Adds header and tail scripts from addons.

Project description

pypi build coverage

Aldryn Snake adds tail and head context processors for addons similar to django-sekizai.

This addon still uses the legacy “Aldryn” naming. You can read more about this in our support section.

See REQUIREMENTS in the file for additional dependencies:

python django


  • add aldryn_snake.template_api.template_processor to your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS settings

  • somewhere in your app (that will be imported on startup (models, admin etc) add something to the api:

        from aldryn_snake.template_api import registry
    from django.conf import settings
    OPTIMIZELY_SCRIPT = """<script src="//"></script>"""
    def get_crazyegg_script():
      optimizely_number = getattr(settings, 'OPTIMIZELY_ACCOUNT_NUMBER', None)
      if optimizely_number:
          return OPTIMIZELY_SCRIPT % {'account_number': optimizely_number}
          return ''

If add_to_tail or add_to_head receive a callable, it will be called with the request keyword argument.

  • add the following in your base template to the HEAD:

    {{ ALDRYN_SNAKE.render_head }}
  • add the following in your base template right above </BODY>:

    {{ ALDRYN_SNAKE.render_tail }}
