Description

This patch adds html entities decoding function to utils.html

Description

Replaces HTML entities (name, decimal and hexadecimal) with unicode equivalents.

Ampersands, quotes and carets are not replaced by default.

Usage

decode_entities can be used to normalize and store user input from a js html editor for example.
If you need to cut a string that could contain HTML entities, you can decode it before the cut without the fear of cutting through an entity.

Examples

>>> from django.utils.html import decode_entities
>>> html = u'&lt;D&eacute;j&agrave; &#9001;&gt;'
>>> decode_entities(html)
u'&lt;D\xe9j\xe0 \u2329&gt;'
>>> decode_entities(html, decode_all=True)
u'<D\xe9j\xe0 \u2329>'

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is a good candidate for a custom template tag in a third-party app or library, but it's a bit too special case for Django proper.
