django template display item value or empty string

My code in template is like this:

    {% for item in items %}
        {{ item.somefield }}
    {% endfor %}

I want to display the item value if the item.somefield is not None, or display an empty string. I don't want to use the {% if item.somefield %} statement, I want something like {{ item.somefield or '' }}(I tried this but it doesn't work)

You want the default_if_none template filter, (doc).

default_if_none will display the given string if the variable is 'None'.

default will display the string if the variable evaluates to False, ie empty strings, empty lists etc

    {{ item.somefield|default_if_none:"" }}
    {{ item.somefield|default:"" }}
