I'm writing a member-based web application, and I need to be able to redirect the page after login. I want to use the named url from my urls.py script in my views.py file for the login application, but I can't for the life of me figure out what to do. What I have is this:
def login(request): if request.session.has_key('user'): if request.session['user'] is not None: return HttpResponseRedirect('/path/to/page.html')
What I want to accomplish is something like:
def login(request): if request.session.has_key('user'): if request.session['user'] is not None: return HttpResponseRedirect url pageName
I get syntax errors when I execute this, any ideas?
You need to use the
reverse() utils function.
from django.urls import reverse # or Django < 2.0 : from django.core.urlresolvers import reverse def myview(request): return HttpResponseRedirect(reverse('arch-summary', args=))
args satisfies all the arguments in your url's regular expression. You can also supply named args by passing a dictionary.
