How to Render a Template in Django



Python


In this article, we show how to render a template in Django.

When we render a template in Django, we use that template as our viewing file.

So, if we render a template in the views.py file, that template will be displayed.

So rendering a template in Django is very simple.

All we need is the following code, shown below.



So, it's very basic.

First, we just have to import render from django.shortcuts

We then have our function, index. The request parameter must always be passed into the function.

We then return render(request, 'template.html')

This line renders the template.html file.

This can be any type of HTML file.

So, when a user specifies the path to this views.py file, this HTML file, template.html, will be rendered.

This code is all we need to render a template in a file, usually the views.py file.

The views.py file is the file that returns the view that a user sees visiting a page.

If you render a template in the views.py file, this template file will be the file that a will be rendered and that a user will see.

Rendering templates is a key part of Django, because normally web pages are made of an intricate collaboration of HTML and CSS. This creates the beautiful styling a web page can be compsed of.

Having templates separated from other files in Django is very important, because it allows the website to separate frontend code (such as HTML and CSS) from backend code (such as Python).

This is especially important to websites that are composed by a team of software engineers. This is because some engineers do frontend work, specialize in frontend languages such as HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Other engineers like working on backend things such as database creation, structure, and so on. Therefore, it's important to have the frontend part of the website separated from the backend.

By having templates in Django, this allows the frontend pages to be rendered separate from the Python code.
