A lightweight package for handling menus and breadcrumbs in your django project

Project description

Note: this package is still in beta. It has been successfully used in a few projects of my own. However, API may be subject to backward incompatible changes until the first major version is released.

Django-navutils is a lightweight package for handling menu and breadcrumbs inside your django project.


  • No database involved (unless you want it): menus and breadcrumbs are plain old python code
  • Highly customizable
  • Conditionnal menu items display: you want to show a menu link to authenticated users only ? Anonymous ? Staff members ? A custom criteria ? You’re covered !
  • i18n-friendly: you can rely on usual django translation mechanisms
  • Unlimited menus
  • Semi-automatic current menu node detection


  • Python >= 2.7 or >= 3.3
  • Django >= 1.7

The menu system may be integrated in any project, but the breadcrumbs part requires that you use class-based views.


Package is available on pip and can be installed via pip install django-navutils.

You’ll also have to add navutils to your settings.INSTALLED_APPS

Also add the following to settings.CONTEXT_PROCESSORS:

    # ...
