Checking every page if a user is logged in - Django
Updated on Oct. 8, 2017 |
Imagine, we have a page directory, www.example/home/. Here, /home/ directory can only be accessed after login. But what if a user tries to enter directly to this link directory without login. Currently, it will simply let the anonymous user see the page which is a huge problem as we only want the authenticated or logged in users see this page with their personalized information. Let’s prevent this following the step below.
Step 1: For every view, you want login to be a requirement set the code below.
# here goes other code of this view
#returns to a directory if a user is not logged in
request.user.is_authenticated is a Boolean attribute which is True if a user is logged in, else it is a False.
That’s it! Now, anyone without being logged in can’t see the page.
