A simple redirects utility that uses a json file for redirects definitions

Project description


Import this in and assign it to urlpatterns BEFORE custom urls. (redirects should be hit first) e.g:

from django_redirects_file import load_redirects

urlpatterns = load_redirects()
urlpatterns += patterns('',
    url(r'^(?P<template>.*)/?$', TemplateFinder.as_view()),

Format of redirects.json

The json format is simply key/value pairs, from source to destination:

    "getubuntu/download_static": "",
    "testing/quantal/alpha1":    ""

To convert old “double spaced” redirects.txt:

    i.split('  ')[0:2] #ignore the 3rd item, in-line comments
    for i in open('/path/to/redirects.txt').readlines()
    if len(i.split('  ')) >= 2 #ignore whole comment lines
