@kpagcha I believe they are both same.
"auth" is the app and "User" is the Model. If you look at the Installed_Apps, you probably have included 'django.contrib.auth',
User Model is from the same auth app
@rjusher I used at command for now(available in linux). Will have to switch to django-celery later when I need it extensively.

Why changes in jupyter are not visible in the same ipynb file opened for instance in PyCharm?

Hello everyonme
is it possible to make request optional?

at the moment I have something like:

def update_via_url(request):
       email =


def update_via_api(email):
I'm wondering if I could merge the two
def update(request=None, email=None):
        if email == None:
                do something
Would this be possible? Is it save to do it?

Hi, can someone help me (again! :D ) with something else?

for example I have this model:

class testModel(models.Model):
    user = models.ForeignKey('auth.User', on_delete=models.CASCADE)
    something = models.TextField()

and this view:

    testModel.objects.create(user=request.user, something='abc')
I would like to pass the user in an easy way, I know the foreign key needs to be a user instance, so I could do:
user= User.objects.get(
and then pass:
testModel.objects.create(user=user, something='abc')
but it it possible to do it without the get request?

I tried this:

testModel.objects.create(user=request.user, something='abc')

and this

testModel.objects.create(, something='abc')

but they don't seem to work
