django CMS Attributes Field

An opinionated implementation of JSONField for arbitrary HTML element attributes. This project aims to provide a sensible means of storing and managing arbitrary HTML element attributes for later emitting them into templates. There are a wide variety of types of attributes and using the "normal" Django method of adding ModelFields for each on a business model is cumbersome at best and moreover may require related tables to allow cases where any number of the same type of attribute should be supported (i.e., data-attributes). This can contribute to performance problems. To avoid these pitfalls, this package allows all of these attributes to be stored together in a single text field in the database as a JSON blob, but provides a nice widget to provide an intuitive, key/value pair interface and provide sensible validation of the keys used.
