A small collection of template tags for debugging and introspecting templates

Project description

A small collection of template tags for debugging and introspecting Django templates

Documentation

Requirements

None, but the latest ipdb is highly recommended.

Installation

django-template-debug is available on pypi, so the easiest way to install it is using pip:

pip install django-template-debug

Setup

Add ‘template_debug’ to the INSTALLED_APPS iterable in your settings file. For example:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'template_debug',
    ...
)

Add TEMPLATE_DEBUG = True to your local or development settings if it is not already set.

  • Unless TEMPLATE_DEBUG is set to True, the django-template-debug templates will return an empty string without doing anything. This behavior prevents your application from calling set_trace() or print in a production environment if django-template-debug template tags are accidentally commited and deployed.

Usage

Add {% load debug_tags %} in any Django template.

The available tags to use are {% set_trace %} {% variables %} {% attributes varname %} and {% details varname %}

See Example Usage docs for more details

Developer Setup

Create a fresh virtualenv and install the test requirements:

mkvirtualenv template-debug
pip install -r requirements/test.txt

Use manage.py in the project directory along with the example.settings file for local testing.

To run unittests using the virtualenv’s Python and Django, use the runtests script. To test all supported versions of Python and Django, run the unittests using tox.
