from django.template import Library

register = Library()

@register.filter
def get_range( value ):
  """
    Filter - returns a list containing range made from given value
    Usage (in template):

    <ul>{% for i in 3|get_range %}
      <li>{{ i }}. Do something</li>
    {% endfor %}</ul>

    Results with the HTML:
    <ul>
      <li>0. Do something</li>
      <li>1. Do something</li>
      <li>2. Do something</li>
    </ul>

    Instead of 3 one may use the variable set in the views
  """
  return range( value )

This should be a default filter

for one based, you can add 1 via a list comprehension

return [v + 1 for v in range(value)]

Would it make more sense to call this as_range instead of get_range?

This doesnt work tho:

                {% for x in 3|get_range %}
                    <tr>
                        <td></td>
                        <td></td>
                        <td></td>
                    </tr>
                {% endfor %}

But this works fine:

                {% for x in 3|get_range %}
                    <tr>
                        <td{{ x }}></td>
                        <td></td>
                        <td></td>
                    </tr>
                {% endfor %}
