django-snippets 0.1.2

Provides a templatetag for Django acting as an {% include %}, but the template content comes from database
django-snippets is a Django application that provides a templatetag called include_snippet for Django projects.


Once you've created some instances of the snippets.models.Snippet model, you can load it it using the snippets templatetag-library:

{% load snippets ... %}


{% get_comment_list for entry as comment_list %}
{% if comment_list %}
 < h2 >Comments< /h2 >
 < ol >{% include_snippet "comment_list" %}< /ol >
{% endif %}

This way you can include a snippet with the name "comment_list". If you have the name of a snippet in a template variable, leave out the quotes.

comment_list will be rendered as a Django template. This mean that you can use {% for %}, {% if %} and others template tags.

This tag also accepts an optional argument where you can specify the number of seconds, the that snippet should be cached:

{% include_snippet "comment_list" 3600 %}

If you use a snippet that doesn't exist, ``include_snippet`` will insert the value of the SNIPPET_STRING_IF_INVALID setting, which is '' (the empty string) by default.
