why don't have something like truncatewords_html for chars?
I don't have experience with the Django's source code, so I don't have a patch. But I can try if you want.

Sure; we've added truncatedchars; makes sense that there would be a HTML-sensitive equivalent.

Used truncatewords_html as a guideline, added docs & tests. All tests pass under sqlite. Pull request here:

  • Patch needs improvement set
>>> truncatechars_html('<h1>test</h1>', 5)
u'<h1>t ...</h1>'

Should return u'<h1>te...</h1>'. Truncatewords adds an extra space in front of the ellipsis but truncatechars doesn't.

The above issue should now be fixed. It also appears to have broken truncatechars which I've now fixed

comment:7 Changed 3 years ago by martmatwarne

Actually there still appears to be issues when using html with only one tag pair in it

I have marked this ticket as suitable for a first-time committer attending a Don't be afraid to commit workshop.

The next planned session will be hosted by Cardiff Dev Workshop on Saturday 8th June.

If you want to tackle this ticket before then, or at any time in fact, please don't let the fact that it's assigned to me stop you. Feel free to re-assign it to yourself and do whatever you like to it.

truncatechars_html was incorrectly adding the '...' to text that was under the truncate length but only by 3 or fewer characters:

>>> truncatechars_html('abcd', 4)

I've provided an updated patch here, including an addition to the test:

I've left some comments on the PR for improvement.

  • Cc saturn5971 added
  • Keywords truncatechars added; truncatchars removed

Thanks! I updated my pull request in accord with Timo's suggestions.

To eliminate redundant code between _html_chars and _html_words, I've collapsed them into a single function, _truncate_html. I made the requested documentation changes as well.
