Absolute URLs tools for django

Django Absolute

Django Absolute provides context processors and template tags to use full absolute URLs in templates.

Installation

You can install Django Absolute with pip:

pip install django-absolute

or with easy_install:

easy_install django-absolute

Add absolute to your settings.INSTALLED_APPS.

Context processor

Add absolute.context_processors.absolute to your settings.TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS. Django Absolute context processor depends on request context processor:

from django.conf import global_settings

TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = global_settings.TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS + (
    'django.core.context_processors.request',
    'absolute.context_processors.absolute',
)

Then you can access the following variables in your templates:

  • ABSOLUTE_ROOT: full absolute root URL (without trailing slash) based on incoming request
  • ABSOLUTE_ROOT_URL: full absolute root URL (with trailing slash) based on incoming request
  • SITE_ROOT: full absolute root URL (without trailing slash) based on current Django Site
  • SITE_ROOT_URL: full absolute root URL (with trailing slash) based on current Django site

Template tags

Django absolute provide 2 template tags:

  • absolute: acts like url but provide a full URL based on incoming request.
  • site: acts like url but provide a full URL based on current Django Site.

To use theses template tags, you need to load the absolute template tag library.

{% load absolute %}

{% url index %}
{% absolute index %}
{% site index %}

These template tags have exactly the same syntax as url, including the “as” syntax:

{% absolute index as the_url %}
{{ the_url }}

If you use Django 1.5, you need to use the “new-style” url syntax (quoted parameters):

{% load absolute %}

{% url "index" %}
{% absolute "index" %}
{% site "index" %}

{% absolute "index" as the_url %}
{{ the_url }}

If you want to match the “new-style” syntax in Django < 1.5 you need to load absolute_future instead (same behavior as {% load url from future %}).

{% load url from future %}
{% load absolute_future %}

{% url "index" %}
{% absolute "index" %}
{% site "index" %}

{% absolute "index" as the_url %}
{{ the_url }}

For more informations, see the Django 1.5 release notes.
