Fix Python – Python + Django page redirect


Asked By – Kyle Hayes

How do I accomplish a simple redirect (e.g. cflocation in ColdFusion, or header(location:http://) for PHP) in Django?

Now we will see solution for issue: Python + Django page redirect


It’s simple:

from django.http import HttpResponseRedirect

def myview(request):
    return HttpResponseRedirect("/path/")

More info in the official Django docs

Update: Django 1.0

There is apparently a better way of doing this in Django now using generic views.

Example –

from django.views.generic.simple import redirect_to

urlpatterns = patterns('',   
    (r'^one/$', redirect_to, {'url': '/another/'}),


There is more in the generic views documentation.

Update #2: Django 1.3+

In Django 1.5 redirect_to no longer exists and has been replaced by RedirectView. Credit to Yonatan

from django.views.generic import RedirectView

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    (r'^one/$', RedirectView.as_view(url='/another/')),
