How do you wrap the view of a 3rd-party app (let’s call the view to wrap “view2wrap” and the app “3rd_party_app”) so you can do some custom things before the app does its thing?
I’ve set urls.py to capture the correct url:
url( r’^foo/bar/$’, view_wrapper, name=’my_wrapper’),
I’ve created my custom view:
from 3rd_party_app.views import view2wrap def view_wrapper(request, *args, **kwargs): # Do some cool custom stuff return view2wrap(request, *args, **kwargs)
When I try this, I get the error “No module named 3rd_party_app.views”. Why?
The third party application is not in your python path.
Is the 3rd Party App listed in INSTALLED_APPS in your settings.py?
Try placing the 3rd party package folder within your project folder. 🙂
