This is a really simple snippet , but is not documented well ... Whit this , you can limit the output of one field in 25 characters before you test that is equal or over 30 characters! Note that the snippet cut the text and add three points at the end (...) Enjoy!

       return obj.field
     else:
       return obj.field[:26]+'...'
