A simple Django form template tag to work with Materializecss

Project description

# materialize-css-form
Materializecss for Django Form

A simple Django template tag to work with [Materializecss](

## Install

pip install django-materializecss-form


[on pypi](
[on GitHub](



Add Materializecss to your project:

In your base.html:


{% block css %}
<link href="" rel="stylesheet">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" integrity="sha256-qj3p6P1fJIV+Ndv7RW1ovZI2UhOuboj9GcODzcNFIN8=" crossorigin="anonymous" />
{% endblock css %}



<body >

{% block javascript %}

<script src="" integrity="sha256-SrBfGi+Zp2LhAvy9M1bWOCXztRU9Ztztxmu5BcYPcPE=" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>


// Initialize materialize data picker
$('.datepicker').datepicker({'format': 'yyyy-mm-dd'});



{% endblock javascript %}



## Usage

Use it like this, simple.

{% load materializecss %}

### All the form

{{ form|materializecss }}

### Individual field

{{ form.<<field name>> | materializecss }}

### Custom size (default is 's12')

{{ form|materializecss:'m6' }}

### Icons support
This is most useful for adding a descriptive icon when you are creating a custom layout by building the form one field at a time. Substitue FIELD_NAME below with one of the field names from your form.
{{ form.FIELD_NAME|materializecss:'s12 m6, icon=person' }}
{{ form.FIELD_NAME|materializecss:'custom_size=s12 m6, icon=person' }}

### Note about `DateTimeField`
Input field is rendered as a *datetime-local* type, this lets the user easily enter both a date and a time. As this field requires ISO-8601 format, your main project settings need to include the ISO format in order for the form to interpret this field valid:
from django.conf.global_settings import DATETIME_INPUT_FORMATS

# ISO 8601 datetime format to accept html5 datetime input values
DATETIME_INPUT_FORMATS += ["%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S", "%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M"]
