Generate diagrams showing relationships between templates in Django projects

Project description

Generate diagrams showing relationships between templates in Django projects


The full documentation is at


Install django-template_tree:

pip install django_template_tree

Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS:


Add django-template_tree’s URL patterns:

from template_tree import urls as template_tree_urls
from django import settings
if settings.DEBUG:
    urlpatterns += [
        url(r'^__tt__/', include('template_tree.urls', namespace='template_tree')),


Displays a collapsible tree diagram showing the hierarchy of templates used by a Django application.


Nodes can be collapsed and expanded, by clicking on them.


Apps can be filtered out of the tree, using the ‘exclude_app’ querystring parameter, thus:


By default, admin is excluded, so http://localhost:8000/__tt__/ is equivalent to http://localhost:8000/__tt__/?exclude_app=admin

In order to show the admin app as well, you will need to ‘unexclude’ it thus: http://localhost:8000/__tt__/?exclude_app=

Visiting the template_tree url, requesting an application/json response will return json data compatible with d3 hierarchies, so you can roll your own diagrams.
