django-tinycontent 0.5.0

A Django app for managing re-usable blocks of tiny content.

django-tinycontent is a simple Django application for re-usable content blocks, much like django-boxes.

Installation is simple:

pip install django-tinycontent

Add tinycontent to your INSTALLED_APPS.

Usage in templates is simple:

{% load tinycontent_tags %}

{% tinycontent_simple 'content_name' %}

Or, to specify a value if a content block by the given name cannot be found, use:

{% load tinycontent_tags %}

{% tinycontent 'content_name' %}
This will be shown if no matching object is found.
{% endtinycontent %}

The name of the content block can also be a context variable, using both the simple and the complex variants.

Content blocks themselves can be added and edited using Django’s admin interface. If a block with the name given in the template tag cannot be found, either nothing is rendered (if using tinycontent_simple), or the text between tinycontent and endtinycontent is rendered (if using the more complex variant).

To apply custom filters to your content, set TINYCONTENT_FILTER to a dotted path to a callable that takes the raw content and returns the transformed content. You can also set TINYCONTENT_FILTER to be a list of dotted paths to callables, to chain filters together.

django-tinycontent supports all versions of Django from 1.5 to 1.8. Python 2.7, 3.3 and 3.4 are supported.



  • Require at least django-autoslug 1.8.0, to fix a warning about unapplied migrations.


  • Drop support for Django 1.4 (it’s quite hard to support Django 1.4 and 1.9 in a single release - since Django 1.4 requires {% load url from future %}, and Django 1.9 doesn’t support it).
  • Ensure the wheel we upload to PyPI is universal.
  • Forward compatibility for Django 1.9 - remove the {% load url from future %} from tinycontent templates.


  • Forwards compatibility change for Django 1.9 - which will remove the version of importlib bundled with Django. All supported versions of Python (2.7, 3.3 and 3.4) have importlib.


  • Dropped support for Python 2.6.
  • Added a built-in markdown filter - you can use it by setting TINYCONTENT_FILTER to ''.
  • Added the ability to include links to files which you can upload via the admin.
  • Added support for setting TINYCONTENT_FILTER to a list of dotted paths, to allow chaining filters.


  • Added the TINYCONTENT_FILTER setting for controlling the way content is output.
  • Improved testing with Travis (we now test all supported Python versions and Django versions).
