Django navbar package

Project description


Code style: black coverage report

A code based navbar with great ambitions.



django-bootstrap-navbar lets you create a bootstrap 4 navbar with a Python class. It then takes care of setting the active class on the appropriate link based on the current path.


The library is available on PyPi.

pip install django-bootstrap-navbar

Once you have created a navbar class there are two ways of making it available in your template context:

  1. Using the provided context processor
BOOTSTRAP_NAVBAR = "showcase.navbar:ExampleNavBar"

        "BACKEND": "django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates",
            "context_processors": [
  1. Using the provided mixin
class ContextProcessorView(BootstrapNavBarViewMixin, TemplateView):
    template_name = "index.html"
    navbar_class = AppNavBar

Finally the navbar can be rendered within your templates by calling the navbar.render method.

{{ navbar.render }}

A full example is available within the repo.
