A simple Tag to implement Feather Icons in Django

Project description

Django Feather

A simple Tag ({% icon "name" %}) to implement Feather Icons in Django.


Install django-feather using pip and put it into your INSTALLED_APPS:

pip install django-feather

    # ...
    # ...


After installation, the tag can be used just like any other tag:

{% load icon %}

<p>Using a string {% icon "coffee" class="css-class" height="8" width="8" %}</p>
<p>Using a variable {% icon self.icon class="css-class" height="8" width="8" %}</p>

The icon tag will simply take the SVG source from the Feather project, apply additional attributes and return the SVG tag.


django-feather does not read the .svg files each time an icon is rendered. Instead, all the icons are written to a .py file upon build, just like the JavaScript library.
However, other than the JavaScript library, icons are rendered on the server side. This avoids having to call feather.replace() after the page has loaded.
