pluralize Filter

String Most Useful

Argument: suffix (Optional) ā€“ the suffix to use for pluralization. Default is s.


If the value is not 1, '1', or an object of length 1, the pluralize filter outputs an ā€œsā€ or the value of the suffix argument if one is used.


classes = {
    'Python': [
        'Intro Python', 'Advanced Python', 'Data Science', 'Django'
    'Databases': [
        'Intro PostgreSQL', 'Intro MySQL', 'Intro SQL Server', 'Intro Oracle'
    'Web': [
        'HTML', 'CSS', 'JavaScript'
    'XML': [
        'Intro XML'


  {% for category, titles in classes.items %}
      {{ category }}: {{ titles|length }}
      class{{ titles|pluralize:"es" }}
  {% endfor %}


  <li>Python: 4 classes</li>
  <li>Databases: 4 classes</li>
  <li>Web: 3 classes</li>
  <li>XML: 1 class</li>


Super useful. Much easier and cleaner than using conditional expressions to decide when to pluralize a word.

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