  • request (HttpRequest) – this will be passed to next process_view and finally will be passed to view.
  • view_func (callable) – the view function
  • view_args – the arguments that will be passed to view
  • view_kwargs – the keyword arguments that will be passed to view

None in order to continue processing process_view in middleware chain or ` HttpResponse` for braking middleware chain.


Decorator which marks the given view as public (not login required).

This decorator adds a read only property `` LOGIN_NOT_REQUIRED`` to the view, and if it’s value be True, the middleware will not force for login.

If you combine this with a login_required decorator, your view will be login required.
