A new django plugin open sourced
April 29, 2013
There are lot of useful plugins for Django CMS. Well, this plugin let you use the images from a Facebook Album. Currently it supports fetching images from Photo Album of a Facebook Page.
All you need to do is to put Facebook Album URL, Access-token and the album name in the plugin fields and you will get a nice thumbnail in the intended place and once clicked big images will open in carousel effects. Sounds nice, take a look at the screen-shots below.
- Entering the details in plugin form:
- Thumbnail view of plugin:

- Image slideshow in carousel
Installation is dead simple. First start your virtualenv
$ workon sample (sample)$ pip install cmsplugin-fbalbum
You might need to do this if you are getting some sort of database error.
python manage.py syncdb python manage.py migrate
