Learning django & python.
Just set up a new site after doing the tutorial. Now for arguments sake say I want to add a bunch of About us, FAQ basic html pages with very limited dynamic elements do you go ahead and write a new line in my urls.py file for each page? or is their some neat way to say map all * *.html to the relevant .html file directly?
In general even if it does require a view will I have to write a new line in the url.py file for every page?
As long as there is some uniquely identifying section in the URL, you will not need to create an entry in urls.py for each direct-template url.
For example, you could say that all urls ending in ".html" are referencing a direct file from the templates.
urlpatterns = patterns('django.views.generic.simple', (r'(.+\.html)$', 'direct_to_template'), # ... )
Take a look at http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.2/ref/generic-views/#django-views-generic-simple-direct-to-template for details.
Currently the best way to do this is using TemplateView from generic class-based views:
from django.views.generic.base import TemplateView url(r'^$', TemplateView.as_view(template_name='index.html'), name='home'),
