Double redirect with APPEND_SLASH and i18n_patterns

Reported by: ssteinberger@… Owned by: bpeschier
Component: Core (URLs) Version: 1.4
Severity: Normal Keywords: redirect, i18n, append_slash
Cc: Triage Stage: Ready for checkin
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


Just a thought:
Using settings.APPEND_SLASH = True in combination with i18n_patterns may lead to unnecessary redirects, like so:

Opening URL: "/some_i18n_url"
Redirect to: "/en/some_i18n_url"
Redirect to: "/en/some_i18n_url/"

It would be more efficient to combine those redirects into.

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted

This might require adding a new parameter (force_append_slash) to request.get_full_path as the slash might have to be inserted between the path and a possible query string. Then CommonMiddleware could also benefit from it.

It might be interesting to include RedirectMiddleware in the scope of this ticket as it also performs redirects that can interact with APPEND_SLASH.

  • Has patch set
  • Owner changed from nobody to bpeschier
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Created a PR for the suggestions above, should we also document the parameter as part of the public API?

Looks good, pending some cosmetic edits. I don't feel strongly that the parameter should be documented, but happy to have it if someone sees a use case for it in user code.

In 9128762:

Fixed #19910 -- Added slash to i18n redirect if APPEND_SLASH is set.

This introduces a force_append_slash argument for request.get_full_path()
which is used by RedirectFallbackMiddleware and CommonMiddleware when
handling redirects for settings.APPEND_SLASH.
