A Django template filter to convert HTML literals into named, decimal, or hexadecimal forms

Project description

PyPI version Build status Documentation status

Django Evade is a Django template filter application to pseudo-randomly convert literal HTML characters into equivalent named, numeric, or hexadecimal HTML character entity references.

Useful for obscuring mailto hyperlinks to prevent spammers from collecting e-mail addresses. Inspired by a Django snippet, but rewritten to use the Format Specification Mini-Language. The result is a more severe form of escape, leading to the name “evade.”


$ pip install django-evade

Add to

    # ...


{% load evade_tags %}

{{ ""|evade }}

One possible result:

Note the use of named (@), decimal (p), hexadecimal lowercase (m), and hexadecimal uppercase (l) forms, and the varying length of zero fills (m, e). Each character entity reference is pseudo-randomized.

Can also be imported as a standalone Python module:

>>> from evade import evade
>>> evade("©")
>>> evade("©")
>>> evade("©")
