Creating the Houses and Checkers URL Paths

Learn how to create and register uniform resource locators in Django.

What are URLs?

Before we create URLs for our project, we must understand the difference between a URL and a URI. A Uniform Resource Locator (URL) is a type of Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), which is a set of letters and numbers that we can use to identify a resource on a system. With a URI, we have a simple but extensible pattern of identifying resources on the web. The uniformity of the resource identifiers makes it possible for them to be used and reused in the same or different conditions, no matter the method and procedure employed in accessing the resources. Each resource is assumed to be identifiable by a unique identifier. URIs are used to identify web pages, images, electronic documents, and information sources with a consistent purpose.
