Validate that your slugs do not match a keyword in your url

Project description

Validate that your slugs do not match a keyword in your url

Rationale

Suppose you have some of urls like:

  • country-of-fire/edit/

  • country-of-fire/hidden-leaf-village/

  • country-of-fire/hidden-leaf-village/edit/

  • country-of-fire/forest-of-death/

  • country-of-fire/forest-of-death/edit/

If the feudal lords of the Country of Fire decided to found a new village, you would kindly try to suggest them to avoid names like edit or delete; they probably won’t understand anything about technological constraints, but your suggestion could be nonetheless welcome.

Instead of trying to explain why it’s not a good idea to found “Edit” (though maybe “Edit Village” may be acceptable), you may just write a piece of software that will not let anybody register any place suchly named. This is called validation.

Usage

Modify your settings.py to include the list of words you want to use as keywords:

# settings.py

URL_KEYWORDS = ('new', edit', 'delete')

Then add the validator to your slug field:

# models.py

from urlkeyword import validate_url_keyword

class Village(Model):
    code = models.SlugField(max_length=20, validators=[validate_url_keyword])
