A context decorator for Django views

Project description

Continuous integration Coverage PyPI

django-context-decorator is a Python package for Django removing the need to call super().get_context_data(**kwargs) in nearly every Django view.


from django_context_decorator import context
from django.utils.functional import cached_property
from django.views.generic import TemplateView

class MyView(TemplateView):
    template_name = 'path/to/template.html'

    def context_variable(self):
        return 'context value'

    def context_property(self):
        return 'context property'

    def expensive_context_property(self):
        return 'expensive context property'

Now you’ll have access to {{ context_variable }}, {{ context_property }} and {{ expensive_context_property }} in your template.

Please note: While this package works with the @cached_property decorator, please make sure to add the @context decorator above the @cached_property decorator.


Due to the usage of __set_name__, this package is limited to usage with Python 3.6+.
