Project Description

Django application, implement theming concept, flexible and configurable. Allow theming for host url.


You can install the most recent Django Theming version using pip:

pip install django-theming


NOTE: The following settings should be added to the project file

  1. Add ‘theming’ to INSTALLED_APPS:

    INSTALLED_APPS += ( 'theming', )
  2. Add ‘theming.middleware.ThemingMiddleware’ to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES:

    MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES += ( 'theming.middleware.ThemingMiddleware', )
  1. Add ‘theming.loaders.ThemeLoader’ to TEMPLATE_LOADERS:

    TEMPLATE_LOADERS += ( 'theming.loaders.ThemeLoader', )
  1. Declare THEME_ROOT and MEDIA_ROOT:

    BASE_DIR = os.path.dirname(os.path.dirname(__file__))
    THEME_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'themes')
    MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'media')
  2. Declare MEDIA_URL:

    MEDIA_URL = '/media/'

    THEME_MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join(MEDIA_ROOT, 'themes')
    THEME_MEDIA_URL = os.path.join(MEDIA_URL, 'themes')
  4. Declare host/theme config tuple THEME_CONFIG:

        (r'^(.+\.)?dominio\.pe', 'default'),
        (r'^(.+\.)?test\.pe', 'test'),


It should create a folder themes at the project with the following structure:

| -- themes/
    | -- default/  ** theme name
        | -- templates/
        | -- media/
        |   | -- styles/
        |   | -- scripts/
        |   | -- images/
        | -- metadata.json

NOTE: We use media instead of static for independent assets by theme.

In the file metadata.json it should include information on the theme:

    "slug": "default",
    "name": "Default",
    "description": "Theme Default",
    "author": "Author",
    "version": "1.0"

You can use the template tag theme to refer to the theme assets as follows:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{% theme 'styles/main.css' %}" />

NOTE: The tamplate tag theme will refer to the media/themes/<theme_name> folder, if not find the file in that path, it will search in static/

You can use the command collectthemes to copy all assets of the theme to the location media/:

python collectthemes

- l, --link : Create a symbolic link to each file instead of copying.
- f, --force: Force to overwrite content.
