truncate

Truncate a text to a maximum length.

The text is truncated to the maximum length specified with the argument. The text is always truncated at a word boundary. If the truncation is not after punctuation then the unicode ellipsis character is appended.

For example:

{{ value|truncate:8 }}

If the value is hello world. then the output is hello….

Entities like & are counted as a single character.

This filter is multibyte aware: Multi-byte UTF-8 characters are assumed to be non-breaking characters.

Truncating character

An optional second argument defines which text will be added if the text is truncated:

{{ value|truncate:8:" (more)" }}

If the value is hello world. then the output is hello (more).
