django-fbv includes utilities to make function-based views cleaner, more efficient, and better tasting. 💥
The Django community continues to be split about whether to use function-based views or class-based views. This library is intended to provide solutions that address some of the annoyances of function-based views.
If you want to read a more detailed critique of class-based views, https://spookylukey.github.io/django-views-the-right-way/ is excellent.
poetry add django-fbv OR
pip install django-fbv
The decorators and views can be used by just importing them. The middleware needs to be installed like typical Django middleware.
fbv.decorators.render_html: decorator to specify the template that a view function response should use when rendering
fbv.decorators.render_view: decorator to specify the template and content type that a view function response should use when rendering
fbv.decorators.render_json: decorator to automatically render dictionaries, Django Models, or Django QuerySets as a JSON response
fbv.middleware.RequestMethodMiddleware: adds a boolean property to the
requestfor the current request’s HTTP method
