Django App for adding a Facebook like button

Project description

django-like-button makes it easy to use a facebook like button in your django application. You just need to do the following.


Documentation can now be found in ReadTheDocs here:


  1. Install django-like-button using easy_setup or pip:

    pip install django-like-button
  2. add like_button to your INSTALLED_APPS in your django settings file:

        # all
        # other
        # apps
  3. Add “FACEBOOK_APP_ID” setting to your django settings file with your facebook application Id.


    FACEBOOK_APP_ID = "your appID"
    FACEBOOK_SHOW_SEND = "true"   # or "false, default is "true"
    FACEBOOK_LIKE_WIDTH = "450"   # "numeric value for width", default is 450
    FACEBOOK_SHOW_FACES = "true"  # or "false, default is "true"
    FACEBOOK_FONT = "font"        # default is "arial"
  4. Add the template tag code into your base template before the body tag.

    In the template, in which you want to add button load tags:

    {% load like_button %}

    Where you need the like button:

    {% like_button_tag %}

    At the bottom of the page before the </body> tag put this (you only need to do this once):

    {% like_button_js_tag %}

5. Add the url into your urls file. This tries to address the issue identified with facebooks like button here:


url(r'', include('like_button.urls')),
