Project description


Django middleware - symply switch template dir


    pip install django-switchtemplatedir


Add 'django-switchtemplatedir.TemplateDirManager.TemplateDirMiddleware'

Add TEMPLATE_DIR_METHOD 'switch' or 'subdomain'

Add TEMPLATE_DIR_SETTINGS dictionary as defoult key named 'default' and list type value. Set first index of the list direction to the folder.

Optional - if need change the files format, set second index of the list '.format'


    TEMPLATE_DIR_METHOD = 'switch'
    TEMPLATE_DIR_SETTINGS = {'default' : [''], 'd' :  ['desktop/'], 'm' : ['mobile/', '.html']}


In this example we use switch method

Key 'defoult' reach to template root folder, 'd' reach to ROOT/desktop folder, 'm' reach to ROOT/mobile and change predetermined in template_name file format to html


Recomended to use SwitchTemplateDir method. Import this method from django-switchtemplatedir.switcher

In add


path and switch with key name of TEMPLATE_DIR_SETTINGS

    from django-switchtemplatedir.switcher import SwitchTemplateDir
    urlpatterns += [ path('somedir/<str:key>', SwitchTemplateDir.as_view()), ]

If set up by example below, then link /somedir/d will switch to 'desktop/' folder

Or use switchTemplateDir function from TemplateDirManager and give argument one of TEMPLATE_DIR_SETTINGS keys
