django-meta has a few configuration options that allow you to customize it. Two of them are required: META_SITE_PROTOCOL and META_SITE_DOMAIN. By default, if they are unset, an ImproperlyConfigured exception will be raised when dealing with url and image properties. You can either set them, or overload the Meta class’ get_domain and get_protocol methods (see Meta object section).


INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: as of version 2.0 django-meta has no longer supports Google+, basic support has been introduced.


Defines the protocol used on your site. This should be set to either 'http' or 'https'. Default is None.


Domain of your site. The Meta objects can also be made to use the Django’s Sites framework as well (see Meta object and META_USE_SITES sections). Default is None.


The default og:type property to use site-wide. You do not need to set this if you do not intend to use the OpenGraph properties. Default is None.


The site name to use in og:site_name property. Althoug this can be set per view, we recommend you set it globally. Defalt is None.


Iterable of extra keywords to include in every view. These keywords are appended to whatever keywords you specify for the view, but are not used at all if no keywords are specified for the view. See META_DEFAULT_KEYWORDS if you wish to specify keywords to be used when no keywords are supplied. Default is [].


Iterable of default keywords to use when no keywords are specified for the view. These keywords are not included if you specify keywords for the view. If you need keywords that will always be present, regardless of whether you’ve specified any other keywords for the view or not, you need to combine this setting with META_INCLUDE_KEYWORDS setting. Default is [].


This setting is used as the base URL for all image assets that you intend to use as og:image property in your views. This is django-meta’s counterpart of the Django’s STATIC_URL setting. In fact, Django’s STATIC_URL setting is a fallback if you do not specify this setting, so make sure either one is configured. Default is to use the STATIC_URL setting.

Note that you must add the trailing slash when specifying the URL. Even if you do not intend to use the og:image property, you need to define either this setting or the STATIC_URL setting or an attribute error will be raised.


This setting tells django-meta whether to render the OpenGraph properties. Default is False.


This setting tells django-meta whether to render the Twitter properties. Default is False.


This setting tells django-meta whether to render the properties. Default is False.


This setting tells django-meta whether to render the <title></title> tag. Default is False.


This setting tells django-meta to derive the site’s domain using the Django’s sites contrib app. If you enable this setting, the META_SITE_DOMAIN is not used at all. Default is False.


Use this setting to add a list of additional OpenGraph namespaces to be declared in the <head> tag.


Use this setting to customize the list of additional OpenGraph properties for which the :secure_url suffix is added if the URL value is a https URL.
