Project Status

We are working to upgrade the package for the latest versions of Django and Wagtail. While doing this we may need to change the way the package is structured as well as making breaking changes to the code. If you want to use Longclaw in a project, please use the latest release (1.0.2) until we have finished the upgrade.

Currently supported versions

We are currently running the tests against the following versions of Python, Django and Wagtail.

  • Django >= 2.2, < 3.1
  • Wagtail >= 2.11, < 2.14
  • Python >= 3.7, < 3.10


If you are interested in working on this project, please use the Development setup instructions below to get started.


Install Longclaw:

pip install longclaw

Setup a Longclaw project

longclaw start my_project

Go to project directory and create missing migrations

python manage.py makemigrations home catalog

Do migrations for whole project and run

python manage.py migrate
python manage.py loadcountries
python manage.py createsuperuser
python manage.py runserver


  • Tightly integrated with Wagtail. Create products, manage orders, configure shipping and view statistics all from the Wagtail admin.
  • Multiple payment backends. Longclaw currently supports Stripe, Braintree and PayPal (v.zero) payments.
  • Comprehensive REST API & javascript client easily loaded via a template tag
  • Create your catalogue as Wagtail pages, with complete control over your product fields
  • Easy setup. Just run longclaw start my_project to get going
  • Simple to use, simple to change. Write your frontend as you would any other wagtail website. No complicated overriding, forking etc in order to customise behaviour.
