Distribution of Request MethodsDistribution of Request Methods

The HTTP requests have methods: GET, POST, UPDATE, PATCH, and DELETE.

The received request argument is an object that has different tools to manipulation with taken HTTP request. We can use the request.method to take the method of taken HTTP request.

We can prepare different operations by the received request method using the if statement.

Let's distribute the post_create View function:

The View function post_create handles both GET and POST requests for creating a new post. Here's a breakdown of what the code does:

  1. The post_create view function takes a request object as a parameter, which represents the HTTP request made by the client.
  2. The code checks the request method using request.method to determine the type of request being made.
  3. If the request method is "GET", the View renders the "post_create.html" template using the render() function, which generates an HTTP response containing the rendered HTML template. The request object is passed as the first argument, and the name of the template ("post_create.html") is provided as the second argument.
  4. If the request method is "POST", the View creates a new instance of the Post model and returns an HTTP response with the HTML content "<h1>Complete!</h1>".

Overall, this code handles the creation of a new post by rendering a form or a page for GET requests and saving the data from a POST request into the database.

Everything was clear?
