I'm trying to same some query in my cache, currently I'm working with an example that I found here, but I get this error, when I try to open my template.

cached_queries() takes no arguments (1 given)

Internal Server Error: /consulta-inicial/

Here's my code.


cie_4 = DropdownCie(cie_descripcion.objects.all().order_by('cie_descripcion_desc').order_by('cie_descripcion_desc'), required=False)
cache.set('cie1', cie_1)


    'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
    'DIRS': [PROJECT_DIR.child("templates")],
    'APP_DIRS': False,
    'OPTIONS': {
        'context_processors': [


from django.core.cache import cache

def cached_queries():
    return {'cache', cache.get('cie_1')}

As well as taking an argument, context processors need to return a dictionary, not a set.

def cached_queries(request):
    return {'cache': cache.get('cie_1')}

Just as the error says, context processors should provide an argument, and you aren't. Your other issue is that you're returning a set, not a dictionary. All context processors should return a dictionary {key: value, ...}, where key will be the name of the variable in your template's context, and value the value of the variable

def cached_queries(request):
    return {'cache': cache.get('cie_1')}
