Provide a workaround to use different method from GET or POST inside HTML forms

Project description

Build Status codecov CodeFactor PyPI Version Python 3.4+ Django 1.8, 1.10+, 2.0+ License MIT


Provide a workaround to use different method than GET or POST inside HTML forms in django templates. Works only with Class Based View.


From source code:

python install

From pip:

pip install django-http-method


Add django_http_method to your settings.INSTALLED_APPS
Add the mixin to a CBV
from django.views.generic import View
from django_http_method import HttpMethodMixin

class TestView(HttpMethodMixin, View):
	def get(self, request):
	def delete(self, request):
	def put(self, request):
In your template, load http_method and use {% http_[method] %} in your forms:
{% load http_method %}

<form action="/" method="post">
    {% csrf_token %}
    {% http_put %}
    <button type="submit">Send a PUT request</button>

<form action="/" method="post">
    {% csrf_token %}
    {% http_patch %}
    <button type="submit">Send a PATCH request</button>

The corresponding method of your View will now be called. For instance, if {% http_put %} was used, then TestView.put() will be called and any request parameter will be in request.PUT.



  • Added pyaml to setup requirement.


  • Now use yaml.safe_load() instead of yaml.load()
  • Added python 3.7 and django 2.1 to test matrix


  • Initial release for python3.4+ and django1.8, 1.10, 1.11 and 2.0+


  • Will now search for parameters in body for methods PUT and PATCH

  • Added end slash '/' at the end of HTML input in templatetags


  • Removing '_method' from request parameters
