Include Django URL patterns with decorators (python 3.4+/django 2+)

Project description

Include Django URL patterns with decorators.

Maintained by Stéphane “Twidi” Angel, and Jon Dufresne on based on the original work from Jeff Kistler on


Assuming you have pip installed, run the following command to install from PyPI:

pip install django-decorator-include


decorator_include is intended for use in URL confs as a replacement for the django.conf.urls.include function. It works in almost the same way as include, however the first argument should be either a decorator or an iterable of decorators to apply, in reverse order, to all included views. Here is an example URL conf:

from django.urls import path
from django.contrib.auth.decorators import login_required

from decorator_include import decorator_include

from mysite.views import index

urlpatterns = [
    path('', views.index, name='index'),
    path('secret/', decorator_include(login_required, 'mysite.secret.urls')),

Make sure you are in a virtualenv on a valid python version.

Grab the sources from Github:

git clone -b develop

Then go into the newly created django-decorator-include directory and install the few needed libraries:

pip install -r requirements.txt

To run the tests, this library provides a test project, so you can launch them this way:

django-admin test --settings=tests.settings tests

Or simply launch the script (it will run this exact command):


Base your work on the develop branch. Iit should be the default branch on git assuming you used the -b develop argument on the git clone command as shown above.

When creating the pull request, ensure you are using the correct base (twidi/django-decorator-include on develop).
