I'm writing a helper function for paginating the data, the function
needs to append a query string to the url to compose a new url with page
number, and I decide to use the "request" object to get the url and then
change it. The function I use to construct the url is "route_url", I got
an issue of using matchdict in the route_url, in the following syntax:
route_url(route_name, self.request, **self.request.matchdict)
It said "Keyword must be string", So I have to add the following codes
to change the keyword to string:
for k,v in self.request.matchdict.items():
I also need to get the route name:
Am I making simple things complicated? Well, my target is to generate a
url from "/a" to "/a?page=1", why should I go through the process of
breaking down then composing again? I finally found the *request.url *is
a more straightforward way. My question is, which way should I choose?
Is there a best practice guide to manipulating the url?
