How to get the path name of an URL path in django using the request.path

I have urls paths with name in my urls.py file.

urls.py

urlpatterns = [
    path('home/', views.home, name="home_view"),
]

my views.py

def home(request):
    path_name = get_path_name(request.path)
    return HttpResponse(path_name)

Now, I need to get the path name, "home_view" in the HttpResponse.

How can I make my custom function, get_path_name() to return the path_name by taking request.path as argument?

>Solution :

You can use request.resolver_match.view_name to get the name of current view.

def home(request):
    path_name = request.resolver_match.view_name
    return HttpResponse(path_name)
