context processors and helpers for BIDI in django templates

Project description

Django Bidi Utils

Provides context processors and filters for handling Bi-directional (BiDi) in django templates.

Context processors

Add it to TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS in your project’s settings.py. e.g:

("django.core.context_processors.auth",
"django.core.context_processors.debug",
"django.core.context_processors.i18n",
"django.core.context_processors.media",
"bidiutils.context_processors.bidi",)

The context processor defines the following template variables:

  • LANGUAGE_DIRECTION: Direction of current language (ltr or rtl)
  • LANGUAGE_START: Start of language layout (right for RTL, left for LTR)
  • LANGUAGE_END – End of language layout (left for RTL, right for LTR)
  • LANGUAGE_MARKER – Language marker entity (‏ for RTL, ‎ for LTR)

Filters

add_direction

Adds direction to the element

arguments:

arg

  • rtl_only: Add the direction only in case of a right-to-left language (default)
  • both: add the direction in both case
  • ltr_only: Add the direction only in case of a left-to-right language

{{image_name|add_direction}} when image_name is ‘start_arrow.png’ results in ‘start_arrow_rtl.png’ in case of RTL language, and ‘start_arrow.png’ or ‘start_arrow_ltr.png’ depends on arg value.
