Parsing URL Paramaters in Web Framework

Communicator

I have a simplexml dashboard that I want to drilldown into a django/web framework dashboard and pass along some parameters in the URL. How can the web framework dashboard receive/parse these parameters for use in a search?

Today I had the same use case to implement and I posted my solution here:

I was able to achieve this like so:

URL: ....myserver:8000/dj/en-us/myapp/mydashboard/?app=myapp

Inside javascript section (within the require(xxx) block):

function getParameterByName(name) {
name = name.replace(/[\[]/, "\\[").replace(/[\]]/, "\\]");
var regex = new RegExp("[\\?&]" + name + "=([^&#]*)"),
    results = regex.exec(location.search);
return results == null ? "" : decodeURIComponent(results[1].replace(/\+/g, " "));
}

var application= getParameterByName('app');
tokens.set("application", application);

Then in block managers section:

{% searchmanager
    id="dropdown_results"
    app="myapp"
    search='search application="$application$"'|token_safe
    preview=True
    autostart=True
    earliest_time="$earlyval$"|token_safe
    latest_time="$lateval$"|token_safe
%}
