Place the above code in your view, and then you can use it to specify what template to use. Set elements of the context as a dictionary and that gets passed to the template as well. For example:

In view.py:

####################################
@with_template('friends/index.html')
def friends(request, context, username):
   context['user'] = User.objects.get(username = username)

in friends/index.html:

{% extends "base.html" %}
{% block content %}
<h1>{{ user.username }}'s Friends</h1>

############################
def with_template(template):
   def wrapper(view):
      def call(request, *args, **kwargs):
         context = {}
         ret = view(request, context, *args, **kwargs)
         if ret: return(ret)
         return(render_to_response(template, RequestContext(request, context)))
      return(call)
   return(wrapper)
