Project description

Build status Coverage PyPI download stats

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, tab sorting, multi-level tab navigations and more.

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