I use this article to make sure any styling changes I make don’t break.

    Implements all identity-related logic, usually about the current user and
    their current session (whether they are authenticated).

    def get_required_session_user(request):
        Will return a user's identity if they are authenticated, but will throw
        if no user is authenticated.
        This can be used to as the first step in handling a request, stopping
        users who are not authenticating from proceeding.
