Below is quick hack to pull out an array of all the url names in a project.
The script iterates through the “urlpatterns” defined in your settings file as the ROOT_URLCONF.
From the “python manage.py shell” prompt:
from django.conf import settings URL_NAMES =  def load_url_pattern_names(patterns): """Retrieve a list of urlpattern names""" global URL_NAMES for pat in patterns: if pat.__class__.__name__ == 'RegexURLResolver': # load patterns from this RegexURLResolver load_url_pattern_names(pat.url_patterns) elif pat.__class__.__name__ == 'RegexURLPattern': # load name from this RegexURLPattern if pat.name is not None and pat.name not in URL_NAMES: URL_NAMES.append( pat.name) return URL_NAMES root_urlconf = __import__(settings.ROOT_URLCONF) # access the root urls.py file print load_url_pattern_names(root_urlconf.urls.urlpatterns) # access the "urlpatterns" from the ROOT_URLCONF
There’s probably an easier way to this, but I needed the url names for an error checking script.
