Django Super Favicon

https://coveralls.io/repos/ZuluPro/django-super-favicon/badge.svg?branch=master&service=github

Django Super Favicon is a project that aiming to replace external solutions like realfavicongenerator.net: Create favicon for all kind of client platform.

Super Favicon does:

  • Creates icons in various size
  • Uploads them in static file storage (or other)
  • Creates HTML headers tags for use them

Why

It could sound useless, but hold a website identity in browsers' favorites or iOS/Android/Windows home screen is a pretty good thing.

I often see that Django dev used to create a view for serve favicon.ico, I think this is summum of bad pratices: File must be served by a dedicated server. I designed this project to use Django Storage API and make generated files deployment agnostic.

There are other Django projects in the same topic:

That's why super ...

Install & usage

pip install django-super-favicon

Add the following things in your settings.py:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'favicon',
    ...
)

Upload them to your storage (by default your filesystem):

./manage.py generate_favicon your_icon.png

And put this in your templates:

{% load favicon %}
...
<head>
...
{% get_favicons %}
</head>

It will produce something like:

<link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" href="/static/favicon-152.png">

<meta name="msapplication-TileColor" content="#FFFFFF">
