Displaying a Table in Django from Database

47

How do you display the information from a database table in a table format on a webpage? Is there a simple way to do this in django or does it require a more complicated approach. More specifically, how do you pretty much port over the columns and rows in a database table to a visual table that can be seen from a url?

The easiest way is to use a for loop template tag.

Given the view:

def MyView(request):
    ...
    query_results = YourModel.objects.all()
    ...
    #return a response to your template and add query_results to the context

You can add a snippet like this your template...

<table>
    <tr>
        <th>Field 1</th>
        ...
        <th>Field N</th>
    </tr>
    {% for item in query_results %}
    <tr> 
        <td>{{ item.field1 }}</td>
        ...
        <td>{{ item.fieldN }}</td>
    </tr>
    {% endfor %}
</table>

This is all covered in Part 3 of the Django tutorial. And here's Part 1 if you need to start there.
