Django Markdownify - A Django Markdown filter

Django Markdownify is a template filter to convert Markdown to HTML in Django. Markdown is converted to HTML and sanitized.

Read the full documentation on Read the docs or check out the package on pypi.

Usage

Load the tag inside your template:

{% load markdownify %}

Then you can change markdown to html as follows:

{{ 'text'|markdownify }}

or

{{ somevariable|markdownify }}

Example

{% load markdownify %}
{{'Some *test* [link](#)'|markdownify }}

Is transformed to:

<p>
  Some <em>test</em> <a href="#">link</a>
</p>

The filter is a wrapper around Markdown and Bleach and as such supports their settings. It is possible to define multiple settings for multiple usecases.

For example:

# settings.py

MARKDOWNIFY = {
  "default": {
     "WHITELIST_TAGS": ["a", "p", "h1", ]
  },

  "alternative": {
     "WHITELIST_TAGS": ["a", "p", ],
     "MARKDOWN_EXTENSIONS": ["markdown.extensions.fenced_code", ]
  }
}

And in your templates:

<!-- page1.html -->
{{ mytext|markdownify }} <!-- Uses your default settings -->

<!-- page2.html -->
{{ mytext|markdownify:"alternative" }} <!-- Uses your alternative settings -->
