Description

In case you want to assing in an URLconf the same URL pattern to more than one view (or callback function), such that the next ones are fallbacks in case of errors (ie. HTTP response codes >= 400). This is often the case when combining different apps with dynamic URLs (such as CMSs) and you want to respond with the one that has that content.

Usage

As you can see from the following example the URL alternatives dispatcher is simply used as part of the urlpatterns variable in urls.py and supports passing of positional and keyword arguments, eg.:

urlpatterns += pattern(‘’,
(r’^’, ‘urlalternatives.views.dispatcher’, {‘callbacks’:[
app1.views.failing404, ‘app2.views.working’, (redirect_to, [], {‘url’:’/’}),

]}),

)
