Django template tag to load static files inline with your template.

Project description


Works similar to Django’s static templatetag, but this one includes the file directly in the template, rather than a link to it.

You can additionally post-process the file content using custom ‘encoder’.

Compatibility Matrix:






2.2 (LTS)

3.2 (LTS)



4.2 (LTS)


  1. Put the StaticInlineAppConfig along your apps.

        # ...
  2. Load the template tag and pass a filename as you’d do with a static template tag. You can also post-process the file content. In the example below we encode the content of the mykey.pem file with base64. Several encoders are already built-in, see the Encoder docs.

    {% load staticinline %}
    <style type="text/css">{% staticinline "myfile.css" %}</style>
    My base64 encoded Key: {% staticinline "mykey.pem" encode="base64" cache=True %}
  3. Enjoy the result:

    <style type="text/css">body{ color: red; }</style>
    My base64 encoded Key: LS0tIFN1cGVyIFByaXZhdGUgS2V5IC0tLQo=
