It is very easy to use FCKeditor in your Python web pages. To start the integration follow the instructions below.

Integration step by step

Step 1

Ensure that the fckeditor.py is included in your classpath. Then, at first, import FCKeditor:

import fckeditor

Step 2

Now the FCKeditor is available and ready to use. So, just insert the following code in your page to create an instance of the editor inside a <FORM>:

try:

sBasePath = os.environ.get("SCRIPT_NAME")
sBasePath = sBasePath["/fckeditor/"]

oFCKeditor = fckeditor.FCKeditor('FCKeditor1')
oFCKeditor.BasePath = sBasePath
oFCKeditor.Value = """<p>This is some <strong>sample text</strong>. You are using <a href="http://www.fckeditor.net/">FCKeditor</a>.</p>"""
print oFCKeditor.Create()
except Exception, e:
print e
print """ 

Step 3

The editor is now ready to be used. Just open the page in your browser to see it at work.

Complete Sample

import cgi
import os

# Ensure that the fckeditor.py is included in your classpath
import fckeditor

# Tell the browser to render html
print "Content-Type: text/html"
print ""

# Document header
print """<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>FCKeditor - Sample</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow">
</head>
<body>
<form action="sampleposteddata.py" method="post" target="_blank">
"""

# This is the real work
try:
sBasePath = os.environ.get("SCRIPT_NAME")
sBasePath = sBasePath[0:sBasePath.find("_samples")]

oFCKeditor = fckeditor.FCKeditor('FCKeditor1')
oFCKeditor.BasePath = sBasePath
oFCKeditor.Value = """<p>This is some <strong>sample text</strong>. You are using <a href="http://www.fckeditor.net/">FCKeditor</a>.</p>"""
print oFCKeditor.Create()
except Exception, e:
print e
print """
<br>
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
"""

# For testing your environments
print "<hr>"
for key in os.environ.keys():
print "%s: %s<br>" % (key, os.environ.get(key, ""))
print "<hr>"

# Document footer
print """
</body>
</html>
"""

"FCKeditor1" is the name used to post the editor data on forms.
