Django URL converters

Project description

django-urlconverter: Django automatic view parameters conversion

The django-urlconverter package provides an easy way to convert view arguments from simple types to complex ones, like models, or just do some processing using robust syntax. Most interesting application of the package is to convert view arguments which are object ids (from database via ORM) to the instances of those objects (Models).

from .models import FooBar


class Foo(object):
    """Foo converter. Convert an object id to FooBar instance."""
    def __init__(self, **kwargs):

    """View function which gets a converted foo2.
