This app is a generic way to provide filters that convert text into html.

The documentation is available at


Download and install the package from the python package index (pypi):

$ pip install django-markup

Note that django-markup ships with some filters ready to use, but the more complex packages such as Markdown or ReStructuredText are not part of the code. Please refer the docs which packages are used for the built-in filter.

An alternative is to install django-markup with all filter dependencies right away. Do so with:

$ pip install django-markup[all_filter_dependencies]

Then add it to the INSTALLED_APPS list:


Use it in the template:

{% load markup_tags %}
{{ the_text|apply_markup:"markdown" }}

Or in Python code:

from django_markup.markup import formatter
formatter('Some *Markdown* text.', filter_name='markdown')


To run the testsuite install the project with pipenv and run it:

% pipenv install
$ pipenv run ./

You can also test against a variation of Django and Python versions using tox:

$ tox
You can’t perform that action at this time.
