Overcoming Troubles with Class-Based (Generic) Views

This repository contains the code used in my DjangoCon 2013 presentation. All other materials may be accessed here.

NB: To ease setup of this demonstration, the Django Secret Key has not been removed from the settings.py file. This site should therefore never be used for production purposes.

Setup

$ git clone https://github.com/jambonrose/djangocon2013-otwcbv.git djotwcbv
$ cd djotwcbv
$ ./manage.py syncdb
$ ./manage.py runserver 7777

Navigate your preferred browser to 127.0.0.1:7777.

Source Code Perusal

To make navigating the code easier, the project provides several tags. Each tag corresponds to a specific moment in the presentation/article.

Any of the tags may be accessed with: git checkout tagname. For example: git checkout cbgv-url-only.

In order of appearance:

  • function-views
    • The site uses functions to process requests.
  • cbv
    • The site uses class-based views to process requests.
  • cbgv-basic
    • The site uses class-based generic views (in bank/views.py) to process requests, removing the necessity for bank/forms.py.
  • cbgv-url-only
    • The site uses class-based generic views in the URL mapping (bank/urls.py) to process requests, removing the necessity for bank/views.py (bank/forms.py still unnecessary).
  • cbgv-customized
    • The site achieves the goals set forth in the presentation/article by customizing class-based generic views in bank/views.py and overriding ModelForm functionality in bank/forms.py. This last tag is equivalent to head of master.
