We all hate bots, lets admit it. Especially the ones that try to gain access to our most secret endpoints. Well we have an easy
solution for your django application. django_spam simply adds common admin urls to url conf so when bots (or human
for that matter) try and access them, they will get redirected...

To install:
```python
pip install django-spam
```

Add to apps list:
```python
INSTALLED_APPS = [
'...',
'django_spam',
'...'
]
```

django_spam ships with some default endpoints bots might try to hit. If you would like to add extra routes, simply add
a ``SPAM_ROUTES`` variable to your settings file that contains a list of extra endpoints you would like
to add. *no leading slashes*
```python
SPAM_ROUTES = [
'admin.php',
'admin/login.php',
'administrator/index.php',
'index.php',
'...',
]
```

The same goes for ``SPAM_URLS`` you would like traffic to get forwarded to. Add some fun urls:

```python
SPAM_URLS = [
# 10 hours of Donald Trump saying bing bing bong
'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKbOqEk6rsk',
# 10 hours of Darth Vader breathing
'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=un8FAjXWOBY',
'...',
]
```

Include ``django_spam.urls`` to root url file:
```python

'...'
url(r'', include('django_spam.urls')), # for Django >= 2.0: path('', include('django_spam.urls')),
'...',
```

If for some odd reason you need to exclude routes, define ``EXCLUDED_ROUTES`` in settings. *no leading slashes*

```python
EXCLUDED_ROUTES = [
'admin.php',
'index.php'
]
```
