How to display student data using serializer method in template file in django

To display student data using a serializer method in a template file in Django, follow these step-by-step instructions:

Define the Student model:

Open your Django app's file.
Define the Student model with the required fields.

from django.db import models

class Student(models.Model):
    first_name = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    last_name = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    roll_number = models.IntegerField()
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
# Add other fields as per your requirements
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Create a serializer:

Create a new file called in your Django app's directory.
Import the serializers module from rest_framework.
Define a serializer class for the Student model.

from rest_framework import serializers
from .models import Student

class StudentSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
    class Meta:
        model = Student
        fields = '__all__'
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Create a view:

Open your Django app's file.
Import the necessary modules and classes.
Create a view function to retrieve student data and pass it to the template.

from django.shortcuts import render
from .models import Student
from .serializers import StudentSerializer

def student_list(request):
    students = Student.objects.all()
    serializer = StudentSerializer(students, many=True)
    context = {'students':}
    return render(request, 'student_list.html', context)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Create a template:

Create a new HTML file called student_list.html in your app's templates directory.
Access the student data in the template using Django template tags.

<h1>Student List</h1>
  {% for student in students %}
    <li>{{ student.first_name }} {{ student.last_name }} - Roll Number: {{ student.roll_number }}</li>
  {% endfor %}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Define the URL pattern:

Open your Django project's file.
Import the view function from your app's file.
Define a URL pattern that maps to the student_list view function.

from django.urls import path
from your_app.views import student_list

urlpatterns = [
    # Other URL patterns
    path('students/', student_list, name='student_list'),
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Run the Django development server:

In the terminal or command prompt, navigate to your project's root directory.
Run the following command to start the Django development server:

python runserver
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Access the student list page:

Open your web browser and visit the URL mapped to the student_list view function (e.g., http://localhost:8000/students/).
The template will render the student data retrieved from the database using the serializer method.
