openexchangerates.org support for django-prices

Project description

openexchangerates.org support for django-prices

from prices import Money
from django_prices_openexchangerates import exchange_currency

converted_price = exchange_currency(Money(10, currency='USD'), 'EUR')
print(converted_price)
# Money('8.84040', currency='EUR')

It will also create additional steps if it cannot convert directly:

from prices import Money
from django_prices_openexchangerates import exchange_currency

converted_price = exchange_currency(Money(10, currency='GBP'), 'EUR')
print(converted_price)
# Money('13.31313588062401085236264978', currency='EUR')

The exchange_currency supports Money, TaxedMoney, MoneyRange and TaxedMoneyRange.

Template filters can be used with django-prices to convert currency, round amounts and display localized amounts in templates:

{% load prices_i18n %}
{% load prices_multicurrency %}

<p>Price: {{ foo.price.gross|in_currency:'USD'|amount }} ({{ foo.price.net|in_currency:'USD'|amount }} + {{ foo.price.tax|in_currency:'USD'|amount }} tax)</p>

pip install django-prices-openexchangerates
