djangobars 0.2.1

An extension to allow Django to use Handlebars templates through the pybars port of Handlebars.js

djangobars

An extension to allow Django to use Handlebars templates through the pybars port of Handlebars.js

Because don’t we all want to use the same templates on the client that we do on the server?

NOTE: This project is very early-stage. Try it out, leave feedback and wishes in the issues. And pull-requests welcome!

Installation

  1. Install djangobars:

    pip install djangobars
    
  2. Add 'djangobars' to your installed applications.

  3. Add a HANDLEBARS_LOADERS value to your settings module. You will probably want:

    HANDLEBARS_LOADERS = (
        'djangobars.template.loaders.filesystem.Loader',
        'djangobars.template.loaders.app_directories.Loader',
    )
    
  4. (optional) Add a HANDLEBARS_DIRS and/or HANDLEBARS_APP_DIRNAMES value to your setting module. By default, djangobars will search in your TEMPLATE_DIRS folder, but you can use the HANDLEBARS_DIRS value to override this behavior. For example, if you want to use both Django templates and Handlebars templates, you may want to keep the two in separate directories.

Usage

Use pretty much just as you would Django’s own built-in templates. Instead of:

from django.shortcuts import render

def my_view(request):
    # View code here...
    return render(request, 'myapp/index.html', {"foo": "bar"},
        content_type="application/xhtml+xml")

do this:

from djangobars.shortcuts import render

def my_view(request):
    # View code here...
    return render(request, 'myapp/handlebar_index.html', {"foo": "bar"},
        content_type="application/xhtml+xml")

And instead of:

from django.views.generic import TemplateView

class MyView (TemplateView):
    template_name = 'myapp/index.html'

do this:

from django.views.generic import TemplateView
from djangobars.response import HandlebarsResponse

class MyView (TemplateView):
    template_name = 'myapp/handlebar_index.html'
    response_class = HandlebarsResponse

Template Tags

You can also include Handlebars templates with a Django template tag:

{% load djangobars %}

{% include_handlebars "handlebars_template_name.html" %}

The current template context will be carried over into the Handlebars template.

0.2.0

  • Update the installation instructions.

0.2.0

  • New dependencies on pymeta3 and pybars3.
  • Include partials of other templates in the project.

0.1.5

  • Allow arbitrary objects as context for templates.

0.1.4

  • Fix a bug in the app directories template loader where the path names were calling decode in Python 2 and 3.

0.1.3

  • Change the installation details

    Pip 1.5 makes it difficult to specify installation sources outside of the PyPI. Also, this is better motivation to get these packages officially on PyPI.

0.1.2

  • Depend on specific forks of pymeta and pybars

0.1.1

  • First Release
