            Checking properties of an object based on separete view (Django|Django-Rest-Framework)
            Asked 2022-Feb-13 at 19:40

            I am using django-rest-framework and React.js. I need a seperate function in the backend to check if CartItem.amount is lower then ProductStock.quantity, if CartItem.product equals of course (this part does not work). For the same function I need to check if the pricing is the same as in Product model, but suprisingly this part of a function works. What can I do to make sure CartItem.amount will get lowered if it is higher than ProductStock.quantity?

            Code below:

            Product is a blueprint for the rest of the models.

            ProductStock tracks the amount of different sizes of all of products.

            CartItem is a model used for tracking how many products a user bought.




            Answered 2022-Feb-13 at 19:40

            You need to change indentation of JsonResponse cause it ends after first stock in product_stock. Also and more probably need indentation change. Revise that in clean Python.

            DRF: Creating mixin using different serializers & objects
            Asked 2022-Jan-17 at 11:31

            I have two APIView classes with almost similar behaviour (and code). Different are only serializers and models object (Favorite & FavoriteSerializer for first class and PurchaseList and PurchaseListSerializer for second). As far as I understand it is a perfect usecase for mixin, according to DRF docs ([DRF: Creating custom mixins] 1

            Unfortunately, I'm struggling with how to define mixin without the definition of serializer & obj in it.

            Django and react login with google authentication
            Asked 2022-Jan-13 at 12:45

            I was trying set up google authentication with react frontend and django rest framework backend. I set up both the frontend and backend using this two part tutorial, PART1 & PART2. When I try to login with google in the frontend I get POST 400 (Bad Request) I think it's because my google api needs an access token and an authorization code to be passed. After debugging the react js, I noticed the response I get from google doesn't have an authorization code. I suspect because responseType is permission(by default), Source:React login props , instead of code. I was wondering how would you change the response type in react? (I'm not even sure if this alone is the issue)

            Here's my backend code

            Answered 2021-Nov-04 at 23:26

            After investigating a bit on my end, I think I might have a solution that works for you.

            I've messed with OAuth before, and it's quite tricky sometimes because it has to be robust. So a bunch of security policies usually get in the way.

            I'll provide my full step-by-step, since I was able to get it working, trying my best to match what you posted.

            Firstly, to have a clean slate, I went off the example code linked in the tutorials. I cloned and built the project, and did the following:

            • Creating a new project on GCP
              • Configured the OAuth consent screen
                • I set the User type to "internal". This options may not be available if you're not using an account under GSuite (which I am). "External" should be fine though, just that "internal" is the easiest to test.
              • Created a OAuth 2.0 Client
                • Added http://localhost:3000 to the "Authorized JavaScript origins" and "Authorized redirect URIs" sections
            • Register a Django superuser
              • Registered a Site, with value of localhost:8000 for both fields.
              • Went into the admin panel, and added a Social Application with Client ID and Secret Key as the "Client ID" and "Client Secret" from GCP, respectively. I also picked the localhost site that we added earlier and added it to the right hand box. (I left Key blank)

            Example of my Application Page

            • Filled in the clientId field in App.js, in the params of the GoogleLogin component.

            Here's where I ran into a bit of trouble, but this is good news as I was able to reproduce your error! Looking at the request in the network inspector, I see that for me, no body was passed, which is clearly the direct cause of the error. But looking at App#responseGoogle(response), it clearly should pass a token of some sort, because we see the line googleLogin(response.accessToken).

            So what is happening is that is NOT returning a proper response, so something is happening on their end, and we get an invalid response, but we fail silently because javascript is javascript.

            After examining the response that Google gave back, I found this related SO post that allowed me to fix the issue, and interestingly, the solution to it was quite simple: Clear your cache. I'll be honest, I'm not exactly sure why this works, but I suspect it has something to do with the fact that development is on your local machine (localhost/ difference, perhaps?).

            You can also try to access your site via incognito mode, or another browser, which also worked for me.

            I have knox token set up, can I use it instead of the JWT tokens?

            I don't think I have enough knowledge to properly answer this, but my preliminary research suggests no. AFAIK, you should just store the token that Google gives you, as the token itself is what you'll use to authenticate. It seems that Knox replaces Django's TokenAuthentication, which means that Knox is in charge of generating the token. If you're offloading the login work to Google, I don't see how you could leverage something like Knox. However, I could be very wrong.

            Does the class GoogleLogin(SocialLoginView), take care of the steps of validating the access token and code with google and creating the user with that email in database?

            I believe so. After successfully authenticating with Google (and it calls the backend endpoint correctly), it seems to create a "Social Account" model. An example of what it created for me is below. It retrieved all this information (like my name) from Google.

            Example of my "Social Accounts" page

            As for how to retrieve the login from the browser's local storage, I have no idea. I see no evidence of a cookie, so it must be storing it somewhere else, or you might have to set that up yourself (with React Providers, Services, or even Redux.

            An index can be scanned in both directions, but it needs to be sorted exactly like the ORDER BY clause it is intended by default. A plain index is sorted in ASC NULLS LAST order, so it can support that order or the reverse, namely DESC NULLS FIRST. To create an index that can support your ORDER BY clause, use

            Django SimpleJWT: Some questions with token authentication
            Asked 2021-Dec-15 at 07:07

            I am implementing authentication in Django using SimpleJWT, and have a few questions regarding the same. To give some background I have multiple domains with my backend, some with normal login (username and password), and some with SSO logins.

            Question 2: Suppose, I store the access tokens in local storage and send the access token to all APIs, and I'm also refreshing it before it expires. But what will happen if the user closes the browser, and we are not able to refresh the access token. The access token expires and the user gets logged out. How can we keep the user logged in for a certain amount of time (say 30 days)?
