Django template loader that allows you to load and override a template from a specific Django application.

Project description

Build status Python versions Software license

django-apptemplates is a Django template loader that allows you to load a template from a specific application. By this you can both extend and override a template at the same time. The default Django loaders require you to copy the entire template you want to override, even if you only want to override one small block.

Based on: http://djangosnippets.org/snippets/1376/

Version Support

django-apptemplates is tested against the officially supported combinations of Python and Django, since Django 1.4 (Django 1.4 to 2.0 on Python 2.6 to 3.6).

Installation, Setup and Use

This package is available from PyPI. To install it simply execute:

$ pip install django-apptemplates

Settings (for Django 1.8+)

TEMPLATES = [
    {
        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'OPTIONS': {
            'loaders': [
                'apptemplates.Loader',
                'django.template.loaders.filesystem.Loader',
                'django.template.loaders.app_directories.Loader',
            ],
        },
    },
]

TEMPLATE_LOADERS = (
    'apptemplates.Loader',
    'django.template.loaders.filesystem.Loader',
    'django.template.loaders.app_directories.Loader',
)

How to Use in Templates

Template usage example (extend and override Django admin base template):

{% extends "admin:admin/base.html" %}

The part before the colon (:) is called the Django app namespace.
