Django app for managing Google Analytics and Site Verification codes.

Django app for managing Google Analytics and Site Verification codes.


In your virtualenv just type:

$ pip install django-google-tools


In Django 1.6 the sites framework is disabled by default, for enable the sites framework in Django 1.6 follow the steps 1, 2 and 3:

  1. Add ‘django.contrib.sites’ to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.

  2. Define a SITE_ID setting:

    SITE_ID = 1
  3. Run in your shell:

    $ ./ syncdb
  4. Add googletools to your INSTALLED_APPS:

  5. Run in your shell:

    $ ./ syncdb

Or if you are using South:

$ ./ migrate

If you have in your settings DEBUG=True googletools will not render anything because this library is inteded mostly to use on production sites, if you want to change this behavior you can set GOOGLETOOLS_ENABLED=True in your settings file. Just for clarification it is defined like this:


This means, by default googletools will be enabled when DEBUG=False.


Go to the admin interface. When correctly installed, you will find the Googletools app. There you can manage your Google Analytics and Site Verification codes.


In order to use the googletools in your templates you’ll have to load the templatetags.

{% load googletools %}

Use {% analytics_code %} for inserting your Analytics code.

Use {% site_verification_code %} for inserting your site verification code.

Templatetags will return an empty string if they are not configured for the current site.

The template should look like:

{% load googletools %}
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <meta name="description" content="..." />
        {% site_verification_code %}

        <link rel="stylesheet" href="/static/css/style.min.css">

        {% analytics_code %}
