DForm is a survey creation and management tool for Django. Features include:

  • admin based editor
  • Bootstrap 3 forms
  • version control on survey questions


Add ‘dform’ to your settings.INSTALLED_APPS field.

The URLs for DForm are split into two files, the first is for the admin pieces, the second for form submission. By default the form submission pieces have no security or control on them and the correct usage of URLs will result in creating and/or editing of any survey. To fine tune what can be accessed you can either use the permissions hook, or not include the submission URLs and wrap the given views in your own. To use the default, include both URL sets in your file:

urlpatterns += (
    url(r'dform/', include('dform.urls')),
    url(r'dform_admin/', include('dform.admin_urls')),

See the documentation for more information on using the permission hook or what views to wrap.
