A flask-style `route` decorator for django views

> Simple things should be simple, complex things should be possible (c)Alan Kay

There is some contradiction between decoupling and DRY principles
in django urls. Why not use flasky `@route` decorator to fix this issue?

pip install django-route-decorator

It's compatible with django >= 2.0 only,
because it uses new `urls.path` syntax.

Simple things should be simple
Just decorate your views with an instance of `Route`:

from route_decorator import Route

route = Route()

def foo_view(request):

def bar_view(request):

And don't forget to add the routes into your ``:

from . import views

urlpatterns += views.route.patterns

Now you have your views binded to `/foo-view` and `/bar-view` respectively.

You can also get map urlname -> url with `route.names` and pass them to
frontend maybe. In our case it would be:

'foo_view': '/foo-view',
'bar_view': '/bar-view'

Complex things should be possible
You can pass `url_prefix` and `name_prefix` to route:

route = Router('/api', 'api:')

And also use `path` and `name` in a decorator:

@route('/baz', 'baz-name')
def baz_view(request):

So it would be bind to `/api/baz` with name `api:baz-name`.
