Pass Parameters from Views to Templates in Django

In Django, you pass parameters from views to templates through the context dictionary. This dictionary serves as the medium for transferring data from your view to your template. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do this:

Define Your View

First, you define your view in your file. Django views can be either functions or classes. Here’s an example of a simple function-based view:

from django.shortcuts import render

def my_view(request):
    my_variable = "Welcome to Django!"
    context = {'my_variable': my_variable}
    return render(request, 'my_template.html', context)

In this example, my_variable is the parameter we want to pass to the template. The context dictionary is used to pass this parameter.

Create Your Template

Next, create your template file (my_template.html), where you’ll use the variable passed from the view. Here’s how you might use it in the template:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <title>My Page</title>
    <h1>{{ my_variable }}</h1>

In the template, {{ my_variable }} will be replaced with “Welcome to Django!” when the template is rendered.
