This library aims to make it a breeze in the Django template language.

  • Python 2.7+,3.4+
  • Django 1.11+

Add django_inlinecss to your settings.py:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
        'django.contrib.auth',
        'django.contrib.webdesign',
        'django.contrib.contenttypes',
        '...',
        '...',
        '...',
        'django_inlinecss')

Step 3: Use the templatetag

  1. Place your CSS file somewhere staticfiles can find it
  2. Create your template:
{% load inlinecss %}
{% inlinecss "css/extra-padding.css" %}
    <html>
        <body>
            <div class='lots-o-padding'>
