How to switch pages using Ajax in Django

0 votes

I am trying to create site navigation using AJAX. I have navigation menu with links to different views (using {% url name %} in template). The thing I am trying to do is to load the page content using AJAX. The page content I am trying to load is enclosed in content block ({% block content %}).

I also found this snippet http://djangosnippets.org/snippets/942/, but I want to use the views I have already defined and only get the content using ajax.

Any suggestions?

You should use django-pjax which is built exactly for that kind of thing.

All you will have to do is to, in the base template, include the whole page or just the block contentbased on whether the request is ajax or not.

django-pjax does the AJAX calls using the jQuery and manipulates history using HTML5 push state API, which is a very good way to do it and also gracefully degrades in IE older versions.
