Native, Pythonic Templatetags for Django

Project description

:Version: 0.5


pip install django-native-tags==0.5.3

Django Native Tags is a way of making the creation of template tags stupidly simple.
Tags are "native" because there is a much closer relationship between the tag in the template and a Python function behind the scenes.
The app abstracts the work needed to parse out the templatetag syntax into a useable form for a Python function.
For example:

Define an arbitrary function in your templatetags::

def add(x, y):
return x + y
add.function = True

Use the function in your template::

{% add 1000 100 as num %}
{{ num|intcomma }}

Which outputs::


Other features of Native Tags:

* Keyword argument parsing
* Quoted strings parsed correctly
* Add templatetags to Django's builtins (no ``{% load %}`` required)
* Auto resolve of template variables
* Universal and per-tag caching
* Straightforward template tag unittesting
* Error tolerant by letting you specify a fallback return value

The real power of the module comes in the contrib add ons which has tons of tags for various uses including
comparisons, regex operations, math operations, and much more. By default it is a functional replacement to `James Bennett`_'s `django-template-utils`_ right out of the box
