- formatting syntax html readability output indentation format tidy templates prettify
- 4 (after 4 ratings)
This is an enhancement of snippet #172. Here I use BeautifulSoup — far more easier to install through pip in a virtualenv, and possibly a bit more maintained — to format and properly indent the rendered HTML from templates.
I also added a check to only tidy contents in a
DEBUG=True environment, regarding high impact on performance while doing so in production.
Last, it's compatible with Django 1.2.x.
