Added Support for Bootstrap 5

In addition to Tailwind CSS, we now fully support Bootstrap 5. This update allows users to choose their preferred styling framework more flexibly for their projects.

How to choose Bootstrap 5: On the Django Boilerplate download page, you can now select Bootstrap 5 instead of the default Tailwind CSS. This enables you to start your projects with Bootstrap's styling conventions and components from the get-go.

Added x-cloak CSS class to the Navbar

To prevent the Navbar from flickering when Alpine.js loads, we've added the x-cloak CSS class. This class is defined in the header of base.html and is applied to the Navbar to prevent the 'blip' effect when the page loads.

  • Definition
    [x-cloak] {
        display: none;
  • Usage
    <nav x-data="{ open: false }" x-cloak>

You can also invoke the x-cloak class in your HTML code to prevent flickering of other elements that rely on Alpine.js.

New Python Script for Populating Related Blog Posts

We've introduced a Python script to automatically populate related blog posts for each entry.

  • Location: Find the script in the blog/utils/ folder.
  • Ease of Use: A management command, populate_related_blogs, has been added to facilitate script execution. This command is located in blog/management/commands/.
  • Execution: The management script blog/management/commands/ invokes the populate_related_blogs function from the blog/utils/ file.

To run the script, ensure you have blog posts in your database and execute:

python populate_related_blogs

For a deeper understanding of how the script works, including its reliance on Jaccard similarity for determining relatedness, visit our detailed blog: How to Programmatically Populate Related Blogs in Django: Boosting User Experience and SEO .
