Project description


Django favicon plus is a simple django app which allows you to upload a image and it renders a wide variety for html link tags to display the favicon. These different tags are used for bookmark links on mobile devices or they appear if you favorite a website in your browser.

This version is a fork of the original version from arteria GmbH due to lack of maintenance.

How to use:

Install django-favicon using PIP.

pip install django-favicon-plus-reloaded
pip install git+

Add app to INSTALLED_APPS List in your file, make sure sites-app is also installed, a URL is specified in the admin backend and you specify your site in with SITE_ID = <your-site-id-here>.


The default FAVICON_CONFIG look like this, if you want something else you can define it in your The key of the dictionary is the value for the rel attribute of the link tag, while the list in the value are the sizes for the size attribute and the image resizing.

    'shortcut icon': [16 ,32 ,48 ,128, 192],
    'touch-icon': [196],
    'icon': [196],
    'apple-touch-icon': [57, 72, 114, 144, 180],
    'apple-touch-icon-precomposed': [57, 72, 76, 114, 120, 144, 152,180],

Please make sure you have specified a MEDIA_URL in and your root urlconf looks like this:

urlpatterns = [
] + static(settings.MEDIA_URL, document_root=settings.MEDIA_ROOT)

You can also provide a FAVICON_PATH in your to specify the folder name of your favicon folder. The default is favicon

Upload an image in the admin backend --> all the size will be created, its best to take a larger base favicon.

Use the templatetag in your base.html

{% load favtags %}
{% place_favicon %}

this will create:

<link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="144x144" href="/images/apple-touch-icon-144x144.png">
<link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="114x114" href="/images/apple-touch-icon-114x114.png">

<link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" sizes="57x57" href="/images/apple-touch-icon-57x57.png">

Android versions 1.5 and 1.6 will read the second tag (with "-precomposed"), and versions 2.1 and newer will read the first tag.

Google's specifications say that you should use 48x48 pixel PNGs, but you can use a large image (128x128), like Google does for its own apps.
