You may have noticed in the previous recipe that the data we used was global and not user-specific. In this recipe, we will see how we can create session data and take a deeper look into the templates as well as the data associated with them. In order to demonstrate this, we will create a small image-voting application, where the user will be prompted for the name, and after that they are given 50 points that they can spend for votes on the images.
To make the recipe simpler, we will serve the images statically from our
public directory so you can download the sample images that are part of the example code or use your own ones.
