Mimetypes icons from the Tango project and template tag

Project description

The collection of mimetypes icons from the Tango Icon Library project, and a template tag to include them.


In your settings:


Then in your templates:

{% load mimetypes %}

<img src="{% icon "image/jpeg" %}">

<img src="{% icon "image/jpeg" "32x32" %}">

<img src="{% icon "image/jpeg" size %}">

<img src="{% icon mimetype %}">

<a style="background-image: url({% icon mimetype "16x16" %})">

<img src="{% icon mimetype size %}">

{% icon "application/pdf" as pdf_icon %}

{% icon "application/pdf" "48x48" as pdf_icon %}

{% icon "application/pdf" size as pdf_icon %}

{% icon mimetype as pdf_icon %}

{% icon mimetype "32x32" as pdf_icon %}

{% icon mimetype size as pdf_icon %}

Or obviously you can directly link to the files in the static directory, e.g. if you want to reference them in a static CSS.


A minimal Django project is shipped to run the test suite. Try make coverage (100% at the time of this writing).
