Django Web Exceptions Documentation Status

Throwing web exceptions like in AioHTTP

What and why?

In AioHTTP you can raise any response as exception (this is very cool). But Django can raise only 3+1 web exceptions.

This package allow you to raise as exception any of HTTP response.


The full documentation is at


Install Django Web Exceptions:

pip install django-web-exceptions

Add it to your MIDDLEWARE:

    # ...
    # ...


Import exceptions and raise anywhere

from web_exceptions import exceptions

# ...

def index(request):
    """ Simple view raise redirectexception """
    raise exceptions.HTTPMovedPermanently('/foo')

Also you can customize any kind of exception status code as custom handler, defined in like django error handlers .

from myapp import views

handler300 = <callable view>
handler400 = <callable view>
handler<status_code> = <callable view>
