Django app for determining site section by request.

Project Description

Django Section

Django app for determining site section by request.


  1. Add section.context_processors.section to your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS setting:

        ...other context processors...,
  2. Add SECTIONS setting to your settings file in the form:

    # Tuple of dictionaries used to match URL pattern names to site sections.
    # example: ({'name': '<section name>', 'matching_pattern_names': ('<url_name1>', '<url_name2>')},)
    SECTIONS = (
        {'name': 'home', 'matching_pattern_names': ('home',)},


If you’re using generic views or RequestContext you’ll now automagically have a section variable added to context and available in your templates containing the value of name as defined for the current view in your SECTIONS setting.

NOTE: If the current path can not be resolved to a defined section, the first section as defined in the SECTION settings is returned. This allows you to setup a global fallback section, i.e. home.
