lorem – Django template Tags Explanation

Illustration of How to use lorem tag in Django templates using an Example. Consider a project named geeksforgeeks having an app named geeks.

Refer to the following articles to check how to create a project and an app in Django.

Now create a view through which we will access the template,
In geeks/views.py,






# import Http Response from django
from django.shortcuts import render
  
# create a function
def geeks_view(request):
  
    # return response
    return render(request, "geeks.html.html")

Create a url path to map to this view. In geeks/urls.py,




from django.urls import path
  
# importing views from views.py
from .views import geeks_view
  
urlpatterns = [
    path('', geeks_view),
]
