Bug Description

Hi Gaetan,

the following is the little bug we discovered in Eupen. We did the fix together in my appy copy, now I see that in 0.8.0 it is still there, so I remind you to apply this bugfix to your code.

In appy/shared/, line 117 is currently:

  urlRex = re.compile(r'http://([^:/]+)(:[0-9]+)?(/.+)?', re.I)

It should be:

  urlRex = re.compile(r'http[s]?://([^:/]+)(:[0-9]+)?(/.+)?', re.I)

to accept also URLs starting with "https:"

And another suggestion for line 142 of the same file:

        else: raise 'Wrong URL: %s' % str(url)

should be replaed by

        else: raise Exception('Wrong URL: %s' % str(url))

because newer Python versions (at least 2.7.1) no longer accept to raise simple strings. If you specify a wrong URL, you wouldn't get an exception "Wrong URL: foo://bar" but the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "l:\snapshots\appy-0.8.0\appy\shared\", line 142, in __init__
    else: raise 'Wrong URL: %s' % str(url)
TypeError: exceptions must be old-style classes or derived from BaseException, not str


Hi Luc,
OK I've integrated both updates, they will be released in Appy 0.8.1 !
Thanks a lot ;-)
