In djangoCMS-Cascade version 0.7.0, the configuration settings have been hugely refactored. If you were using version 0.6.2 or lower, check your settings.py for deprecated configuration directives.

Project’s goals

  1. Create a modular system, which allows programmers to add simple widget code, without having to implement an extra djangoCMS plugins for each of them.
  2. Make available a meaningful subset of widgets as available for the most common CSS frameworks, such as Twitter Bootstrap. With these special plugins, in many configurations, djangoCMS can be operated using one single template, containing one generic placeholder.
  3. Extend this djangoCMS plugin, to be used with other CSS frameworks such as Foundation 5, Unsemantic and others.
  4. Use the base functionality of djangoCMS-Cascade to easily add special plugins. For instance, djangoSHOP implements all its cart and checkout specific forms this way.
