Django CMS Apps Comparison

depth Maximum depth of page hierarchy
i18n-URL URLs (page slugs) can be translated
prefix URL language prefix support (e.g. /de/page1/)
edit-in-place Support for editing page content in-line (as opposed to only in the Django admin)

Most of my conclusions about supported features are based on reading the code, not on actually testing the apps. Please make corrections in case I missed something.


To do

Ideas for making this page better:

  • add column for supported Django versions/revisions/branches
