Hi All,

I use django templates a lot and I always wished there was a myvar|startswith:"teststring", myvar|endswith:"teststring" and a myvar|contains:"teststring" filter.

It's almost like we need a syntax for calling methods with an argument, just like we can with filters.

For example (bring on the sheds for bikes!)

    {{ myvar.startswith<"teststring" }}

I instead do stuff like myvar|slice:":10" == "teststring" which is a total hack.

Is this something that could be simple and common enough to add to django as batteries-included built-in?

Alternatively, I recall some time in the past I may have written a "strings" template filter library simply to provide string methods as filters...
