flask.views
~~~~~~~~~~~
This module provides class-based views inspired by the ones in Django.

"""Alternative way to use view functions. A subclass has to implement
:meth:`dispatch_request` which is called with the view arguments from
the URL routing system. If :attr:`methods` is provided the methods
do not have to be passed to the :meth:`~flask.Flask.add_url_rule`
method explicitly::
class MyView(View):
methods = ['GET']
def dispatch_request(self, name):
return 'Hello %s!' % name
app.add_url_rule('/hello/<name>', view_func=MyView.as_view('myview'))
When you want to decorate a pluggable view you will have to either do that
when the view function is created (by wrapping the return value of
:meth:`as_view`) or you can use the :attr:`decorators` attribute::
class SecretView(View):
methods = ['GET']
decorators = [superuser_required]
def dispatch_request(self):
...
The decorators stored in the decorators list are applied one after another
when the view function is created. Note that you can *not* use the class
based decorators since those would decorate the view class and not the
generated view function!

#: The canonical way to decorate class-based views is to decorate the

#: You can place one or more decorators in this list and whenever the
#: view function is created the result is automatically decorated.
