Reusable application for Django bridging client and server sides

Streamline you server and client interaction using declarative techniques in your HTML and helpful abstractions from siteajax in your Python code.


The client side of siteajax is powered by htmx (the successor of intercooler.js) -


Somewhere in your

from django.shortcuts import redirect, render
from siteajax.toolbox import ajax_dispatch

def get_news(request):
    news = ...  # Here we fetch some news from DB.
    # We could access `request.ajax` object properties
    # or even drive client side with the help
    # of siteajax.toolbox.AjaxResponse but for this demo
    # simple rendering is enough.
    return render(request, 'sub_news.html', {'news': news})

    # Map request source element id (see html below)
    # to a handler.
    'news-list': get_news,
def index_page(request):
    """Suppose this view is served at /"""
    return render(request, 'index.html')

Now to your index.html:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <!-- Get client library js from CDN. -->
    {% include "siteajax/cdn.html" %}
    <div id="news-list" hx-get hx-trigger="load"></div>
    <!-- The contents of the above div will be replaced
        with the news from your server automatically fetched on page load.
        Notice `hx-*` attributes driving htmx JS library.
        Also notice how `id="news-list"` is used by `@ajax_dispatch`
        view decorator (shown above). -->

At last sub_news.html (nothing special):

{% for item in news %}<div>{{ item.title }}</div>{% endfor %}
