Sample Ajax GET/POST Request in Django

This post is depricated and might not be useful.

Let us make a test scenario here: A dropdown field which on change we are going to send a Get/Post request to Django and return response.

Let us start coding….

Let’s make an Ajax request after the change in the dropdown field.


var e = document.getElementById("select_dropdown");
var value = e.options[e.selectedIndex].value;

    url: "your-url",
    type: "post", // or "get"
    data: value,
    success: function(data) {



Here on change of a post request is called. Now let’s handle the view.

import json
def post(request):
if request.POST(): #os request.GET()
    get_value= request.body
    # Do your logic here coz you got data in `get_value`
    data = {}
    data['result'] = 'you made a request'
    return HttpResponse(json.dumps(data), content_type="application/json")

Thats all.
