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.

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)
