A library that enables you to easily build your own tab navigation based on class based views.

Project description

Build status

django-tabination is a lightweight (~50 SLOC) Django 1.4+ library that enables you to easily build your own tab navigation based on class based views.

It supports code based creation of tabs directly in your views, conditional displaying/hiding of a tab, translation of the tab labels, multi-level tab navigations and more.


The docs can be found at


You can install django-tabination directly from pypi using pip:

$ pip install django-tabination

Currently there is no further configuration needed. For more information about setup and usage, please refer to the docs.
