Django-based URL resolving mechanism, which store the URL patterns in database

Project description

A URL resolver which store the URL patterns in database, which means a webmaster can define some URLs.


Install package from pypi:

$ easy_install django-dburlresolvers

Put dbresolver into your installed applications:


Change the project file like this:

from dbresolver import get_dbresolver_patterns

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    ... # your URLs

urlpatterns += get_dbresolver_patterns()


Register some views of your project to get available in dbresolver. You may register it manually or automatically (by autodiscovering):

  • Manually: Using the dbresolver API directly:

    >>> from dbresolver import register_view
    >>> from fooapp.views import foo_listing
    >>> register_view(foo_listing, 'Foo listing')
  • Automatically: Put this code in your project (we recommended in the project

    from dbresolver import autodiscover_views

    You need to define an especial views_to_register method, like ilustrate this example:

    def foo_listing(request):
        foo_list = FooModel.objects.all()
        return render_to_response('fooapp/foo_listing.html',
                                {'foo_list': foo_list},
    def views_to_register():
        """ returns views to be registered with dbresolver """
        return (
            (foo_listing, _('Foo listing')),

Also you can register generic views with parameters. For example, imagine you have a view like this:

def render_template(request, template_name=None):
        return direct_to_template(request, template=template_name)
    except TemplateDoesNotExist:
        raise Http404()

You may register the view with a parameter which be defined for admin user:

>>> from configfield import params
>>> register_view(render_template, 'Generic view to render a template',
                          label='Template to be rendered',

If you want autoregistering of that view, the code was like this:

def views_to_register():
    return (
        {'view': render_template,
         'label': 'Generic view to render a template',
         'params': (
             params.Template(name='template_name', label='Template to be rendered'),

Now you only have to enter on admin site to create URL patterns attached to views. You can use both Django default regular expressions and simpler surlex expressions.


Fixed a model form error when used outside admin.
