A simple Django templatetag for rendering icons from ProPublica's awesome StateFace font project.


Setup
=====

Get the StateFace font from ProPublica and install it on your webserver.

    http://propublica.github.com/stateface/
    
Define a @font-face declaration and CSS class something like:

    @font-face {
        font-family: 'StateFaceRegular';
        src: url('<YOUR_PATH_HERE>/stateface-regular-webfont.eot');
        src: url('<YOUR_PATH_HERE>/stateface-regular-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
             url('<YOUR_PATH_HERE>/stateface-regular-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
             url('<YOUR_PATH_HERE>/stateface-regular-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
             url('<YOUR_PATH_HERE>/stateface-regular-webfont.svg#StateFaceRegular') format('svg');
        font-weight: normal;
        font-style: normal;
    }

    i.stateface {font-family: 'StateFaceRegular'; font-style: normal;}
    
You can adjust the `templates/stateface/stateface_icon.html` as you see fit, to change the CSS class, use a different HTML element to contain the shape, whatever.

Add django-stateface to your INSTALLED_APPS, or drop the `templates` and `templatetags` directories into one of your existing apps.


Usage
=====

In your Django templates, render a state shape icon by feeding this tag with a string (state name, postal code or AP abbreviation) or a context variable.

    {% render_stateface_icon 'Washington' %}
    {% render_stateface_icon 'WA' %}
    {% render_stateface_icon 'Wash.' %}
    {% render_stateface_icon restaurant.city.state.abbr %}
