Django Active Link

Updates https://travis-ci.org/valerymelou/django-active-link.svg?branch=master

The simplest way to highlight active links in your Django app.

Documentation

The full documentation is at https://django-active-link.readthedocs.io.

Quick start

Install Django Active Link:

pip install django-active-link

Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'active_link',
    ...
)

To use the active_link template tag you need to load active_link_tags templatetags library:

{% load active_link_tags %}

To add an active CSS class to a link when the request path matches a given view just do something like this.

<a href="{% url 'view-name' %}" class="{% active_link 'view-name' %}">Menu item</a>

You can even add the active class when the request path matches multiple views. Just pass the view names separated by a double pipe (||) as first argument to the active_link tag.

<a href="{% url 'view-name' %}" class="{% active_link 'view-name || view-sub-name' %}">Menu Item</a>

You can also use a custom CSS class:

<a href="{% url 'view-name' %}" class="{% active_link 'view-name' 'custom-class' %}">Menu item</a>

or:

<a href="{% url 'view-name' %}" class="{% active_link 'view-name' css_class='custom-class' %}">Menu item</a>

By default active_link will not perform a strict match. If you want to add the active class only in case of a strict match pass the strict argument to the tag:

<a href="{% url 'view-name' %}" class="{% active_link strict=True %}">Menu item</a>

Replace view-name with the name of your view (including namespaces).

Settings

You can override the default active class and strict mode with the settings ACTIVE_LINK_CSS_CLASS and ACTIVE_LINK_STRICT.

Key Description Default Value
ACTIVE_LINK_CSS_CLASS Active class to use. active
ACTIVE_LINK_STRICT Designates whether to perform a strict match or not. False

For more usage examples, please check the full documentation at https://django-active-link.readthedocs.io.

IMPORTANT: Django Active Link requires that the current request object is available in your template's context. This means you must be using a RequestContext when rendering your template, and django.core.context_processors.request must be in your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS setting. See https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/templates/api/#subclassing-context-requestcontext for more information.
