django-statictemplate 2.0

This project aims at providing a compromise between dynamic error pages for Django (that use template tags etc and therefore potentially error too) and having to write static error pages by hand.

This project aims at providing a compromise between dynamic error pages for Django (that use template tags etc and therefore potentially error too) and having to write static error pages by hand.

It does so by providing a management command that can be invoked to turn a dynamic Django template into a static HTML page with no template tags whatsoever in it.

Note that this means that every time you change your error pages, you need to re-run this script. Ideally this is part of your deploy process.

Installation

pip install django-statictemplate inside your virtualenv.

Add statictemplate to your INSTALLED_APPS.

Configuration

django-statictemplate does not require any configuration. by default.

By default django-statictemplate overrides the configured middlewares for enhanced compatibility and to avoid incompatibilities.

However this may not be always feasible: if you need a specific set of middlewares to be loaded set:

STATICTEMPLATE_OVERRIDE_MIDDLEWARE = False

in you settings files.

Please note that django-statictemplate has not been tested with every possible middleware, thus you may encounter failures and strange behaviors especially fi you use middlewares that changes the response type.

Usage

python manage.py statictemplate dynamic_500.html > 500.html

or

python manage.py statictemplate dynamic_500.html -f 500.html

The management command renders a template given by name (standard Django template name resolution applies) and writes the output to stdout or to a file.

Arguments

  • template: standard django template name to render
  • language: sets the client django_language cookie to render page in the given language
  • extra_request: extra parameters injected in the request. Parameters must be serialized in querystring format (e.g.: 'variable=value&variable=value'; please note the single quote to protect ampersand &).

Options

  • -f, --file: file destionation for command output
