#14908 closed (fixed)

Add takes_context parameter to simple_tag decorator

There is no "simple" way for accessing the context in a template tag. The only options are to use an inclusion_tag (which also requires the use of a template) or to create a Node/parser (which is tedious).

To address this, the consensus in (1) is to make simple_tag consistent with inclusion_tag by introducing a takes_context decorator parameter.

Whoops, I forgot to grab the ticket myself, as I was going to work on a patch tomorrow. cdestigter, happy for you to do it, though remember that a patch has to be finalised by this weekend for this to stand a chance to be included in 1.3.
You might find good pointers in the patch I've done for #1105.

julien, it's all yours. I just cc'd myself since I'm keen to see this happen; not intending to write it myself ;)
