-down approach using Views and Templates. With the spread of innumerous displaying devices, this page-centric approach isn’t appropriate anymore. Atomic Web Design starts from the bottom by defining the look and feel of icons, input fields and navigation elements. DjangoCMS’s plugin system offers various possibilities to assemble these components, making modern web design much more reusable and versionable that it used to be.

In this workshop, I will present how to work with the djangoCMS ecosystem, mainly using djangocms-cascade.

Additionally I’ll show how djangoSHOP uses djangoCMS and its plugin system to build a complete e-commerce site with just one very simple page template.
