Project description

Django Structured Data PyPI

Template tags to assist in adding structured metadata to views and models.

Install

  1. Add "structured_data" to your INSTALLED_APPS:
INSTALLED_APPS = [
    ...
    'structured_data',
]

Use

In models

Define a structured_data property on your models. This is written in a standard JSON-LD format. Included below is a complicated example.

    @property
    def structured_data(self):
        url = SITE_URL + self.get_absolute_url()
        data = {
            '@type': 'BlogPosting',
            'headline': self.title,
            'author': {
                '@type': 'Person',
                'name': self.author
            },
            'datePublished': self.created.strftime('%Y-%m-%d'),
            'dateModified': self.modified.strftime('%Y-%m-%d'),
            'url': url,
            'mainEntityOfPage': {
                '@type': 'WebPage',
                '@id': url
            },
        }
        if self.image:
            data['image'] = SITE_URL + self.image.url

        return data

In templates

Use the json_ld_for template tag to render your structured data as JSON-LD.

{% load jsonld %}
{% json_ld_for post %}

A second template tag, og_for, is also included. This attempts to translate your JSON-LD data to Open Graph tags that can be read by Facebook, Twitter, Telegram and more.

{% load opengraph %}
{% og_for post %}

A third template tag, meta_for, will render the description field from your JSON-LD data as a standard HTML meta description tag.

{% load meta %}
{% meta_for post %}
