I am new to Django
I am trying to convert my function-based views to class-based views. Here I ran into a problem.
I don’t know whether the user is logged in or not. I can’t call the user.is_authenticated inside my class-based view.
class UserLoginView(FormView): template_name = 'login.html' form_class = UserLoginForm success_url = reverse_lazy('login') def form_valid(self, form): user = authenticate(username=form.cleaned_data['username'], password=form.cleaned_data['password']) if user is not None: login(request=self.request, user=user) print('Login Successfull') return HttpResponseRedirect(self.success_url) def form_invalid(self, form): print('Login Failed') return HttpResponseRedirect(self.success_url)
How can I check whether the user is already logged in and send him directly to the home page.
Thanks in advance.
