django-templates-i18n

App provides ability to store templates in database and localize it using django-modeltranslation app. It is useful if you need to change template content too often and you don't want to recompile all ugettext messages all the times. It is also suitable for email templates.

Tested on Django 1.4.5.

Requirements

  • Django
  • django-modeltranslation

Installation

  1. Install python library using pip: pip install django-templates-i18n

  2. Add templates_i18n to INSTALLED_APPS in your Django settings file

  3. Sync and migrate your database

  4. Specify desired languages in your Django settings file:

    from django.utils.translation import gettext
    
    LANGUAGE_CODE = 'en'
    LANGUAGES = (
        ('en', gettext('English')),
        ('de', gettext('German')),
    )
    
  5. Run sync_translation_fields and update_translation_fields commands (from modeltranslation app)

Usage

You can pass it to template renderer as follows:

from django.http import HttpResponse
from django.template import Template, Context
from django.views.generic import View

from templates_i18n.models import Template_i18n


class MyView(View):
    def dispatch(self, request, *args, **kwargs):
        template_i18n = Template_i18n.objects.get(machine_name='my-template')
        template = Template(template_i18n.content)
        context = Context({'user': request.user})
        return HttpResponse(template.render(context))

or you can use it to send emails as well:

from django.core.mail import send_mail
from django.template import Template, Context

from templates_i18n.models import Template_i18n


def dispatch(self, request, *args, **kwargs):
    template_i18n = Template_i18n.objects.get(machine_name='my-template')
    template = Template(template_i18n.content)
    context = Context({'user': request.user})
    message = template.render(context)
    send_mail('Subject here', message, 'from@example.com', ['to@example.com'], fail_silently=False)
