Defining Template Directories

Project creation

When creating a Django application, you can immediately specify a folder where templates will be stored.

Using the Project Structure page

To define template directories

  1. In the Settings/Preferences dialog (Ctrl+Alt+S), click the Project Structure page.
  2. Choose the directory to be marked as a template root.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Click template folder icon on the toolbar of the Content roots pane.
    • Choose Templates on the directory's context menu.

Using the Project tool window

To mark a folder as a template directory

  1. In the Project Tool Window, right-click the desired directory.
  2. On the context menu, choose Mark Directory As, and then click the checked command Template Directory.

    This results in adding the marked directory to the list of template directories in the Project Structure page.

You can make Django support skip some folders (disable Django language substitution), if you mark them as resources, for example:
