If value in interval is not selected, i would like to use default one ( 1d )
# if i got post request if request.method == "POST": # check if interval is choosen in form if 'interval' in request.POST: interval= request.POST["interval"] else: interval = "1d" if "ticker" in request.POST: ticker= request.POST["ticker"]
the value of intervals is not check properly if is there
You set this default value in frontend. In your html:
<option selected="selected"> 1d </option>
I would argue that it is the better option.
You can of course check for empty string in the interval keyword
if request.POST["interval"] == "": interval = "1d"
