Description (last modified by Malcolm Tredinnick)


When I try to pass a list variable as one of template params from one of my view using render_to_response method in the view it is getting as a string data type.

View code -

ids = getIds(id,project_slug)-> returns a list type (eg: ids = [11111L,222222L]
template_params = {'ids':ids}
return render_to_response(template, template_params,

Then in the view.html

var ids = {{ ids }};

But here it is having problems since it is considering as string data type.

Any suggestions will be very usefull.

Unbreak description formatting (the preview button is your friend!).

What is the problem you are actually seeing here? Templates output strings, so there's no concept of a type in the output. What do you expect to see and what are you seeing? I suspect this is an incorrect expectation, rather than a bug, but if you could provide some more details that would be helpful.

The problem is passing a list variable from a view to one of the template.
I am having a problem when it gets assigned to a javascript variable.

The line where it gets assigned var ids = {{ ids }};

I have copied below how it is getting rendered in the view and the error

ids = [1054652L];

Error - missing ] after element list

Ok, so this isn't a Django bug. Django's templates, if given no other information just display the Python unicode() form of the variable, which for something like a list means the repr() output. You need a filter to convert it to display as valid Javascript, for example.

Closing this, since it's not a bug. If you need more help, please ask on the django-users list.
