django.conf.urls utility functions

static()

static.static(prefix, view=django.views.static.serve, **kwargs)

Helper function to return a URL pattern for serving files in debug mode:

from django.conf import settings
from django.conf.urls.static import static

urlpatterns = [
    # ... the rest of your URLconf goes here ...
] + static(settings.MEDIA_URL, document_root=settings.MEDIA_ROOT)

url()

url(regex, view, kwargs=None, name=None)[source]

urlpatterns should be a list of url() instances. For example:

from django.conf.urls import include, url

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^index/$', index_view, name='main-view'),
    url(r'^weblog/', include('blog.urls')),
    ...
]

The view parameter is a view function or the result of as_view() for class-based views. It can also be an include().

The kwargs parameter allows you to pass additional arguments to the view function or method. See Passing extra options to view functions for an example.

See Naming URL patterns for why the name parameter is useful.

include()

include(module, namespace=None, app_name=None)[source]
include(pattern_list)
include((pattern_list, app_namespace), namespace=None)
include((pattern_list, app_namespace, instance_namespace))

A function that takes a full Python import path to another URLconf module that should be “included” in this place. Optionally, the application namespace and instance namespace where the entries will be included into can also be specified.

Usually, the application namespace should be specified by the included module. If an application namespace is set, the namespace argument can be used to set a different instance namespace.

include() also accepts as an argument either an iterable that returns URL patterns, a 2-tuple containing such iterable plus the names of the application namespaces, or a 3-tuple containing the iterable and the names of both the application and instance namespace.

Parameters:
  • module – URLconf module (or module name)
  • namespace (string) – Instance namespace for the URL entries being included
  • app_name (string) – Application namespace for the URL entries being included
  • pattern_list – Iterable of django.conf.urls.url() instances
  • app_namespace (string) – Application namespace for the URL entries being included
  • instance_namespace (string) – Instance namespace for the URL entries being included

See Including other URLconfs and URL namespaces and included URLconfs.

Deprecated since version 1.9: Support for the app_name argument is deprecated and will be removed in Django 2.0. Specify the app_name as explained in URL namespaces and included URLconfs instead.

Support for passing a 3-tuple is also deprecated and will be removed in Django 2.0. Pass a 2-tuple containing the pattern list and application namespace, and use the namespace argument instead.

Lastly, support for an instance namespace without an application namespace has been deprecated and will be removed in Django 2.0. Specify the application namespace or remove the instance namespace.

handler400

handler400

A callable, or a string representing the full Python import path to the view that should be called if the HTTP client has sent a request that caused an error condition and a response with a status code of 400.

By default, this is 'django.views.defaults.bad_request'. If you implement a custom view, be sure it returns an HttpResponseBadRequest.

See the documentation about the 400 (bad request) view for more information.

handler403

handler403

A callable, or a string representing the full Python import path to the view that should be called if the user doesn’t have the permissions required to access a resource.

By default, this is 'django.views.defaults.permission_denied'. If you implement a custom view, be sure it returns an HttpResponseForbidden.

See the documentation about the 403 (HTTP Forbidden) view for more information.

handler404

handler404

A callable, or a string representing the full Python import path to the view that should be called if none of the URL patterns match.

By default, this is 'django.views.defaults.page_not_found'. If you implement a custom view, be sure it returns an HttpResponseNotFound.

See the documentation about the 404 (HTTP Not Found) view for more information.

handler500

handler500

A callable, or a string representing the full Python import path to the view that should be called in case of server errors. Server errors happen when you have runtime errors in view code.

By default, this is 'django.views.defaults.server_error'. If you implement a custom view, be sure it returns an HttpResponseServerError.

See the documentation about the 500 (HTTP Internal Server Error) view for more information.
