[Fixed]-Django & TastyPie: request.POST is empty


Starting at Django 1.5, request.POST does not contain non-form data anymore. They are now in request.body.



I’m not a cURL expect but copying a POST request out of Chrome dev tools my --data looked as follows:

--data "foo=bar&bar=foo"

So it looks like you might want to change your command to:

--data item_id="1"

Side note:
I can highly recommend either of the following Chrome apps for making HTTP requests:

Advanced REST client OR Dev HTTP Client

Additionally if you can make the call in a browser (form submit or such like) then in Chrome dev tools network panel you can copy the request as a cURL command (right click on it)
