Built-in Views

Several of Django’s built-in views are documented in Writing views as well as elsewhere in the documentation.

Serving files in development

static.serve(request, path, document_root, show_indexes=False)

There may be files other than your project’s static assets that, for convenience, you’d like to have Django serve for you in local development. The serve() view can be used to serve any directory you give it. (This view is not hardened for production use and should be used only as a development aid; you should serve these files in production using a real front-end web server).

The most likely example is user-uploaded content in MEDIA_ROOT. django.contrib.staticfiles is intended for static assets and has no built-in handling for user-uploaded files, but you can have Django serve your MEDIA_ROOT by appending something like this to your URLconf:

from django.conf import settings
from django.urls import re_path
from django.views.static import serve

# ... the rest of your URLconf goes here ...

if settings.DEBUG:
    urlpatterns += [
        re_path(r'^media/(?P<path>.*)$', serve, {
            'document_root': settings.MEDIA_ROOT,

Note, the snippet assumes your MEDIA_URL has a value of '/media/'. This will call the serve() view, passing in the path from the URLconf and the (required) document_root parameter.

Since it can become a bit cumbersome to define this URL pattern, Django ships with a small URL helper function static() that takes as parameters the prefix such as MEDIA_URL and a dotted path to a view, such as 'django.views.static.serve'. Any other function parameter will be transparently passed to the view.


Django comes with a few views by default for handling HTTP errors. To override these with your own custom views, see Customizing error views.

404 (page not found) 视图

defaults.page_not_found(request, exception, template_name='404.html')

When you raise Http404 from within a view, Django loads a special view devoted to handling 404 errors. By default, it’s the view django.views.defaults.page_not_found(), which either produces a very simple “Not Found” message or loads and renders the template 404.html if you created it in your root template directory.

The default 404 view will pass two variables to the template: request_path, which is the URL that resulted in the error, and exception, which is a useful representation of the exception that triggered the view (e.g. containing any message passed to a specific Http404 instance).


  • The 404 view is also called if Django doesn’t find a match after checking every regular expression in the URLconf.
  • The 404 view is passed a RequestContext and will have access to variables supplied by your template context processors (e.g. MEDIA_URL).
  • 如果 DEBUG 设置为``True``(在您的配置模块中),那么您的404视图将永远不会被使用,作为替代,你的URL配置与一些调试信息将会被显示。

The 500 (server error) view

defaults.server_error(request, template_name='500.html')



如果 DEBUG 设置为``True``(在您的配置模块中),那么您的500视图将永远不会被使用,作为替代,调用回溯与一些调试信息将会被显示。

403 (HTTP Forbidden) 视图

defaults.permission_denied(request, exception, template_name='403.html')

与404和500视图一样,Django有处理403 Forbidden错误的视图。如果视图导致403异常,那么Django默认会调用视图``django.views.defaults.permission_denied``。

这个视图从你的根模板目录加载和渲染 403.html 模板,如果这个文件不存在将会显示“403 Forbidden”,按照 RFC 7231#section-6.5.3 (HTTP 1.1 规范)。 模板上下文包含 exception,它是触发视图的异常的字符串表示形式。

django.views.defaults.permission_denied is triggered by a PermissionDenied exception. To deny access in a view you can use code like this:

from django.core.exceptions import PermissionDenied

def edit(request, pk):
    if not request.user.is_staff:
        raise PermissionDenied
    # ...

400 (bad request) 视图

defaults.bad_request(request, exception, template_name='400.html')

When a SuspiciousOperation is raised in Django, it may be handled by a component of Django (for example resetting the session data). If not specifically handled, Django will consider the current request a ‘bad request’ instead of a server error.

django.views.defaults.bad_request, is otherwise very similar to the server_error view, but returns with the status code 400 indicating that the error condition was the result of a client operation. By default, nothing related to the exception that triggered the view is passed to the template context, as the exception message might contain sensitive information like filesystem paths.

bad_request``视图也仅在以下情况下使用 :setting:`DEBUG` ``False
