While trying to figure out how to set cookies with Django (something I’ve been lucky enough to not have to do) I was of course searching “How to set a cookie with Django” this was the first result I found. Now that’s a great link and all, and it points to the relevant Django Docs.
However, there was a particular example missing. Returning a rendered template, with a cookie. Fortunately, it didn’t take long to figure it out, but I felt the fact that an exact example of this was missing as a little annoying. So for anyone else wondering “How do I return a rendered template AND set a cookie” here’s an example.
from django.shortcuts import render def my_view(request): response = render(request, 'index.html') response.set_cookie('my_cookie', 'Here is my cookie!') return response
With any luck this will help at least one other person out there!
