All signals are
django.dispatch.Signal instances. The
providing_args is a list of the names of arguments the signal will provide to listeners. This is purely documentational, however, as there is nothing that checks that the signal actually provides these arguments to its listeners.
Django Signals allows decoupled (independent) applications get notified when certain events occur elsewhere in the framework with the help of 'signal dispatcher'. The 'signal dispatcher' is Django's mechanism used to send and receive messages between different parts of an application which are instances of Signal, via the connect method.
Django uses request and response objects to pass state through the system. When a page is requested, Django creates an HttpRequest object that contains metadata about the request. Then Django loads the appropriate view, passing the
HttpRequest as the first argument to the view function. Each view is responsible for returning an
The term 'alias' is synonymous with a shortcut. Alias creation is a common pattern found in other popular utilities like `bash` shell. Aliases are used to create shorter commands that map to longer commands. Aliases enable more efficient workflows by requiring fewer keystrokes to execute a command.
An object representing a stream of data. Repeated calls to the iterator’s
__next__() method (or passing it to the built-in function
next()) return successive items in the stream. When no more data are available a StopIteration exception is raised instead. At this point, the iterator object is exhausted and any further calls to its
__next__() method just raise StopIteration again. Iterators are required to have an
__iter__() method that returns the iterator object itself so every iterator is also iterable and may be used in most places where other iterables are accepted. One notable exception is code which attempts multiple iteration passes. A container object (such as a list) produces a fresh new iterator each time you pass it to the
iter() function or use it in a for loop. Attempting this with an iterator will just return the same exhausted iterator object used in the previous iteration pass, making it appear like an empty container.
