in this case the 'render_template' decorator assumes there is a myview.html template. this keeps things simple and you DRY. Hope it helps.

#process a dict and remove by default the 'request' key
cleandict = lambda dlist, ignore = 'request' : dict((key, val) for key, val in dlist.items() if key not in ignore)

from django.shortcuts import render_to_response

#render the template - assume a html format
def render_template(func):
    '''ensure the view using this has the template name matching it'''
    def render(*args, **kwargs):
        variables = func(*args, **kwargs)
        return render_to_response(func.__name__ + '.html', cleandict(variables))
    return render

Example code:

@render_template
def myview(request):
   variables = {'Hello': 'World', 'Monty' : 'Python'}
   return locals()

<p>your cleandict needs a patch:</p> <pre>>>> cleandict = lambda dlist, ignore = 'request' : dict((key, val) for key, val in dlist.items() if key not in ignore) >>> cleandict({"req":123}) {} </pre> <p>either:</p> <pre>cleandict = lambda dlist, ignore = ['request'] : dict((key, val) for key, val in dlist.items() if key not in ignore) </pre> <p>or:</p> <pre>cleandict = lambda dlist, ignore = 'request' : dict((key, val) for key, val in dlist.items() if key != ignore) </pre> <p>will fix the problem...</p>
