Project description

django-fa disclaimer

This package is basically a `django-fontawesome <>`_ fork with support of latest django, uploaded to PyPi.
Reason of creating this repo was sadly ignored `merge request <>`_.
All the credits goes to authors of source repository and merge request.


- Select2 (included)
- JQuery (uses django's jquery in admin panel)

By default, django-fontawesome ships with and uses the lastest fontawesome release.
You can configure django-fontawesome to use another release/source/cdn by specifying::

# default uses locally shipped version at 'fontawesome/css/font-awesome.min.css'
FONTAWESOME_CSS_URL = '//' # absolute url
FONTAWESOME_CSS_URL = 'myapp/css/fontawesome.min.css' # relative url

You can also tell it the fontawesome prefix, which as of right now is 'fa', using::

FONTAWESOME_PREFIX = 'bg' # default is 'fa'

Installation / Usage

0. Install via pip::

pip install django-fa

1. Add 'fontawesome' to your installed apps setting like this::


2. Import and use the ``IconField``::

from fontawesome.fields import IconField

class Category(models.Model):
icon = IconField()

Here's what the widget looks like in the admin panel:


3. You can then render the icon in your template like this::

{% for category in categories.all %}
{% if category.icon %}
{{ category.icon.as_html }}
{% endif %}
{% endfor %}

4. django-fontawesome ships with two template tags, ``fontawesome_stylesheet`` and ``fontawesome_icon``.
- the former inserts a stylesheet link with a pre-configured href according to the ``FONTAWESOME_CSS_URL`` setting
- the latter renders icons, and accepts the following optional keywords arguments: large, spin, fixed, li, border: (true/false), rotate: (90/180/270), title: (string)
- you can also colorize an icon using the ``color='red'`` keyword argument to the ``fontawesome_icon`` template tag

- example usage::

{% load fontawesome %}

{% fontawesome_stylesheet %}

{% fontawesome_icon 'user' color='red' %}

{% fontawesome_icon 'star' large=True spin=True %}

<ul class="fa-ul">
<li> {% fontawesome_icon 'home' rotate=90 li=True %} One</li>
