A Django app that provides template tags to easily incorporate smartmenus.

Project description

A Django app that provides template tags to easily incorporate smartmenus (


To get started using django-smartmenus:

  • install it with pip:

    $ pip install django-smartmenus
  • add the app to INSTALLED_APPS. If you are using Django CMS, make sure it’s before menus:

        'menus', #Only if you are using Django CMS


The best way to see how it works is exploring the example project. But for the impatient, all you need to do is:

  • load smartmenus tags in the templates:

    {% load smartmenus_tags %}
  • Call smartmenus template tags where css and js files should show:

    {% smartmenus_css theme %}
    <script src="path/to/jquery"></script>
    {% smartmenus_js %}

    theme is a string based parameter. Out of box, theme can be one of ‘sm-blue’, ‘sm-clean’, ‘sm-mint’ and ‘sm-simple’. If you create a custom theme of your own, please put the theme file under static folder following smartmenus theme folder structure convention, ie. smartmenus/css/theme/theme.css.

  • Render menu html in the templates. Please refer to smartmenus tutorial to see what the html should be.

This app also supports Django CMS:

  • load smartmenus and menu tags in the templates:

    {% load menu_tags smartmenus_tags %}
  • Call Django CMS specific template tags anywhere in the templates:

    {% addtoblock "js" %}<script src="path/to/jquery"></script>{% endaddtoblock %}
    {% smartmenu_bootstrap_cms theme %}

    theme’s usage is the same as above.

  • Render Django CMS menu:

    <ul class="sm theme-class-name">
        {% show_menu 0 100 100 100 %}

    theme-class-name is a string based parameter. Please refer to smartmenus doc regarding possible values. Usually it’s the same as theme name unless it’s a custom theme with different naming conventions.
