Telling if a field is required in Django templates

If you want to tell whether a field in a template is required, use form.myfield.field.required as in the example below:

{% for field in form %}
    <label for="{{ field.id_for_label }}">
        {{ field.label }}
        {% if field.field.required %}*{% endif %}
    </label>
    {{ field }}
    {{ field.errors }}
{% endfor %}

In this example, there will be an asterisk next to the required fields.

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
