Redirect to named url pattern directly from urls.py in django?
In Django, how can I do a simple redirect directly from urls.py? Naturally I am a well organized guy, favoring the DRY principle, so I would like to get the target based on it's named url pattern, rather than hard coding the url.
If you are on Django 1.4 or 1.5, you can do this:
from django.core.urlresolvers import reverse_lazy from django.views.generic import RedirectView urlpatterns = patterns('', url(r'^some-page/$', RedirectView.as_view(url=reverse_lazy('my_named_pattern'), permanent=False)), ...
If you are on Django 1.6 or above, you can do this:
from django.views.generic import RedirectView urlpatterns = patterns('', url(r'^some-page/$', RedirectView.as_view(pattern_name='my_named_pattern', permanent=False)), ...
In Django 1.9, the default value of
permanent has changed from True to False. Because of this, if you don’t specify the
permanent keyword argument, you may see this warning:
RemovedInDjango19Warning: Default value of ‘RedirectView.permanent’ will change from True to False in Django 1.9. Set an explicit value to silence this warning.
This works for me.
from django.views.generic import RedirectView urlpatterns = patterns('', url(r'^some-page/$', RedirectView.as_view(url='/')), ...
In above example
'/' means it will redirect to index page,
where you can add any url patterns also.
for django v2+
from django.contrib import admin from django.shortcuts import redirect from django.urls import path, include urlpatterns = [ # this example uses named URL 'hola-home' from app named hola # for more redirect's usage options: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/2.1/topics/http/shortcuts/ path('', lambda request: redirect('hola/', permanent=False)), path('hola/', include("hola.urls")), path('admin/', admin.site.urls), ]
This way is supported in older versions of django if you cannot support RedirectView
def url_redirect(request): return HttpResponseRedirect("/new_url/")
In the url.py
url(r'^old_url/$', "website.views.url_redirect", name="url-redirect"),
You can make it permanent by using
I was trying to redirect all 404s to the home page and the following worked great:
from django.views.generic import RedirectView ... under urlpatterns, added: url(r'^.*/$', RedirectView.as_view(url='/home/')), url(r'^$', RedirectView.as_view(url='/home/')),
