🤔 For What?

Once upon a time all the other programming languages had a formatter and linter. Css, javascript, python, the c suite, typescript, ruby, php, go, swift, and you know the others. The cool kids on the block.

HTML templates were left out there on their own, in the cold, unformatted and unlinted :( The dirty corner in your repository. Something had to change.

djLint is a community build project to and add consistency to html templates.

✨ How?

Grab it with pip

pip install djlint

Or with the npm experimental install - Note, this requires python and pip to be on your system path.

npm i djlint

Lint your project

djlint . --extension=html.j2 --lint

Check your format

djlint . --extension=html.j2 --check

Fix my format!

djlint . --extension=html.j2 --reformat
