g.user and current_user

I'm not sure why g.user is used inside the post view and current_user is in stream view.

I figured we are supposed to use g.user inside of stream as well!

I wish someone would answer this question. It seems like current_user works fine and is less confusing.

:bookmark: Hi, I got alerted by your tag, but it's been a long time since I looked at this course and I've never used Flask in real life.

You might try posting a fresh question since this one is nearly a year old and potential helpers might not look that far back on the forum.
