Does testing in Django set a specific setting to True? Like TESTING? I need to do some stuff differently when testing

Pytest django provides a settings fixture, it allows you to overwrite settings for certain tests
Unless you want to have a global test settings, in this case you can have a separate settings file for testing

@mackeyja92 you can do it yourself, write TESTING = True in your only-for-test settings file. And you may need to write TESTING = False in the others, so it does always find the key.

How does Django generate html forms with initial data?
I want to implement this myself - combine a html form text with initial values. Will I need to use beautiful soup or something

Check out crispy forms, maybe you don't need to generate them manually
For the generation code, you can simply check out django source code

I was using that before
@megapctr this is what I have so far...
from pyquery import PyQuery as pq

def populate_html_form(data, html_form):
    d = pq(html_form)
    d = pq(html)
    for key,value in data:
    return d.html()

I've got user defined forms that i need to support
so a string of html form... then i need to use this as a form for particular users
saving data as key value pairs
now I am trying to generate a csrfmiddlewaretoken in the view since the raw html will not have any tags ({% csrf_token %})
i think this will do it
