Python/django error: 'myapp' is not a registered namespace


I am facing a very unusual problem.

I've registered the namespace myapp using app_name in my main project's urls.py file like this:

app_name = 'myapp'

I'm writing a view where the user registers and is redirected to the homepage. However, when I'm using the redirect function in myapp's views.py file like this:

return redirect('myapp: index')

I'm getting the following error after clicking the registration form's submit button:

NoReverseMatch at / 'myapp' is not a registered namespace

I tired looking for a solution but to no avail. Help please :)


app_name = 'myapp'

is meant to be put <a href="https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.10/topics/http/urls/#url-namespaces-and-included-urlconfs" rel="nofollow">in an <em>included</em> urls.py</a>. It has no effect in a urls.py that is not included in another.

I recommend moving your URLs into the app and including them in your site's urls.py. Then your namespace should work.
