ljust Filter

Formatting

Argument: n (required) – The width of the field in number of characters, in which to justify the value.

Documentation

Left justifies a value by padding it with whitespace on the right.

Variable

company = 'Webucator'

Template

{{ "company|ljust:20" }}

Result

"Webucator           "

In a browser, whitespace is condensed, so the output would be:

"Webucator "

Commentary

As whitespace is condensed by default in HTML pages, alignment filters will not affect the output unless the text is within a pre element or CSS is used to prevent whitespace from being condensed. However, Django can be used to create non-HTML documents as well. In such documents, formatting with whitespace might make more sense.


Did we get something wrong? Is there a use case for the ljust filter that we should add? Please let us know.
