Django template tags for dealing with pesky whitespaces

Project description


Django template tags which deal with pesky whitespaces!


  • Django 2.x and 3.x
  • Python 3.7, 3.8, 3.9


Install the latest version from PyPI:

$ pip install django-whiteless

Add "whiteless" to INSTALLED_APPS:

    # ...


The library consists of two template tags, {% whiteless %} and {% eof %}. This is how you use them.

Remove all whitespaces

{% whiteless %}
{% endwhiteless %}

Remove leading whitespaces

{% whiteless leading %}
{% endwhiteless %}

Remove trailing whitespaces

{% whiteless trailing %}
{% endwhiteless %}

Remove leading and trailing whitespaces

{% whiteless leading trailing %}
{% endwhiteless %}

Replace whitespaces with a single space

{% whiteless space %}
{% endwhiteless %}

Note that if there are leading or trailing whitespaces in the block, those will also be replaced by a single space. In order to remove leading and trailing whitespaces and replace all other whitespaces with a single space, use:

{% whiteless space leading trailing %}
{% endwhiteless %}

Remove trailing whitespaces at end of file

Hello there!{% eof %}

This is useful if e.g. your project style guide requires all files to end with a newline but that causes issues with your template.

Note that {% eof %} cannot be used inside other tags. It only removes whitespaces that immediately follow itself.


$ poetry shell
$ poetry install
$ pre-commit install  # install git hooks
$ tox  # run tests
