Favicon app for django

Project description

# django-favicon-plus

[![PyPI](https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/django-favicon-plus.svg)](https://pypi.python.org/pypi/django-favicon-plus)

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.

## How to use:
Install django-favicon using PIP.
```shell
pip install django-favicon-plus

pip install git+https://github.com/arteria/django-favicon-plus.git
```

Add app to `INSTALLED_APPS` List in your `settings.py` file, make sure `sites`-app is also installed and a URL is specified in the admin backend

```python
INSTALLED_APPS = (
...
'django.contrib.sites',
...
'favicon',
...
)
```
The default `FAVICON_CONFIG` look like this, if you want something else you can define it in your settings.py. 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.
```python
FAVICON_CONFIG = {
'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],
}
```
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
```html+django
{% load favtags %}

{% placeFavicon %}
```
this will create:
```html
<link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" size ="180x180" href="/media/favicon/fav-180.png"/>
<link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" size ="152x152" href="/media/favicon/fav-152.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.
