typogrify 2.0.2

Filters to enhance web typography, including support for Django & Jinja templates

Latest Version: 2.0.4

Typogrify provides a set of custom filters that automatically apply various transformations to plain text in order to yield typographically-improved HTML. While often used in conjunction with Jinja and Django template systems, the filters can be used in any environment.

Installation

The following command will install via pip. Pay particular attention to the package name:

pip install typogrify

Alternatively, you can run the following command inside the project's root directory:

python setup.py install

Last but not least, you can simply move the enclosed typogrify folder into your Python path.

Requirements

Python 2.3 and above is supported, including Python 3. The only dependency is SmartyPants, a Python port of a project by John Gruber.

Installing Jinja or Django is only required if you intend to use the optional template filters that are included for those frameworks.

Usage

The filters can be used in any environment by importing them from typogrify.filters:

from typogrify.filters import typogrify
content = typogrify(content)

For use with Django, you can add typogrify to the INSTALLED_APPS setting of any Django project in which you wish to use it, and then use {% load typogrify_tags %} in your templates to load the filters it provides.

Experimental support for Jinja is in typogrify.templatetags.jinja_filters.

Included filters

amp

Wraps ampersands in HTML with <span class="amp"> so they can be styled with CSS. Ampersands are also normalized to &amp;. Requires ampersands to have whitespace or an &nbsp; on both sides. Will not change any ampersand which has already been wrapped in this fashion.

caps

Wraps multiple capital letters in <span class="caps"> so they can be styled with CSS.

initial_quotes

Wraps initial quotes in <span class="dquo"> for double quotes or <span class="quo"> for single quotes. Works inside these block elements:

  • h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6
  • p
  • li
  • dt
  • dd

Also accounts for potential opening inline elements: a, em, strong, span, b, i.

smartypants

Applies SmartyPants.

typogrify

Applies all of the following filters, in order:

  • amp
  • widont
  • smartypants
  • caps
  • initial_quotes

widont

Based on Shaun Inman's PHP utility of the same name, replaces the space between the last two words in a string with &nbsp; to avoid a final line of text with only one word.

Works inside these block elements:

  • h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6
  • p
  • li
  • dt
  • dd

Also accounts for potential closing inline elements: a, em, strong, span, b, i.
