Django: ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10:

Question

I am trying out some stuff in django. Just a simple form which would add every attempt to login in a database. It results in ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: I had checked out a lot of questions but wasn't able to get past this error.

I have a view like this.

class LoginView(TemplateView):
    template_name = 'dashboard/login.html'
    def post(self,request):

        #firstname,email=request.POST['firstname'],request.POST['email']
        #currLogin = LoginForm(firstname,email)
        currLogin = LoginForm(request.POST)
        if currLogin.is_valid():
            firstname= currLogin.cleaned_data['firstname']
            email = currLogin.cleaned_data['email']
            print firstname,email
            users = LoginModel.objects.filter(email=email)

            if not users:
                login = LoginModel(firstname,email)
                login.save()
            else :
                return users[0].id 
        return 0

My models.py file contains :

class LoginModel(models.Model):
    firstname = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    email = models.CharField(max_length=100)

My form.py contains this :

class LoginForm(forms.Form):
    firstname = forms.CharField(label="firstname",max_length=100)
    email = forms.CharField(label="email",max_length=100)
    class Meta:
        model = LoginModel

Any Help in figuring this out is appreciated.

    This is the culprit.

     login = LoginModel(firstname, email)
    

    When you initialize a model in this way, the arguments are passed to the fields in the order in which they (the fields) are defined. Now your first argument is firstname and that will be assigned to the primary key field which is defined for your model automatically by Django and is considered to be the first.

    Solution. Never initialize models like this. Always pass named parameters

    login = LoginModel(firstname=firstname, email=email)
