How can I check the size of a collection within a Django template?

I have a list in my Django template.  I want to do something only if the size of the list is greater than zero.  
I have tried myList|length and myList|length_is but they have not been successful.
I've searched all over and don't see any examples. How can I check this?

Solutions/Answers:

Answer 1:

See https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/stable/ref/templates/builtins/#if : just use, to reproduce their example:

{% if athlete_list %}
    Number of athletes: {{ athlete_list|length }}
{% else %}
    No athletes.
{% endif %}

Answer 2:

If you’re using a recent Django, changelist 9530 introduced an {% empty %} block, allowing you to write

{% for athlete in athlete_list %}
  ...
{% empty %}
  No athletes
{% endfor %}

Useful when the something that you want to do involves iterating over a non-empty list.

Answer 3:

A list is considered to be False if it has no elements, so you can do something like this:

{% if mylist %}
    <p>I have a list!</p>
{% else %}
    <p>I don't have a list!</p>
{% endif %}

Answer 4:

If you tried myList|length and myList|length_is and its not getting desired results, then you should use myList.count

Answer 5:

You can try with:

{% if theList.object_list.count > 0 %}
    blah, blah...
{% else %}
    blah, blah....
{% endif %} 

Answer 6:

Collection.count no bracket

{% if request.user.is_authenticated %}
{{wishlists.count}}
{% else %}0{% endif %}

Answer 7:

I need the collection length to decide whether I should render table <thead></thead>

but don’t know why @Django 2.1.7 the chosen answer will fail(empty) my forloop afterward.

I got to use {% if forloop.first %} {% endif %} to overcome:

<table>
    {% for record in service_list %}
        {% if forloop.first %}
            <thead>
            <tr>
                <th>日期</th>
            </tr>
            </thead>
        {% endif %}
        <tbody>
        <tr>
            <td>{{ record.date }}</td>
        </tr>
    {% endfor %}
    </tbody>
</table>
