How to customise an existing view¶
Oscar has many views. This How-to describes how to customise one of them for your project. It builds upon the steps described in Customising Oscar. Please read it first and ensure that you’ve:
Created a Python module with the the same label
Added it as Django app to
Create a new homepage view class in
myproject.offer.views - you can
subclass Oscar’s view if you like:
from oscar.apps.offer.views import OfferListView as CoreOfferListView class OfferListView(CoreOfferListView): template_name = 'offer/new_list.html'
In this example, we set a new template location but it’s possible to customise the view in any imaginable way. As long as the view has the same name as the view you’re replacing, and is in an app with the same name, it will get picked up automatically by Oscar.
If you want to change the template, create the alternative template
new_list.html. This could either be
in a project-level
templates folder that is added to your
settings, or a app-level
templates folder within your ‘offer’ app.
