Material Forms

Introduction

Django-Material offers the alternative approach to rendering forms in django. Strong Python/HTML code separation keeps you code DRY and free from underline HTML/CSS rendering details. Field rendering customization happens in a template, not in code. Layouts allow setting relative location and size of fields.

Forms are rendered with MaterializeCSS framework
