I have a model-
Article, and this code snippet
class ArticleDetailView(HitCountDetailView): model = Article # some code... def get_object(self): article = super(ArticleDetailView, self).get_object() slug = self.kwargs['slug'] article = get_object_or_404(Article, slug=slug) print(article.some_count.counts) return article
this code is line printing the value of
article.some_count_counts 3 times, it means the function
get_object() is getting called 3 times.
But why so? that’s my question.
Just remove the
DetailView itself can get objects with slug field.
So calling that function again is redundant.
