Re: Use variable in my template?

No I dont have a problem to find the images, i already used a variable to insert images from the static folder. Its just that I cant use my "marke" variable because it is in an external .py file and I would like to learn how to use that external variable in my template.

Hello everyone,
I have a variable I want to have access to in my Django template. But somehow I can't manage to do that.
I got Django/mytemplates/polls/detail.html (template) where I want to insert an image:

{% load staticfiles %}

<link href="{% static "style.css" %}" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />

 <img src="{{ STATIC_URL }}images/{{ marke.marke }}.jpg" alt="Picture" />
Django/mysite/polls/ :

from choice import*

global marke
marke = read_m()

The value of marke is marke3 and I have an image marke3.jpg. I successfully used another variable to insert an image ( but this time it wont work.
The folder 'polls' is in my INSTALLED_APPS.
What can I do?
