I want to detect if the request came from the
foo.herokuapp.com host and what path was requested. How do I get this information about a Flask request?
You can examine the url through several
Imagine your application is listening on the following application root:
And a user requests the following URI:
In this case the values of the above mentioned attributes would be the following:
path /foo/page.html full_path /foo/page.html?x=y script_root /myapplication base_url http://www.example.com/myapplication/foo/page.html url http://www.example.com/myapplication/foo/page.html?x=y url_root http://www.example.com/myapplication/
You can easily extract the host part with the appropriate splits.
An example of using this:
from flask import request @app.route('/') def index(): return request.base_url
