[Fixed]-Jinja var not passed to template


This doesn’t have anything to do with the login_required decorator or jinja2, the problem is in your view. You should use the render shortcut instead of render_to_response.

from django.shortcuts import render

def displaystats(request):
    return render(request, 'displaystats.html', {'listpackages': listpackages})

When you use render_to_response you have to explicitly use a RequestContext so that the auth context processor runs and includes user in the template context. The render shortcut does it automatically.
