#17716 new Bug

include(arg, namespace=None, app_name=None) replace app_name with namespace

Reported by: blackip@… Owned by: nobody
Component: Core (URLs) Version: 1.4-alpha-1
Severity: Normal Keywords: include reverse url
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no

Description (last modified by aaugustin)

When we register urls - we can specify app_name like this

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    url(r'^inventory/', include('inventory.urls', app_name='inventory')),
    url(r'^cart/', include('cart.urls',app_name='cart')),

Then we can use reverse method or {% url cart:cart %} to generate url.

But it does not work

got NoReverseMatch at /cart/

u'cart' is not a registered namespace
Request Method:	GET
Request URL:	http://localhost:8000/cart/
Django Version:	1.4a1

When I register urls like this

    url(r'^inventory/', include('inventory.urls', namespace='inventory')),
    url(r'^cart/', include('cart.urls',namespace='cart')),


According to documentation format for urls should be

{% url app_name:view_name %}

but actual format is

{% url namespace:view_name %}

I think this is a bug

The source of bug may be in
file /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/conf/urls/
function include(arg, namespace=None, app_name=None)

It returns tuple (urlconf_module, app_name, namespace)

It looks like it should be (urlconf_module, namespace, app_name)

Reading the URL namespaces docs, it appears that it's invalid to write an include with app_name but without namespace.

Django could check that app_name and namespace are either both None, or both not None, in django.conf.urls.url, making this error is easier to debug. Accepting on this basis.

We should either make this an error, or make it work. Aymeric has a cunning plan that requires this to work in some sense, so we'll probably go for the latter approach (might not be too hard).

In any case, the ambiguous and non-documented, confusing behaviour is currently unacceptable.

I'm new in django and begin learning info about urls, app_name and namspace

It's realized so intricately:
when include

url(r'^anypages1/', include('anypages.urls', app_name='anypages' namespace='anypages1'))
url(r'^anypages2/', include('anypages.urls', app_name='anypages' namespace='anypages2'))

when reverse

reverse('anypages:url_name', args=[myarg], current_app='anypages1') 
reverse('anypages:url_name', args=[myarg], current_app='anypages2') 

now app_name used in viewname as namespace and namespace pass as curreny_app parameter
so so intricately!

may be at least rename parameter current_app to current_namespace? Or any another actions for more consistency...

Sorry for my english:)
