Class Based VIew docs about JSONResponseMixin misleading

Reported by: mbrochh@… Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: 1.4
Severity: Normal Keywords: cbv, class based views, docs
Cc: Triage Stage: Ready for checkin
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: yes UI/UX: no


Maybe I am wrong but the docs suggest to use the JSONResponseMixin like so:

from django.views.generic import View

class JSONView(JSONResponseMixin, View):

I feel that this doesn't make sense because View never calls any of the methods implemented in the JSONResponseMixin. It would make much more sense to inherit from TemplateView here instead of View.

The relevant part of the docs can be found here:

I tried out githubs - edit file in browser with small change, create a pull request. Pretty easy.

I'm self marking this as RFC because it is pretty trivial
