A Django template tag for wrapping a template block in a reusable enclosing template

Project description


A Django template tag for wrapping a template block in a reusable enclosing template.

Provides a block tag called wrapwith which behaves exactly like the built-in include tag, but injects the contents of the block into the included template.

It is intended to make wrapper markup reusable, encouraging you to break your template into "components" which might have a particular enclosing structure but varying contents. It is particularly useful with design systems that provide components (cards, blockquotes, accordians etc) that have reusable structure but arbitrary content.

A toy example: imagine your design includes a box component which has a coloured border, but can contain any other markup inside it.

First, create a wrapper template, wrappers/box.html:

<div style="border: 1px solid {{ bordercol }}">
  {{ wrapped }}

Note the special {{ wrapped }} variable, which will be replaced with your wrapped content.

Then, in your main page template:

{% load wrapwith %}

    <h1>welcome to my page</h1>

    {% wrapwith "wrappers/box.html" with bordercol="red" %}
      <p>this is inside a red box</p>
    {% endwrapwith %}

    {% wrapwith "wrappers/box.html" with bordercol="green" %}
      <p>this is inside a green box</p>
      <p>and here's another paragraph inside the green box</p>
    {% endwrapwith %}

That's it!

Tested on Python 3 with all currently supported Django versions.


pip install django-wrapwith

Then add wrapwith to your INSTALLED_APPS.
