settings.py (os.path.join(BASE_DIR), 'templates', or /home/mainapp/templates) not working..

TEMPLATES = [
{
'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
'DIRS': ['templates'],
'APP_DIRS': True,
'OPTIONS': {
'context_processors': [
'django.template.context_processors.debug',
'django.template.context_processors.request',
'django.contrib.auth.context_processors.auth',
'django.contrib.messages.context_processors.messages',
],
},
},


article/views.py my def looks like:

def template_two(request):
view = "template_two"
t = get_template('myview.html')
html = t.render(Context({'name': view}))
return render(request, html, {})


My file:

mainapp/mainapp/settings.py
mainapp/mainapp/article/views.py
mainapp/templates/myview.html

Answer

The problem is that you are manually rendering your template and using the render shortcut at the same time. Your get_template is working, but when you call render(request, html, {}), Django is treatinghtmlas the filename, and looking for a template file named\n...`.

You should either render the template manually:

def template_two(request):
    view = "template_two"
    t = get_template('myview.html')
    html = t.render({'name': view})  # Note you should use a plain dictionary, not `Context` on Django 1.8+
    return HttpResponse(html)

Alternatively, it's simpler to use the render shortcut.

def template_two(request):
    view = "template_two"
    return render(request, "myview.html", {'name': view})

You should also change your DIRS setting back to use os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'templates'). Using the string 'templates' is not going to work.
