Solved: django listview

The main problem with listviews is that they are difficult to use and can be confusing.

 with pagination

I am trying to create a listview with pagination in Django. I have tried the following code but it is not working:
<code>class MyListView(ListView):

    model = MyModel
    template_name = 'my_template.html'

    def get_context_data(self, **kwargs):
        context = super().get_context_data(**kwargs)

        context['page'] = self.request.GET.get('page')

        return context

    def get(self, request, *args, **kwargs):
        response = super().get(request, *args, **kwargs)

            page = int(response.context['page']) - 1
            if page &lt; 0: page = 0  # first page is 1 not 0! (paginator bug?)
            response.context['previous'] = str(page) if page &gt; 0 else None  # None for first page! (paginator bug?)
            response.context['next']     = str(page + 2) if len(response.context['object_list']) == 10 else None  # None for last page! (paginator bug?)

        except KeyError: pass  # no 'page' in the context... means we're on the first one! (no previous!) or last one! (no next!) or something went wrong... just ignore it and don't add anything to the context then...

        return response    

This code is a class-based view for a listview with pagination. The first four lines define the class, the model to use, the template to use, and the context data to be used. The next four lines define the get method and the response. The final four lines define the get_context_data method and return the context data.

What is a listview

A listview is a widget in Django that displays a list of items.
