django-view-breadcrumbs Build Status Codacy Badge PyPI version

This extends django-bootstrap-breadcrumbs providing generic breadcrumb mixin classes.

Requires adding {% breadcrumb $label $viewname [*args] [**kwargs] %} to only the base template.


In the base.html template simply add the render_breadcrumbs tag and any template that inherits the base should have breadcrumbs included. i.e


{% load django_bootstrap_breadcrumbs %}

{% block breadcrumbs %}
    {% render_breadcrumbs %}
{% endblock %}

And your create.html.

{% extends 'base.html' %}

Breadcrumb mixin classes provided.

  • BaseBreadcrumbMixin - Base view requires a crumbs class property.
  • CreateBreadcrumbMixin - For create views Home \ Posts \ Add Post
  • DetailBreadcrumbMixin - For detail views Home \ Posts \ Post 1
  • ListBreadcrumbMixin - For list views Home \ Posts
  • UpdateBreadcrumbMixin - For Update views Home \ Posts \ Post 1 \ Update Post 1


$ pip install django-view-breadcrumbs

Add app to your INSTALLED_APPS



django-view-breadcrumbs includes generic mixins that can be added to a class based view.

Using the generic breadcrumb mixin each breadcrumb will be added to the view dynamically and can be overridden by providing a crumbs property.

Sample crumbs: Home \ Posts \ Test - Post

NOTE: All url config should use a pattern view_name=model_verbose_name_{action} i.e view_name=post_detail for detail view.

Actions include:

  • "list" - ListView
  • "change" - UpdateView
  • "detail" - DetailView

In your

  urlpatterns = [
      path('posts/<slug:slug>', views.PostDetail.as_view(), name='post_detail'),

from django.views.generic import DetailView
from view_breadcrumbs import DetailBreadcrumbMixin

class PostDetail(DetailBreadcrumbMixin, DetailView):
    model = Post
    template_name = 'app/post/detail.html'

All crumbs use the home root path \ as the base this can be excluded by specifying add_home = False

Sample crumbs: Posts

from django.views.generic import ListView
from view_breadcrumbs import ListBreadcrumbMixin

class PostList(ListBreadcrumbMixin, ListView):
    model = Post
    template_name = 'app/post/list.html'
    add_home = False

Can also override the view breadcrumb by specifying a list of tuples [(Label, view path)].

Custom crumbs: Home \ My Test Breadcrumb

URL conf.

urlpatterns = [
   path('my-test-list-view/', views.TestView.as_view(), name='test_list_view'),
   path('my-test-detail-view/<int:pk>/', views.TestView.as_view(), name='test_detail_view'),

from django.urls import reverse
from django.views.generic import ListView
from view_breadcrumbs import ListBreadcrumbMixin

class TestView(ListBreadcrumbMixin, ListView):
    model = TestModel
    template_name = 'app/test/test-list.html'
    crumbs = [('My Test Breadcrumb', reverse('test_list_view'))]  # OR reverse_lazy


class TestView(ListBreadcrumbMixin, ListView):
    model = TestModel
    template_name = 'app/test/test-list.html'

    def crumbs(self):
        return super(TestView, self).crumbs + [
            ( , reverse('test_detail_view', kwargs={'pk':})
You can’t perform that action at this time.
