Project Purpose

This package checks your Django project's URL Configuration for a few things.

  • Do the paths or regular expressions in your URL configuration tree end with slashes (or, for regular expressions, /$)
  • Is the URL configuration tree comprised of only URLPattern and URLResolver instances (path() and include())?
  • Is ROOT_URLCONF defined in settings, and does it point to a valid Python module with urlpatterns defined?

Project Rationale

I constantly forget to add a slash to the end of my URI paths. This leads to strange behavior, and can be tricky to catch even with proper testing.

What's more, the errors raised when something is amiss with the URL configuration can be tricky to debug and understand.

As such, this package aim to try and make developers lives easier by providing targeted checks of the URL configuration tree. This is meant to be used as part of a "belt-and-braces" approach, and is not a substitution for tests!

I am open to suggestions on improving the checks. Please open an issue to do so.
