    I've always liked elFinder. It is a jQuery application that allows for managing files through a web page. elFinder is capable of uploading, moving, previewing and editing all kinds of files on the fly. In version 2 you can also resize, rotate and crop your images online, so it is a perfect solution for your django website's administration interface. To integrate elfinder with django we created a reusable django application, the yawd-elfinder. In this simple tutorial we will install yawd-elfinder and connect it to our models. For more control over your files, please advice the documentation.

    Elrte is an open-source "What You See Is What You Get" editor written in jQuery. In my latest projects i tend to prefer this over other solutions (such as TinyMCE, (F)CKEditor etc) for its elegant UI, ease of use and mainly for its accompanying File manager (the elFinder). In this article we'll se how to integrate elRTE with django models, so that your text fields can take advantage of this editor.
