- filter colorize
- 2 (after 2 ratings)
I had a need to colorize the nicks for the new DjangoBot Logger. Instead of managing a collection of names and corresponding colors we decided it would be more simple to just "hash" the nickname using a colorize filter. This causes the same nickname to always appear in the same color.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
from django import template register = template.Library() def do_colorize(value): if not value: return '' result = sum([ord(c) for c in value]) return "#%X" % result register.filter('colorize', do_colorize)
