#28064 closed Bug (fixed)

MultiValueDictKeyError double quotes missing str keys in error messages

With a builtin dict a KeyError error message looks like this:

>>> {}['key']
KeyError: 'key'

However, with MultiValueDict the error message looks like this:

django.utils.datastructures.MultiValueDictKeyError: "'key'"

I was a bit surprised when I first noticed this, as at first glance it looked as if I had somehow quoted some keys ('key' rather than just key) before looking them up in a dictionary.
