How can I use if else for regex in flask


In my Flask app, users can type a url for their post. But I want let them to use only a-zA-Z0-9_- in the url. If anything else includes in the url more than the a-zA-Z0-9_- then I want to return "False" and otherwise "True"
Here is a some demonstrate.

url = request.form.get('user_url')

if url not in a-zA-Z0-9_- structure :
   return False
   return True

How can I use python regex to make this happens ?


Ok, I could make it with @Tim Biegeleisen’s answer. Here is the answer.

if'[^a-zA-Z0-9_-]', url):
    return False
    return True
